Whole Grain Recipes
All the recipes in this collection have grains as the main ingredient. Very beneficial to overall health and well-being, plus a great source of fiber. Hope you enjoy!
Fiber rich grains can help control blood sugar and reduce inflammation - and with ancient grains such as quinoa, millet and Kamut, you have a more delicious variety to choose from. Try cooked, sweetened millet as an alternative to oatmeal. Kamut, which has a nutty flavor, makes a great side dish.
Multi-Grain Bread Tip: Scan the ingredients of store-bought multi-grain bread, or you might be buying refined grains that don't pack the same nutritional punch that whole grains do. Be sure the first grain or flour listed says, "whole", such as whole wheat or whole rye. A 2013 European Journal of Nutrition study discovered that a higher intake of true whole grain bread can help quell inflammation.
A new study in the American Journal of Epidemiology supports eating whole grains. People who ate an average of 27g of fiber per day were 23 percent less likely to die of any cause than those who consumed only 15g a day. Fiber from cereal grains like whole wheat had more disease-fighting power than vegetables or fruit. These findings back up previous studies that show grains have unique health benefits.
