  20. How well do we eat? EASY WAYS TO INCREASE YOUR FIBRE • It’s always a good idea to start your day with a whole grain breakfast cereal & whole wheat toast with a fresh fruit. • Eat plenty of fruits & vegetables (check the Canadian food guide). Apples, grapefruit, brussel sprouts, broccoli & beans (especially navy & pinto). • Stick with fruits & vegetables that are in season to cut costs.

  21. How well do we eat? Eat the whole fruit instead of drinking a glass of fruit juice. One orange contains about six times as much fibre as a 4 ounce glass of juice. Whenever you can, opt for whole wheat breads and whole grain products. Flour made from whole wheat contains three times as much fibre as white flour which is refined.
