Why Eat Whole Grains?

Nutritional science tells us that eating a variety of whole grains is basic to a healthy vegetarian diet.

That means that we should eat whole grains at almost every meal. Refined grains are OK in moderation, and most of us don't need to worry about eating too much carbs.

Speaking of carbs - everybody needs carbs in their diet. Only double or triple helpings of carbs, with lots of added fat, is likely to cause weight gai in sedentary people.

But carbohydrates as found in whole grain foods, and eaten in the recommended serving sizes, won't make you fat, and will give you sustained energy. Not to mention vitamins and minerals you won't get in other foods.

For diabetics worried about carb intake, cooked or sprouted whole grains like brown rice, quinoa, millet, amaranth, teff, buckwheat or barley digest much more slowly than whole grain flour, and you need smaller portions.

Refined flour and grains, such as white rice, or pasta are higher in carbohydrates, lower in protein, and digest more quickly than whole grains, making them not as beneficial for a diabetic diet.

For more info on carbohydrates, download the Free Savvy Vegetarian Nutrition Report, or read the SV review of 'Carbophobia, The Scary Truth About America's Low Carb Craze', by Dr. Michael Greger.
