Working In Whole Grains

Working In Whole Grains

If you're like us, you've got big plans for eating better this year and there's no better place to start than with whole grains. Quinoa, brown rice, barley, and wheat berries are all packed with nutrients, better for you than their refined counterparts, and provide amazing texture and taste in Stefano's salads, curries, and granola bars.

Working whole grains into your diet doesn't have to be hard. You can start by substituting whole grains where you might have used a refined grain, like swapping brown rice in for white--or using quinoa instead.

Bake up this Gluten-Free Carrot Cake made with quinoa flour and see how fast it goes. Or beef up your salads with the addition of barley or wheat berries.

To get started, feature good-for-you grains in your dinner rotation with any of Stefano's delicious whole grain recipes. Happy, healthy eating everyone!
