Excellent article on whole grains!
I love whole grains. Question - I did not see farina on your list or the whole grains A to Z guide is there a reason? Thank you for the great information.
Interesting article. This has been confusing to me.
nice to know.
I like millet
I cut out grains and lost my cravings and driving hunger. I've lost 35 lbs in 3 months by doing a modified Atkins-style food plan, relying mainly on protein. Whatever you do, DON'T believe studies without doing your own research and experimentation.
*grains not grians
Just some corrections,
1. At the end of the second paragraph, a possible five pounds lost annually or a possible 5 lb loss annually but not "a possible five pounds lose annually"
2. The first bullet point under adding whole grians to your diet, "steel-cut" not "steal-cut"
Is Jasmine Rice really a whole grain?
Also, I like the overnight oatmeal recipes better than the hot ones - plus you can take it to work to have a later breakfast. I use Califia Toasted Coconut Almond Milk which has very low calories, but is pretty tasty.
If you hate whole wheat spaghetti as I do, try whole wheat angel hair pasta. For some reason, it's quite tasty!
Read "Grain Brain" (Dr. Perlmutter) and see what you think about grains. I no longer trust "studies". Bias and profit motive skew the science. And society is the guinea pig.
I've been on Whole 30 since late Dec 2016, which eliminated grains. I feel so much better I doubt I will reintroduce them into my diet--possibly on rare occasions.
I am always looking for ways to add more whole grains to my diet and recipes that include bulgur wheat, barley and quinoa.
