The Whole Truth on Whole Grains

We appreciate eating foods in their most natural state. So when it comes to adding whole grains into your daily diet, we vote yes! Unprocessed, whole grains are closest to the form in which they were naturally grown, as opposed to highly processed refined grains that are stripped of fiber and antioxidants as well as vitamins and minerals.

In addition to great nutritional benefits, there have been several health claims linked to whole grains and the battles against heart disease, diabetes and obesity. The powerful research surrounding whole grains is reason enough to make the switch to this wholesome alternative.

But if you are still looking for a reason to add this power food to your diet, then consider this: whole grains just taste better, and are a quick way to add texture and flavor to just about any dish.

Whole grains come in many forms, so there are many ways to get your daily dose of grains. From hot and cold cereals to pastas and tortillas, you can easily find a way to enjoy the simplicity that whole grains have to offer.

Simple Truth believes in making small, easy changes to help create a simpler, better life. There are plenty of whole grain options from Simple Truth that are easy to find throughout the store, with bright and easy-to-recognize packaging.

And now with Simple Truth Organic Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah), you are getting the highest-quality ingredients available. Quinoa is an easy-to-cook whole grain served for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This super grain has the highest protein content when compared to other whole grains. And its short cooking time makes it a great choice when you’re searching for meal options that can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. Don’t forget that when cooking with whole grains (especially with the smaller ones) it’s always important to check the texture and fluff before serving. Delicious!

Simple Tip: Keep your whole grains in an airtight container to preserve freshness.
