WHOLE GRAIN CONSUMPTION TIPS

We know whole grains are healthier than refined products, but it can be hard to make changes in our diets. Follow these tips and you'll be consuming more whole-grains in no time:

TIP #1 - READ THE LABEL. Multi grain or 100% wheat does not mean "whole grain." Check the ingredient list and choose foods that have the first ingredient listed as buckwheat, bulgur, millet, oatmeal, guinoa, rolled oats, or barley.
TIP#2 - MAKE THE SWITCH Many of the foods you eat probably have whole grain counterparts. Instead of pancakes or bagels made with white flour; try the "whole wheat kind." For lunch, try a sandwich made on a hearty whole wheat roll. And whole grain crackers taste great with your favorite dip or salsa.

Small changes go a long way toward a healthier lifestyle.
Happy Shopping!
