Whole Grains are the Whole Package

These Natural Grains Pack a Nutritional Punch


  • I knew that whole grain products are better for you, but I was never really clear on why. This article explains a lot. Thank you! - 4/24/2010 2:09:53 AM
    My favorite high fiber breakfast - 1/2 cup one-minute oatmeal (just as much fiber as whole oatmeal), walnuts, almonds, raisins, dried cranberries, blueberries, two tablespoons of milled flax meal, cinnamon, non-fat yogurt, and just enough skim milk to thin the yogurt. I don't cook the oatmeal - it makes a great cold cereal. Probably a little high on calories, but I burn a few on my 14-mile bicycle commute to work. - 4/23/2010 1:27:30 PM
  • It is assuring to see the reports of research regarding whole grains and a decrease in of occurence of both diabetes and heart disease. I heard that rolled oats lose some nutritional value, but I like oatmeal. Unless I learn that it is SAD for you, then I guess that I will keep eating it! - 3/19/2010 10:03:46 PM
    Another great way to get whole grains in your diet is to bake your own bread. I hate cooking, but bake a loaf every week--it's easy (six ingredients, 20 minutes of active work), it's delicious (OMG, seriously, to die for), and it means I don't feel like I have to choke down whole wheat pasta (I've just given up pasta entirely, it can't compare!).

    Then, when I make sandwiches, I know exactly what's in the bread---including five cups of whole wheat flour. - 1/30/2010 6:16:07 PM

  • Enjoyed this article. A dietician recently adviced that if getting used to whole wheat pasta or rice was proving difficult to do it more gradually by mixing it in with regular pasta and slowly increasing the amount of one and decreasing the amount of the other. It's worth a try. - 12/19/2009 4:58:13 PM

    Why isn't corn a whole grain, if it's on the cob, canned, etc.? I read one place that it was, and another place that is wasn't. It - 9/26/2009 4:23:33 PM

  • Excellent article, thank you for explaining how they are helpful, and what the difference is. I'm definitely switching out everything I have left that's not whole grains. - 10/16/2008 1:56:08 PM
  • Thanks for the clarification! For label-reading and nutritional info. My first round with whole wheat pasta was not great (rotini tasted like cardboard), but I tried again (with thin spaghetti) and even my family ate it. Brown rice too. Yippee! - 9/4/2008 8:13:20 AM
  • Thanks for the information, now I just need to get my son to eat the whole wheat pasta. - 9/2/2008 2:10:31 PM
