Whole grains contain an important source of fiber and B vitamins. They may also reduce the risk of heart disease. There are several whole grains available to choose from such as brown rice, bulgar, barley, whole rye, buckwheat, whole-wheat couscous, corn and quinoa. Find a whole grain that looks appealing to you and give it a try!
Unprocessed food has not been altered from its natural state. Processed foods contain “empty calories” (no essential nutrients). They are also where we consume most of our added sugars. Feed your body what it was designed to eat. Organic fruits and vegetables are a great example of unprocessed foods.
Tired of the usual? Mix it up! Try a fruit that you’ve never heard of before. Eating healthy can be fun!
