The fact that fibre, whole-grains, fruit and vegetables are healthy should not come as a surprise, but their intake has decreased with the popularity of low-carb diets. With that in mind, research from the University of Cambridge has recently reconfirmed that fibre and whole-grain are important for long-term health. The recommended fibre intake is 30 g each day. But what does that look like?
- Two Weetabix 3 g
- One apple 4 g
- Half a cup of rolled oats 9 g
- One thick slice of brown bread 2 g
- One potato with skin 2 g
- One cup of cooked lentils 4 g
- Two carrots 6 g
