March 16, 2011 Health Tip Of The Day

Eat Whole Grains

Foods made from grains should be the base of a nutritious diet. Grains include bread, rice, pasta, and oats. Whole grain foods, supply vitamin E and B, vitamins such as folic acid, as well as minerals like magnesium, iron, and zinc. Whole grains (like whole wheat) are rich in fiber and higher in other important nutrients. In fact, eating plenty of whole grain breads, bran cereals, and other whole-grain foods can easily provide half of your fiber needs for an entire day. When choosing grains, look for the words "whole grain" or "whole wheat" to make sure the product is made from 100 percent whole-wheat flour. The aim should be to consume at least six servings of grain products per day. Choose frains that are rich in fiber, low in saturated fat and low in sodium.  

As Always, To Your Health!
