Engraining the benefits of Whole Grains

By now it should be engrained into your brain, whole grains are far superior to refined grains and you should incorporate them into your diet as you leave the refined ones behind. While we all know that whole grains are better for us, there are times when we smile, nod and agree instead of finding the reasons why they are actually better (trust me we've all been there!). This week a great article in the Washington Post, Whole grain and the 2010 Dietary Guidelines, was published and it simplifies and organizes all of the need-to-know information on whole grains: how much and which ones you should bring into your diet, as well as answering some of our questions on why refined grains should really get the boot.

Eat well!
