Including whole grains in your diet is one of the tastiest and most effective ways to reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, many cancers, and obesity. For best results include 3 servings of whole grains every day.
Here are 7 easy ways to get 3 servings a day. (1 serving is 1/2 cup prepared whole grains like oatmeal or brown rice; 1 slice of 100% whole wheat bread; a “serving” (check nutrition label) of any 100% whole grain cereal; 1 oz of 100% whole grain crackers/snacks):
If you want to be adventurous try the “other” more exotic whole grains – farro, kamut, spelt, amaranth and kasha.
If diabetic, pre-diabetic, overweight or trying to lose weight, physically intact grains are best. In other words, avoid breads and crackers.
Bring a friend (or friends) and everyone gets 20% off!
We would love to have you!
Thank you so much for re-igniting my motivation to eat healthy again. Your talk I heard years ago was the spark and this time was the fuel to get me seeking the information I need to be healthy. Giving me the benefit of your wealth of knowledge about the workings of the human body is an immense gift and I thank you. – Marguerite C. (September 2017)
