  • Along with other pulses such as beans, chickpeas and lentils, split peas are nutrient-dense foods that provide fibre and protein that can contribute to satiety and help maintain a healthy body weight. Being overweight or obese is a risk factor for several types of cancers.
  • Getting back on track? During cancer treatment you may have been told to reduce or eliminate your fibre intake. If you had a sore mouth, high fibre foods may have been difficult to chew. If you experienced diarrhea, high fibre foods may not have been properly digested. 
  • Now that your symptoms have improved, you can slowly add fibre back into your diet so that your body can get used to the extra fibre. Remember to drink lots of fluid with fibre, especially when introducing fibre back into your diet. Aim for 6 - 8 glasses (250 mL) per day.
