4 Easy Whole Grain Recipes

4 Easy Whole Grain Recipes

This September we’re celebrating Whole Grain Month, but what exactly are whole grains? According to the Whole Grain Counsel, a nonprofit consumer advocacy group working to “ increase consumption of whole grains for better health,” Whole grains or foods made from them contain all the essential parts and naturally-occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed in their original proportions. If the grain has been processed (e.g., cracked, crushed, rolled, extruded, and/or cooked), the food product should deliver the same rich balance of nutrients that are found in the original grain seed.”

100% of the original kernel must be present in the food to qualify as whole grain. Examples of whole grains include: barley, corn, millet, oats, brown rice, rye, whole wheat flour, and wild rice. There are also other types of rice such as red rice or black rice. Don’t be fooled. The color of the food does not determine whether it qualifies as whole grain.

The health benefits of incorporating these grains into your diet is phenomenal! Whole grains have been proven to lower the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and obesity. They promote healthy cholesterol levels and blood pressure, and even diminish acne breakouts and allergies!

Adding whole grains to your diet is easy! Just switching a few of your refined wheat products for whole wheat ones makes a difference. To help you make the switch to whole grains we’ve compiled a few recipies.One look at these treats and you won’t want to go back to refined grains!
