Food for Thought: Top Tip 4

4. Choose Whole Grains

Cindy explains that grains are just the seeds of cereal plants. The seeds have 3 parts; bran  (the fibre rich outer layer,) endosperm (the middle starchy layer,) and the germ (the nutrient rich core.) To get all the benefit, just eat all of the grain. You don’t have to go all whole food and healthy, but you can substitute some wholegrain healthy alternatives. Cindy suggests making your own popcorn for a  healthy snack. Or if you prefer, chuck some chia seeds into your cereal or into other dishes, or try out some LSA (Linseed, Sunflower Seeds and Almonds,) in your recipes.
