my 5 favorite whole-grain tips

Whole grains are one of nature’s simplest ways of delivering all kinds of good things, from protein to fiber to vitamins and minerals. They’re inexpensive, easy to cook, and great to have on hand. And really, there’s no need to relearn the way you cook or eat. Adding whole grains to your meals could not be easier.

  1. Add 1/2 cup of cooked wild rice, brown rice, or barley to your favorite canned or homemade soup or stew.
  2. Next time you make meatballs, burgers, or meatloaf, mix 3/4 cup of ground bran cereal or flaxseed meal or wheat germ into each pound of ground chicken or turkey.
  3. Whenever a baking recipe calls for all-purpose flour, substitute half of it with whole-wheat flour.
  4. Make whole-wheat pretzels or whole-grain crackers the family snack food and serve with hummus, salsa, or bean dip.
  5. Not many people think of popcorn as a whole grain, but, if prepared healthfully on the stovetop using whole popcorn kernels, it can be one of the healthiest snacks to eat. It’s a good source of fiber, has all the benefits of any other whole grain, and is quite filling—all good things for a snack! The best part is that it’s low in calories. I’ll season it with a little grated cheese and sprinkle with salt or spices, like cayenne pepper or cinnamon.

"My kids were drinking way too much juice and sweetened drinks. They found water ‘boring.’ Now I freeze fruit juice in ice cube trays and add a few ‘juice cubes’ to seltzer or water for a little sweetness. They love the taste and all the different-colored cubes."
