Grabbing for Grains

This week’s, one of many food and nutrition communications publications that cross my desk, mentions that shoppers are confused about shopping for whole grains.
Two best indicators for whole grain foods are a whole grain “seal” on the front of the package and the listing of whole grains, ie, whole wheat, whole grain corn, brown rice, and others, at the top of the ingredient list.

Here’s a short cut for getting at least three whole grain servings each day. Choose a whole grain hot or cold cereal for breakfast. Choose whole wheat bread, pita, or roll for your lunch sandwich. And have brown rice, whole wheat pasta, whole wheat couscous, or another cooked whole grain at dinner. How easy is that?!
