Whole Grains Equal Notes of Good Health
In tune with the heading above - a weight loss plan that is missing whole grain goodness equals a plan with several sour notes. Our bodies not only love 'the staff of life' - they embrace it!
Think about this...
Let's Put Camping Fuel in Our Gas Tank
Why not? Our vehicle will certainly run on such. In fact, when my husband and myself ran out of gas some years back and there weren't any refueling stations for several miles down the road - we were fortunate enough to have some fuel leftover from the camping trip we were on which we used to get us from Point A to B. Because we were trapped in a very desolate area, that camping fuel may have saved our lives.
While an emergency situation calls for drastic action - camping fuel isn't intended to be used at every refueling. The car can recover from bad fuel - at times, having need to have the fuel lines cleaned out - but more often than not, a low grade fuel won't destroy the engine.
Our body is much the same. While a wad of cheesecake here and a lump of sugar in our beverage there won't destroy the engine of the body (heart), it would prefer a slice of whole grain bread, a serving of red, white, purple, brown or black beans.
So the next time that you reach for a food selection - we hope that you'll keep this advice in mind and reach for the healthiest foods possible.
Dietary Fiber in Grain Selections
Note on our data nutrition chart that the food selections which are of the whole grain variety contain more dietary fiber than those that's aren't.
Strive to make at least one-half of all the grains you consumed throughout the day on your meal plate as well as during snack times to be in the form of whole grain goodness.
