Are you eating enough whole grains? Chances are you’re not. The recommended amount is at least 3 ounces per day. Hi viewers and welcome back to another Bestie video! Whole grains are an essential part of a healthy diet. They are very nutritious because they contain the fiber-rich outer bran layer, the nutrient-packed germ and the starchy endosperm.
Oats: Oats are rich in antioxidants that are a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. They are also high in a type of soluble fiber that lowers bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol. They may also reduce the risk of some types of cancers.
Amaranth: Gluten-free amaranth is considered a complete protein. This is because it contains all of the essential amino acids in proportions that humans need, including lysine which other grains tend to lack. Additionally, it’s a good source of minerals such as iron and selenium.
Sorghum: Largely grown in the United States for livestock feed, sorghum has recently been embraced for its versatility by the gluten-free community. Cooked sorghum has a chewy texture similar to Israeli couscous.
Ezekiel bread: Ezekiel bread is made from refined wheat or pulverized whole wheat, millet, barley, spelt, soybeans, and lentils, all of which are sprouted. The sprouting process is fairly simple.
Spelt: Spelt is a type of wheat that’s higher in protein than other types, providing 10.7 grams per cup. You can easily sub spelt flour for wheat flour in recipes.Bestie
