Whole grains have increased in popularity over the last few years, and for good reason. Whole grains are less refined than their quicker cooking, brighter white cousins. Grains become refined in the milling process, where the bran, which surrounds the grain is polished off. With the bran goes a lot of extra fiber and nutrients. By choosing to upgrade to whole grains, you can get the added fiber and nutrients back, keeping you fuller longer and getting the most out of your grains.
The easiest grain swap to make is switching from white rice to brown, but after a while, it’s time to mix it up and add new grains into the mix. There are a lot of whole grains to try and upgrade your healthy meals with.
