    Get More Fibre in Your Diet

    We all know that dietary fibre — found mainly in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes — can prevent or relieve constipation. But fibre has so many other health benefits as well, from lowering cholesterol levels to helping us maintain a healthy weight. Here’s why we all need more fibre in our lives.

    • Fibre helps regulate bowel movements and maintain bowel health.

    Dietary fibre decreases your chance of constipation. A high-fiber diet may also lower your risk of developing hemorrhoids and small pouches in your colon.

    • Fibre can lower your cholesterol levels, and boost your heart health.

    Soluble fibre found in beans, oats, flaxseed and oat bran may help lower total blood cholesterol levels by lowering ‘bad’ cholesterol levels. High-fibre foods may also have other heart-health benefits, such as reduc

    Why We Love Superfoods

    Superfoods like blueberries, salmon, kale and quinoa have been more popular than ever, thanks to the great nutritional value and health benefits they promise. Whenever you feel like opening a bag of potato chips instead of having a handful of almonds as a snack, remember these wonderful benefits and you might just change your mind.   

    Superfoods help your body fight free radicals. Superfoods like berries are rich in antioxidants, which destroy the free radicals that can damage the cells in your body. This protection improves your health and reduces your risk of disease.

    5 Ways to Enjoy Almonds

    There are so many ways to get your daily serving of almonds as these versatile nuts can be made into a salad, eaten whole as a snack, or even blended into a spread or beverage. Almonds are among the healthiest of tree nuts. Just a handful of nutrient-rich almonds a day helps promote heart health and prevent weight gain, and it may even help fight diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer's.

    Almonds are rich in vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium, and a significant source of protein and fiber. One 23-almond serving packs 13 grams of healthy unsaturated fats, and just 160 calories! Here are five of our favorite recipes to try.

    Almond butter is a great healthy alternative to peanut butter. All you need is almonds and a food processor, and you'll have a creamy spread to eat with toast and waffles, or spoon onto apple slices for a midday snack.

    Featured Product: Wild Rice

    The Health Promotion Board recently released a controversial report that eating white rice increases one's likelihood of getting diabetes. Whether or not you agree, it's never a bad idea to explore other delicious, healthy carbohydrate options.

    If like us, you can't live without rice, you might want to try wild rice, an exceptionally nutritious choice with a lovely nutty flavour.

    Unlike regular white and brown rice that we consume in Asia, wild rice isn't actually rice! It's classified as grass that happen to produce edible grains. Three of the four known species are native to North America and have long been harvested by native Americans. The fourth is native to China where it is now more common to consume the stem as a vegetable instead of the grain.
