Whole Grains: Not Just for the Health Junkies

Health junkies have been preaching about whole grains for as long as we can remember; but only now are we starting to catch-on on to this wholesome, tasty alternative. Formerly seen as a dry, tasteless burden, whole grains have now gone mainstream, being regarded as a delicious pleasure that adds a distinctive, nutty flavour and an appealing texture to any dish. Using whole grains is not limited to just bread and other baked goods, but it can also be used in salads, soups, side dishes, entrées, and more.

It’s all about the way you cook it

You see, it really is all a matter of learning the proper prep and cooking techniques (and a few jazzy tricks) to create a grain-rich menu that not only tastes amazing, but is actually pretty good for you too! Whole grains are rich in carbohydrates (which is the body’s main fuel supply) and they also provide a healthy boost of vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants and more. Eating at least three servings of whole grain foods per day can lower your cholesterol levels and reduce your risks of heart disease, heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and obesity. Yep, we were bowled over too! Very few foods offer such diverse benefits like whole grain can.
