The Australian Heart Foundation recommends that the average adult consumes between 25g - 30g of dietary fibre daily, however most Australians are getting far less than that.

Fibre is plays an important role in lowering the risk of heart disease, type II diabetes and bowel cancer. Having a high fibre breakfast will help you feel fuller longer as well as help with digestion and prevent constipation. There are two types of fibre, insoluble and soluble, and both play an important role in the body.

The process of cold press juicing removes the insoluble fibre from your produce, leaving the soluble fibre intact. This allows your body to directly absorb all those important nutrients. It is still important to consume a diet rich in insoluble fibre, however, and a really easy way to boost your insoluble fibre intake is to repurpose your juice pulp into a new, yummy recipe!

So tonight, when you are making your cold press juice for the following morning, set aside some pulp and make this chia bircher. The next morning, after you have enjoyed your juice, tuck into this delicious, high fibre breakfast to help set you up for the day!
