A Better Choice For Freshness

Fibre is an important part of our diets, and it’s actually a lot easier than you might think to get enough of it! Basically, fibre refers to the indigestible parts of plant foods. It is found in vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, wholegrains and legumes. It is an essential nutrient that helps keeps our digestive system healthy and thriving, which means we should definitely consume it!

Ensuring you consume the right amount of fibre each day can help maintain a well-balanced gut microbiome and a healthy digestive tract. Without it we would be well and truly struggling to process and digest our food – and we know this can lead to *other* not so nice issues…

Some of our favourite fibre rich foods include:

  • Wholegrain breakfast cereals
  • Wholewheat pasta
  • Wholegrain bread
  • Oats
  • Fruit (berries, pears, melon and oranges)
  • Vegetables (broccoli, carrots, sweetcorn, peas and beans)
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Potatoes (in particular the skin!)
