Whole Grains

Whole grains on your plate? Of course! They contain fiber to help fill you up and keep you regular, can help reduce the risk of heart disease and have several vitamins in them. How can you add them or sneak them in to you and your family’s meals? Well, swap out your plain white bread for whole grain, choose brown rice over white rice, add barley to your soups, use whole grain bread crumbs for meatloaf and stuffing, rolled oats as a breading, quinoa and other grains over salad and other foods. The ideas are endless, just sprinkle and enjoy. Please be mindful of package labels – color is not an indicator of “whole” grain.
