Eating healthy can be an easy move by adding whole grains to your meal. Whole grains help give us vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber and the minerals to help our body stay well and deter the risk of many diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
There are whole grains and refined grains, but it is better to ingest whole grains.
A tip to remember is that just because the bread is labeled whole wheat it does not mean it is made with 100 percent whole wheat flour; read the label. Also when you see 12 grain look at the label and make sure that it is made with whole wheat flour and it is the top ingredient or it is made with whole grain flour.
You can start by adding grains to your breakfast. Eat fiber rich foods or whole grain cereal, or oatmeal. Always check the number of grams of fiber per serving. The more fiber the more you will be less hungry and more full. Try to choose breakfast foods that are whole grain rather than refined like bagels, tortillas and many pastas.
Some types of grains are quinoa, millet, buckwheat, whole rye, and barley.
You can also eat whole grains as a quick snack. An easy snack would be to use three cups of whole grain and pop it in an air popper and there you have a healthy snack.
Have some rye crackers to munch on instead of chips.
You can eat multigrain wraps made with 100 percent whole grain and put in veggies with plain yogurt
