WHOLE GRAIN BENEFITS
We’re serving 10 dishes with whole grains in January.
The great thing about whole grains is that they are a good source of B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, iron and fiber. And as much as we try to eat our recommended daily fruits and veggies, sometimes we can’t get to them, whole grains contain antioxidants that are not found in some fruits and vegetables, providing more goodness for us.
Studies have shown that people who consume more whole grains consistently weight less than those who consumed less whole grain products. Whole grains reduce the risk of heart disease by decreasing cholesterol levels & blood pressure and it reduces the risk of many types of cancer.
