Fibre? What? Where?
Oh, here you are.
I’m studying Dietetics, so I’m supposed to tell you to eat more healthy foods, more veggies, more fruits, more legumes, more whole grains, more nuts and seeds, etc. And God forbid we ever tell you to “NOT” do anything, don’t consume a lot of sodium, a lot of saturated fats, a lot of red meat, don’t sit on your butt all day. No no no, don’t tell them NOT to do anything, we’re told.
So eat cookies.
And get your fibre.
Yes, professor, I didn’t tell them NOT to do anything. Does that mean I pass? I do?
