Nutrition Tip July 31 2010
Whole grains and whole grain products contain some valuable antioxidants that aren’t found in fruits and vegetables. They also contain B vitamins as well as Vitamin E, Magnesium, Iron, and Fibre.
So how do you get them? Using whole wheat flour in your recipes is one way. You can also look for the word “whole” when purchasing packaged foods like pasta, bread, and crackers. Wild rice, brown rice, quinoa, or barley can also be added to recipes and meals to help increase your whole grain intake.
