Whether it is bread, flour for baking, rice, or pasta every grain you choose should be WHOLE GRAIN.  So, unless it says 100% whole grain or you can see the ingredients, assume it is ‘White.’  What’s the difference?  “White’ means the outer grain covering has been stripped, and along with it, nutrients and fibre have been removed.

Good Choices Are:
  • sprouted grains bread
  • brown rice
  • wild rice
  • quinoa
  • kamut
  • bulger wheat
  • flax

Other forms of complex carbohydrates are organic potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams and other root veggies.  As long as they are organic, eat them with the skins, as these contain valuable nutrients!
