Quote of the Day



Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day

The month of September is Whole Grains Month!

Eating whole grains is a healthy diet habit to adopt, although the low carbohydrate diets have made many of us fearful of them!

Whole grains contain the whole grain kernel like 100% whole wheat flours, cracked wheat, oatmeal, popcorn, whole grain cornmeal, brown rice, barley, rye, wild rice, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, amaranth and other whole grains.  They are full of fiber, iron, and B vitamins. Great choices! Learn to cook them all!
