Filling up on Fibre

Filling up on Fibre

Fibre is a carbohydrate found in plants that contributes to our well being in a number of ways. Fibre helps us feel full following a meal, helps lower cholesterol levels by absorbing and removing it, helps keep our bowels moving and helps regulate our blood sugar. Some types of soluble fibre, for example, inulin found in leeks, asparagus, onions, garlic and wheat and oats, have a pre-biotic effect on our gut.

I will be the first to admit that I prefer to have my greens in a salad, on my pasta or accompanying my meals. Until I tried this deliciously green smoothie that is.
