High fibre meals

Choosing more high fibre meals is the best way to increase your consumption without having to invest in a lot of supplemental products.

High fibre meals are not all that hard to create as long as you keep a few things in mind.

First, when making high fibre meals for your evening dish, always try and have at least one type of vegetable added in. The more colourful the vegetable choice usually the better it will be, with broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots and chick peas being the top choices. Remember that you don't necessarily have to consume a lot of these vegetables, just half a cup to a cup will work as a serving. Serving a side stir-fry or salad is an easy way to incorporate this in.

The next simplest time to increase your intake is with breakfast. Typical breakfast foods, as long as you make the right selection are really quite high. When in the breakfast cereal aisle look for whole wheat sources rather than those that are heavily sweetened (typical 'kiddie' cereals). Whole grain toast would also work great, and then make sure you serve this with a side of fruit. It is much smarter to consume a piece of fresh fruit rather than drinking a glass of juice because the skin is where most of this nutrient will be.

Finally when it comes time to choosing snacks, try cut up vegetable sticks with guacamole (avocados are also very high in fibre) rather than a granola bar or a bag of pretzels.
