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!
