The average Australian consumes about 18-25 grams of fibre a day. What’s the daily target? The Heart Foundation recommends that Aussie adults should ingest around 30 grams per day. Fibre keeps your insides healthy. But don’t go and overdose on fibre now unless you also drink plenty of water, otherwise you may receive a visit from your unwelcomed friend, constipation! FYI: fruits, veggies and legumes are packed full of fibre – often in the skin. Pictured: a whole lot of fibre stuff (chickpeas, baby lima beans, kidney beans, butter beans, carrots, celery) and other stuff like Portobello mushrooms for meaty flavour, red onion because it’s purple, left over quinoa for extra goodness and sun-dried tomatoes because the red makes the number look good. Chop everything up, bring to boil in some good stock, then drop the heat and let it simmer baby simmer. Voila! Easy peasy! Added oil? NO! Added salt? NO! Added sugar? NO! Flavour packing? YES!
