Did you know that Canada is in the midst of a national fibre deficit? The average fibre intake among Canadians is approximately half of what it should be. Women aged 19 to 50 should consume 25 grams daily and men the same age should get 38 grams per day. With a proven link between eating a high fibre diet and a myriad of health benefits, Canadians don’t know what they’re missing.
Kellogg’s All-Bran cereal has partnered with the New York-based Sneaky Chef, Missy Lapine, to do something about it! Missy is a New York Times bestselling author of numerous books and famous for pioneering the technique of sneaking healthy foods into tasty dishes. The challenge is that most people aren’t aware that they don’t get enough fibre and may not even realize how much better they could feel, if only they upped their intake. Kellogg’s All-Bran contains wheat bran, the gold standard for digestive health and it’s an easy ingredient to add to favourite dishes.
