High Fibre Foods

It helps prevent heart diseases, diabetes, and weight gain.  A deficiency of fibre can lead to elevated levels of cholesterol and sugar in the blood.

Beans/Lentils
•Soy Beans- protect against birth defects and reduce the chances of diabetes 
Kidney Beans- anti-aging and energy booster 
Lentils- stabilize blood sugar and lower cholesterol 

Seeds/Grains/Nuts
Nuts- Antioxidants and help in weight loss 
Chia Seeds- high in proteins and keep your heart healthy 
Quinoa- high in iron 

Vegetables:
Broccoli- known to help prevent cancer and help reduce cholesterol
Cabbage- ideal for weight loss and improving concentration 
Mushrooms- boost immunity and are a good source of vitamin D
Brussels Sprouts- improve DNA stability and prevents cholesterol 

Fruits
