#CocoFood: It’s all about the fibre

We put our bodies through so much pain don’t we?

September 7th, 2018

We put our bodies through so much pain don’t we? From not doing enough exercise to not eating the right foods, from not drinking enough water to drinking way too much alcohol, from not getting enough sleep to not relaxing our mind and body correctly.

We’re Millennials, we’re wanderers, and we live for the moment, but we need to start taking better care of ourselves from the inside out. This applies to #TeamCoco too, were are so busy finding beautiful places and things to write about that we sometimes forget that we should be kinder to ourselves.

Let’s start with fibre, a recent survey of 2,000 UK adults by Nairn’s, the UK’s leading producer of oatcakes and second largest gluten free brand has found that 54% of Brits lack fibre in their diet. Yes, 54% lack fibre!

Nairn’s Fine Milled Oatcakes are a great source of soluble fibre, and the addition of extra oat bran – the most fibre rich part of the oat helps to boost the benefits, aiding digestion lowering cholesterol and releasing energy slowly to make you feel fuller for longer. Their light texture and creamy taste makes them perfect to eat with delicately flavoured toppings from smoked salmon and scrambled eggs to homemade soup, plus of course the obligatory cheese topping. And, guess what…they use a wheat free recipe, ideal for anyone limiting wheat in their diets.

More fibre and no wheat, a total win win, it’s the small changes that count!

Nairn’s Fine Milled Oatcakes, priced at £1, available from Sainsbury’s.
