4 Healthy Whole Grain Foods That You Should Purchase Today

Grains are the staple food in the majority of households all across the world.

 

The three parts of grains are Bran (The Outer layer), Β Germ (The seeds embryo) & Endosperm ( The Germ’s food supply).

 

Now, Whole grains are simple grains which mean they have all three in them. Whole grains tend to be very high in Magnesium, Manganese, Iron, Phosphorus & Selenium B Vitamins.

 

Making the smart choice and choosing whole grains over refined grains will decrease your chances of getting chronic diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes, Stroke and Cancer. Β Β 

 

Without further-ado here are 4 healthy whole-grain foods that you should purchase today!

 

Oats

Make sure you get yourself some Oats. Oats are one of the healthiest Whole grains you can eat, on the planet.

Not only are they jammed packed with Vitamins, Minerals and fibre but they’re also naturally Gluten free.

 

What you will also find with Oats is that they’re rich in antioxidants, which reduce the risk of certain types of cancers and lowers our blood pressure.

 

Be sure to pick up some Oats, this will help any of you who are not eating your breakfast in the mornings (Click Here)

 

The types of Oats to get are as followed.. Whole Oats, Steel-cut Oats, Oat Groats, Instant Rolled Oats & Scottish Oats.

KEYNOTE: Remember all of these above are Whole grain Oats anyway, this is purely if it doesn’t say Whole grain on the packet!

 

Any other type of Oats are either not Whole Oats such as Oat bran or like instant Oatmeal which is just more processed and more than likely will contain added sugar Β which is a straight no-no.

 

Brown Rice

It’s no different to Pasta (Click Here) Brown Rice will also be healthier than its counterpart, White Rice.

 

This is because Brown Rice Β is Whole Grain, which means it contains the entire grain including the Bran, Germ & Endosperm.

 

On the other hand the White Rice has been tampered with for a longer shelf life, which means they remove the Bran & Germ.. thus turns to trash!

Brown Rice is also naturally Gluten-free too. It also has health benefits such as…

Reduces Heart Disease

Reduces blood sugar levels

Reduces Inflammation

Reduces LDL Cholesterol (The Bad One)

 

Quinoa

Quinoa is a South American Grain that is a well known superfood!

 

This grain goes way back to the point that we can call it an ancient grain. Despite its age it is packed with more Protein, Minerals, Healthy fats and fibre than the really popular grains such as Whole Wheat, Oats etc.

 

Quinoa is also a great antioxidant which is great to get rid of harmful molecules AKA free radicals. These free radicals have been linked to chronic diseases like chronic Inflammation, Heart disease & Cancers.

 

Quinoa is among the few plants that provide you with complete proteins, which means it contains all nine essential amino acids. This makes it a great option for Vegans & Vegetarians.

 

One more thing, although people call Quinoa a grain.. it’s actually a Pseudo-grain (A seed from a shrub or bushy, non-grass plant that is used in much the same way as cereal grains)

 

Popcorn

Popcorn is one of the healthiest snacks you can eat.

 

It’s a special type of corn that of course pops under high heat. Corn kernels contain a tiny amount of water, which turns to steam when you heat it and then it causes the kernels to burst.

 

Most people don’t get that Popcorn is actually a Whole grain food. It’s high in important nutrients such as Manganese, Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Phosphorus & Vitamin B.

 

Popcorn is very high in fibre 100 grams (3.5 ounces) which provide 14.2 to 14.5 of fibre.

 

It’s best if you make it at home, as purchasing prepackaged microwave bags of popcorn can contain harmful chemicals.

 

The Elephant in the room is the Cinema varieties.. they are typically filled with Salt or Sugar which is bad for our health.

 

THAT’S IT!

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys. Please do let me know though…
