You can lose weight on a diet high in grains!

Grains (carbohydrates) are NOT the reason people are overweight.  Yes, grains can be high in calories.  Yet they are also nutrient rich: vitamins, minerals, energy-sustaining carbs, protein and– fiber for cleansing.  They are  a complete food.  When you commit to eating whole grains daily, you feel full and satisfied.  Salads and “diet” foods often leave you wanting more. 

My grain of choice this week- MILLET.  In fact, I just made millet mashed potatoes.  Delicious!
