Celebrity Chef Elizabeth Falkner Showcases
Scintillating Summer Recipes with Canada’s Hottest Food Trend: Fibre
MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 21, 2016 — Have you ever wanted to wow your guests by cooking like a pro and serving up delightfully scrumptious and deliciously surprising dishes complete with a super-secret and on-trend ingredient?
To help aspiring Canadian chefs turn thei¬r backyard BBQ or summertime soirée into the culinary talk of the town, Kellogg’s All-Bran has partnered with renowned Celebrity Chef Elizabeth Falkner to add a hit of fibre – one of the year’s hottest food trends – to her favourite summertime recipes.
“Whether I’m competing on the Food Network or cooking for family and friends, as a chef, taste always comes first,” says Chef Falkner. “That’s what’s so great about cooking with All-Bran. I can serve up healthful dishes without affecting the big, bold summertime flavours I love.”
The timing couldn’t be better for Chef Falkner to serve up fibre rich inspiration bursting with big, bold, mouth-watering taste.
Despite its known health benefits, most Canadians only get half the recommended daily fibre intake . Luckily, adding essential fibre to your daily routine is as easy as blending, filling or coating your favourite foods with All-Bran. Incorporating just a half-cup of All-Bran Original or one-third a cup of All-Bran Buds delivers a significant fibre boost — nearly half of the recommended daily intake.

Canada’s Hottest Summer Food Trend: Fibre
Although we all know fibre helps keep our digestive system running smoothly and makes for happy tummies, what most may not know is a high-fibre diet:
• Promotes heart health – lowers cholesterol and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease
• Assists with weight management2– increases feelings of fullness2
• Mitigates the risk of Type 2 Diabetes – improves blood sugar levels2
For men, the recommended daily fibre intake is 38 grams and for women, 25 grams . With a proven link between fibre and these impactful health benefits, All-Bran is committed to helping Canadians suffering from a fibre deficit discover what they’re missing.
How do you add fibre to your diet? All-Bran and Chef Falkner are calling on Canadians to share how they create high-fibre, tasty recipes using #AllBranNew on social media.
