Before starting on my quest for a healthier lifestyle, fibre always made me think of bran cereals and prunes that grandfathers would eat to stay regular. Oi! That cereal was boring and flavaourless and prunes, in my opinion, are yucky.
But fibre is very important for good over-all health and it is an important part of a balanced diet.
Insoluble fibre helps to keep you regular. Insoluble fibre is found in some vegetables and fruit, whole grains and wheat bran.
Soluble fibre helps to lower cholesterol and control blood glucose. Soluble fibre is found in some fruits like apples and oranges, vegetables like carrots, okra and eggplant, oats, barley, psyllium, and legumes like beans and lentils.
It is important to eat a variety of fibre-rich foods to get the health benefits of both types of fibre.
