Nutrition Tip May 6, 2010

Read labels carefully as products are often made to deceive you.  One such example is thinking that all brown grain products are whole grain products.  Brown dyes and additives can give foods the appearance of whole grain.  Check it out to make sure it’s actually whole grain….unless you like brown dye.  They recommend to get three-ounce equivalents of whole grains per day to reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

    I totally agree….I’ve been eating Oatmeal every single morning for as long as I can remember. It’s the absolute best. I call mine “Power Oatmeal” because I add protein powder and bran to mine.

    I’m a big fan of porridge (wholegrain of course). It’s great cycling fuel!
