Top 10 Foods With High-Fibre
1. Cinnamon: It's an excellent spice to add to your desserts and can be a great substitue for sugar. Cinnamon is not only delicious but it's rich in vitamins C and B9, calcium, iron, manganese, and trace elements that are essential for the proper functioning of metabolism.
2. Coriander seeds: Coriander seeds are a great source of fibre with minimum calories. In addition, they are rich in vitamins C, B1, B2 , and B6, calcium, iron, magnesium, and copper. Do not hesitate to sprinkle some on your meals for extra benefits.
3. Curry powder: To avoid using salt which tends to increase water retention, spice up your sauces with curry powder. In addition to its high fibre content, it's filled with vitamins E and B6, iron, and manganese.
4. Chicory powder: If you want to give up your morning coffee, opt for chicory powder: it brings more fibre than coffee and more vitamin B3 (or PP) too.
5. Unsweetened cocoa: You can also try unsweetened cocoa powder if you want to stock up on fibre, for example by replacing dark chocolate in a recipe with cocoa powder. Unsweetened cocoa powder is rich in trace elements: phosphorus, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, and manganese.
6. Thyme: If you do not like the taste of coriander, you can use thyme, which is also very rich in fibre. It is best to use whole and fresh and not infusion to benefit from its fibre content. You can sprinkle it on poultry, fish, vegetables, grilled meat, and etc.
7. Coconut: Rather than cereal bars as your morning snack, treat yourself to a handful of dry coconut! Very rich in fibre and manganese, it is an excellent appetite suppressant to curb cravings. Be careful not to overdo it because it is quite calorific and high in fat.
8. Almonds: Just like coconut, dried almonds are perfect for stalling a little hunger but with the same precautions related to their high fat content.
9. Wheatgerm: Not only is it rich in fibre but it also provides essential proteins for the proper functioning of the metabolism. Do not hesitate to sprinkle on salads or yogurts. It's delicious too!
10. Chestnut flour: Popular with people who are allergic or intolerant to gluten, chestnut flour brings a lot of fibre and helps eliminate bloating. You can substitute it for wheat flour in your cakes: it also tastes great!
