Take the Whole Grain Awareness Challenge *Giveaway*

This giveaway is now closed.  Congrats to the Winner, Nad (#28)!

Several years ago, I decided to omit all white, processed foods from my diet.  I replaced white bread, flour tortillas, and saltine crackers with their whole grain alternatives. According to The Journal of Nutrition, “higher intakes of cereal fiber, particularly from whole-grain sources, are associated with lower total percent body fat and percent trunk fat mass in older adults.”  Consuming a diet rich in whole grains can also help maintain a healthy heart and reduce the risk for diabetes and certain types of cancer.  Whole grains are also a good source of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.  Here are 5 ways whole grains can benefit you:

  1. Heart health. Heart-healthy diets rich in whole grain foods can reduce the risk of heart disease.
  2. Reduce cancer risk. Low fat diets rich in fiber-containing grain products, fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer, particularly of the stomach and colon.
  3. Manage diabetes. The American Diabetes Association recommends whole grain as part of a diabetic diet.
  4. Keep you regular. Fiber from whole grains promotes regularity and keeps the intestines working smoothly to help maintain good digestive health.
  5. Weight management. A growing body of evidence supports that people who eat more whole grain tend to have healthier body weights and gain less weight over time than those who don’t.

So how do you incorporate foods rich in whole grains into your diet?  One of the things I do is try to choose whole grain cereals.  General Mills is one brand that guarantees at least 8 grams of whole grains per cereal serving and many deliver 16 grams or more (just look for the white check on the top of the box). Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios are favorites in our household because they’re also low in sugar.

Are you consuming enough whole grains?  According to the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, only 1 in 10 Americans consume the minimum recommended amount.  If you would like to learn more about whole grains, whether or not you’re consuming the recommended amount, and how to incorporate them into your diet, just visit Whole Grain Nation.

To help you learn more about the benefits of whole grains, including how to incorporate them into your diet, I have a prize package to give away, courtesy of General Mills.

Win It! One of you will win the following “Grains of Goodness” package:

* 2 VIP coupons for Big G cereal products

* A breakfast chiller

* A large cereal mug

* A tote bag

To enter, simply list one way you incorporate whole grains into your diet.  Comments will close on March 10, 2010 at 11:59 PM PST.  One comment per person, please (unless you do the extra credit).

    grain breads, muffins, bagels and English muffins. Since we have bread at every meal this means we have at least 3 opportunities to enjoy whole grains.

    I have lost 68lbs since October 09. Including fiber in my diet was a big change. I was a “White” carbs girl…apparently way to many white carbs LOL. I now only eat “Brown” carbs which contain a ton more fiber! Brown Rice, Whole Wheat Pasta and I love the 45 calorie Sara Lee wheat bread! And if Im lacking in my days fiber intake I make sure I eat Fiber One yogurt or a Fiber One Cereal bar…they are delicious!

    Like you, I replaced white bread by bread that is 100% whole wheat or at least contains a fair amount of whole grains, like 12-grain or oat bread. Also, we love cheerios in our house hold, so that remains unchanged. I try to replace crackers and tortillas with whole grain varieties, but have found the pasta and rice the most challenging.
