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.

This year for Halloween, I decided to decorate our house with smaller pumpkins that could be roasted and enjoyed in a variety of different ways. Don’t get me wrong, we did crave one pumpkin which was set out on our front steps aimed at scaring little trick or treaters. Not sure we successfully achieved that with my amateur carving skills, but we tried.
