After you read this post, and the article I link to, you may want to rewrite your grocery shopping list. We have read for years that it’s important to get a healthy amount of whole grains in our daily diet. It’s simply better than loading up on products with refined flour. After all, whole grains contain all parts of a seed.

As Jeannine Stein reports in the Los Angeles Times, food products labeled as whole grain may actually contain sugar, salt, saturated and trans fats.

Stein’s article may prompt you to polish off those reading glasses, while at the market, and focus on what is added to your favorite whole grain product.  If you’re wondering which whole grain foods to choose,  you can’t go wrong with bulgar, brown rice and whole oats. Yum!
