This week’s challenge is to try a new whole grain. Whole grains provide fiber, vitamins and minerals that can help us feel fuller longer and reduce our risk for chronic disease.
Easy way to accomplish:
Find a whole grain you’ve never tried before, like quinoa, farro, bulgur, wild rice or forbidden rice and prepare according to package directions. You can find some of these in the bulk section of our natural & organic department, which is great for trying new grains since you can just grab a small amount if you like. You can also try including your new whole grain in a recipe, like one of these:
- Orange Quinoa Salad
- Quinoa Pizza Bites
- Farro Salad with Roasted Corn and Tomatoes
- Mushroom Farro Casserole
Easier way to accomplish:
Try a frozen steamable whole grain or blend that includes a new whole grain. Or grab a ready-to-eat option, like Kitchen & Love Quick Meals, which you can enjoy hot or cold.
