Shopping for a Healthy Diet: High Fibre, Low Sugar
By Louise Robertson and Sarah Howe
What foods should you buy for your fridge and store cupboard when thinking about healthy eating? With the latest government guidelines suggesting we should be aiming to eat 30g of fibre per day and less than 5% of our total energy as sugar, then how do we do this? To give you a helping hand, we have provided a high fibre, low sugar shopping list for a new shopping app – Shoptimix. In this post we take a look at the foods we have suggested and how to use the shopping list once you are back home and have unpacked everything. Your meals should comprise of plenty of vegetables / salad / fruit and a portion of starchy carbohydrate and lean protein with each meal. The new ‘Eat Well Plate’ guides us to what we should be eating and in what quantities. .
