Fibre provides a variety of benefits from helping us maintain good gut health to improved digestion. It also helps blood sugar balance which is essential for healthy well-balanced hormones. More on that last point can be found here in my free guide to Happy Hormones.
Filling your plate with plenty of fibre-rich foods also helps to slow the digestive process and keeps you feeling full for longer.
Aiming to get 30g of fiber per day can improve your overall health and support healthy hormones and weight loss.
Here are a few easy ways to add more fiber to your day. (be sure to increase your intake of water as you start to include more fiber)
✔️Add chickpeas or lentils to salads
✔️Switch from regular white pasta to chickpea or Kamut pasta
✔️Add nuts and seeds to yogurt, oatmeal, smoothies
✔️Add spinach, frozen zucchini, or cauliflower to your morning smoothies
✔️Eat an avocado (½ an avocado has 5g of fibre)
