It turns out that most adults are consuming less than the recommended daily intake of dietary fibre, only around half the recommended amount.
You might be wondering why that might be a problem.
Well, the thing is, there are all sorts of health benefits associated with dietary fibre, from its effect on heart health to type-2 diabetes to cancer. These associations have shown that as fibre intake increases, chronic disease risk decreases.
Fibre is found natually in plants – fruits, vegetables, legumes and wholegrains. When increasing your fibre intake to reach the recommended amount (30g/day for men; 25g/day for women), it is a good idea to do it gradually, to minimise potential side effects such as wind and bloating.
This recipe is packed full of fabulous fibre from the cannellini beans and onion. Rich and tasty to satisfy your tastebuds and your hunger. As well as being packed with plenty of fibre it also has slow release energy, to keep you fuller for longer. Great as a breakfast or brunch option, but also perfect for a simple dinner.
