Low calorie, high fibre!

Updated: Jul 9

Banana, blueberry, pecan, peanut butter porridge with a drizzle of maple syrup. High in in fibre. Antioxidants. Minerals. Source of protein. Low in calories as I have been careful with portion size of each item and focused on variety.


(Tip: I make it on the hob with water and the saucepan is then easier to wash up!)


Most of us need to eat more fibre and have fewer added sugars in our diet. Eating plenty of fibre is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer.


Why do we need fibre in our diet?


There is strong evidence that eating plenty of fibre (commonly referred to as roughage) is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer.

Choosing foods with fibre also makes us feel fuller, while a diet rich in fibre can help digestion and prevent constipation.
