Keeping whole grain Foods in your diet that are naturally low in fat, cholesterol, and saturated fat, have been thought to reduce the risk of heart disease and other cancers. Keeping your whole grain Foods as well as plant foods in your diet will help your heart, and reduce your risk of heart related illnesses. You would be surprised that so many of your cooking favorites can be easily swapped out without even tasting different. Get your whole grains in and learn new ways to incorporate them into your every day life. One of my favorite way to substitute whole grains is with whole grain flours for recipes that call for standard white flour. When the opportunity arises you can also add in additional dimensions to a recipe by adding particular designated flavor profiles. For Example Whole Grain Barley Flour has a mildly sweet, nut like flavor profile. Barley flour goes exceptionally well in baked goods and adds an infused dimension of nuts, without the nuts. You can find your whole grains in the bulk section of your grocery store, or go online to www.bobsredmill.com, which is a great resource if you are looking for an online option. Bob’s Red Mill has single portions as well as cases of various grains and more. I typically get the cost down by finding a couple friends that want a bag or two and we all share the cost and get the lowest pricing without breaking the wallet.
