Simple Tips for Eating More Whole Grains Each Day

Sources of Whole Grains

Adding whole grain foods to your diet doesn´t have to be a challenge.

Choose whole grain cereal, 100% whole wheat toast, English muffins, bagels, or oatmeal as part of a healthy breakfast. When you have a bit more time, bake some muffins with whole wheat flour in place of white flour, or prepare buckwheat pancakes for the family.

Add some variation to your sandwich by trying whole grain breads, buns, rolls, wraps, or pita pockets. Visit the Pepperidge Farm website to see a list of whole grain breads, or try a tabbouleh salad, made with bulgur, or choose a soup with whole grains, like brown rice, or barley.

The evening meal presents another great opportunity to substitute some nutrient-rich whole grains for refined grains. Choose whole wheat pasta, brown or wild rice, or stuffing made with whole grain bread as wholesome and delicious sides you can feel great about serving to your family!

Mix a handful of rolled oats into your yogurt to add delicious texture or choose low-fat popcorn or whole grain baked snack chips as more healthful options.
