Monday's Healthy Tip

I can't wait for my Thanksgiving feast this week. Last week I talked about the food pyramid, and I know how hard it is to eat healthy in November and December.

The first part of the pyramid is Grains:

Any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, barley or another cereal grain is a grain product. Bread, pasta, oatmeal, breakfast cereals, tortillas, and grits are examples of grain products.

Grains are divided into 2 subgroups, whole grains and refined grains.

Some examples of Whole grains would be oatmeal, brown rice and whole wheat products. <----Healthy!!!

Some examples of Refined grains would be white bread, pasta, corn tortillas and white rice. <---- NOT Healthy!!

My latest addiction are brown rice chips from Costco- I am addicted!! Enjoy!
