Health Benefits Of Whole Grain Food

Here are some amazing health benefits of whole grain food

PASTA

Why it’s good for you?

  1. It is a good source of complex carbohydrates, which releases energy to your body slowly throughout the day.
  2. Like other whole grain products, pasta is a good source of dietary fibre, which helps to reduce cholesterol.

Tip: Whole grain pasta is by far a superior choice to regular. It does have a slightly different texture and taste, which you may need to get used to, but it’s worth the effort! White pasta contains none of its original fibre and only simple sugars.

OATS

Why they’re good for you?

  1. They have lots of soluble fibre so they fill you up and help keep your colon healthy.
  2. They have a variety of minerals, phytonutrients and antioxidants that help protect your heart.

Tip: The less processed your oats, the better! Steel-cut oats are best, but they take longer to cook, about 20-30 minutes, depending on how chewy you like them. Alternatively, soak them in almond/soy milk overnight and enjoy them raw.

BROWN RICE

Why it’s good for you?

  1. It is high in manganese, which helps the body to synthesize fats.
  2. It is rich in antioxidants and fibre and helps to stabilize blood sugar levels.

TIP: As good as brown rice and other whole grain rice is for you, white rice, which has had all its nutrients removed is not. When you’re choosing rice, be sure that it’s a whole grain!

QUINOA

Why it’s good for you?

  1. It is very high in protein and contains all of the 9 essential amino acids.
  2. 2. It’s packed with vitamins & minerals. It’s high in iron and loaded with magnesium, calcium, fibre, manganese, folate (vitamin B9), vitamin B6 and phosphorous.

Tip: Quinoa is NOT ACTUALLY a grain – it’s a seed! Rinse it well before using to get rid of saponins that can give it a bitter flavour.
