Fibre Is My Best Friend

You’ve just come home from a long day at work. Your stomach is rumbling, and it can only be satisfied by a prepared combination of carbs, fat and protein. The ratio doesn’t matter; just as long as the contents of a dinner plate make it into your stomach, one way or another.

This problem has an easy solution. Raid the fridge for anything edible, and whip up something that gets the job done! No Michelin stars required tonight. But for some of you out there, gourmet expectations or not, the sight of a kitchen is enough to send shivers down the spine. There is a door leading to the world of cooking – a shining kingdom where anything is possible – but it is as solid and firm as a brick wall. What to do?

Order in. You probably said the answer out loud before you had a chance to read it. So obvious, right? But what if you’re looking for a quick and easy meal – that is also healthy? Is it possible?

We all intimately understand that we are what we eat. Trying to get healthy? Stay away from processed food, and you’re already halfway there. Keep an eye out for dishes and cuisines, which make use of fresh ingredients.

Fibre is an incredibly important nutrient whose benefits are both immediate and far-reaching. Spending too much (or not enough) time on the toilet lately? A handful of beans will show results as soon as you finish reading this post. More importantly, fibre is essential for good intestinal health. Not only is it a key to living longer, but it will also help you to avoid certain health problems. The catch? Fibre is mainly found in fruits, vegetables and whole grains – almost never in fatty foods. Try your next sandwich on whole grain bread, or opt for smoothies instead of sugary juices to take advantage of all the good fibre out there!
