Whole Grains Are Good for Your Whole Body
Did you know that people who eat whole grains as part of a healthy diet have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases? September is Whole Grains Month, the perfect time to make sure you are eating at least three servings of whole grains every day.
In the past, whole grains were thought to provide mostly fiber to promote digestive health, but newer research has revealed that whole grains provide additional vitamins and minerals, plus high levels of antioxidants and other healthy plant-based nutrients.
No matter which whole grains you prefer: barley, quinoa, oats, brown rice, or whole-grain pastas, breads, or cereals, make sure to check the ingredient list for "100-percent whole-grain."
For more information on including whole grains into your eating plan, consult a registered dietitian in your area.
