I’m a huge fan of high-fibre bran cereals, like All-Bran, Bran Buds, Fibre One and Fibre First. They contain a whopping 12 to 18 grams of fibre per ½ cup (125 mL). That’s outstanding! Fibre is a shortfall nutrient. Most people get half as much as they need (women need 25 grams daily and men 38 grams). Fibre is essential for a healthy gut, including a lower risk of colon cancer, constipation, hemorrhoids, and diverticular disease (small pouches that form in your colon). Fibre lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol and blood pressure, and helps prevent spikes in blood sugar after eating. It trims your waistline, keeps your appetite under control and makes you feel full longer. Make it easy to meet your daily requirement by starting your day with one of these high-fibre, all-stars.
