Fuller for Longer: The Magic of High Fibre Foods

June 27, 2019

When it comes to healthy eating and weight loss, let’s always remember that the goal is never to starve ourselves. We see many people skipping breakfast or lunch just to stay under their daily calorie target. However, scientists and healthcare professionals confirm the harrowing effects of skipping meals.

We believe that food is fuel for the body. And that’s why, at Eat Your Cake, we take great pride in being able to prepare wonderfully nutritious foods that help your body grow, heal and revitalize itself!

If you’re someone who doesn’t have the opportunity to frequently snack during work or study then high fibre foods are your best friend. Not only do they support weight loss but they also improve bowel movement, maintain a healthy gut and balance blood sugar levels. More importantly, they keep you fuller for longer so you don’t feel hungry for a few hours!

Here are some fibrous delicacies you can add to every meal to keep the hunger pangs at bay.

1. Quinoa

Just one cup of quinoa contains near 5 grams of fibre. But that’s not all. Consider quinoa a complete food because it comes with a solid amount of protein and complex carbohydrates. The combination ensures your blood sugar levels don’t spike after consumption—even if you add them to a sweet, fruity salad. By the way, did you know that quinoa is a seed? Many people confuse them with grains.

2. Hummus

Hummus has been a popular dip sauce for many crispy snacks and vegetables. A 100-gram serving of hummus comprises of 4 grams of fibre and 8 grams of protein. That’s definitely a healthier option than those sour cream dips.

3. Avocado

It’s raining fun facts here but did you know that avocado is actually a berry? However, unlike most vegetables and fruits, avocados have high protein content. Couple that with near 7 grams of fibre in just 100 grams worth of serving and you’ve got a super food in your hands!

4. Broccoli

Say hello to every mother’s favourite food. Broccoli is packed with multi-vitamins and minerals like potassium and folate. A 100-gram serving contains a little over 2 grams of fibre and completes your daily recommended intake for vitamin K and C.
