Whole Grains

Ellen’s Healthy Tip for September 27th, 2006:

From Southern Living Magazine:

The 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend making half of your daily servings of grain from whole grains. Here’s how:
– Substitute brown, wild, or colored rice for white
– Purchase whole grain versions of staples such as bread, pasta, cereal, and crackers
– Snack on popcorn (without butter) instead of chips
– Add oats to cookies, or enjoy warm oatmeal for breakfast
– Substitute whole wheat flour for 1/4 to 1/2 of the white flour called for in a recipe
– Stir granola or other whole grain cereals into low-fat yogurt
