Default Whole Wheat Hoax

Me and Linden were talking about whole wheat flour, so I thought I would post this for discussion.

Is whole wheat flour healthy?

The vast majority of shoppers — including those with a high “health IQ” — think so. And that’s just what food marketers want you to believe. But the truth may knock you for a loop.

You see, many “whole wheat” products are just as bad as white bread — and some are even worse.

Keep reading and I’ll blow away the smoke that may be clouding your eyes so you can “hokum-proof” your whole grain purchases and bring home the real McCoy.
Quote:
Why not go “whole” hog?

While you’re tracking down the superior health benefits of whole grains in the bread aisle, why not go “whole grain” throughout the entire store?

You can easily incorporate whole grains at any (or every) meal to improve your blood sugar … control your weight … and improve your cardiovascular health.

Enjoy old favorites such as oats, barley, and brown rice often — and don’t hesitate to experiment with adventurous “new” whole-grain foods. For starters:

Quinoa is a complete protein.
Teff is gluten-free, and high in fiber.
Amaranth is high in iron.
Farro has twice the fiber and protein of whole wheat.
Millet is high in manganese, magnesium and phosphorus.

They all cook up in water just like oatmeal, and each one offers unique nutritional benefits. The variety of whole grains is so great that you may need a lifetime to get to know them all. But my guess is that you’ll love them at first bite.

For convenience, cook up a large batch of whole grains and freeze portions individually for later use.

How do these wonderful whole grains fit into your meals? Wonderfully! You’ll find a wealth of free whole grain recipes at our My Healing Kitchen website.

It's certainly very interesting.

Yet another eye opener.


The quinoa sounds good, just bought some today after Steve mentioned it.


Going to look for some recipes so it tastes good.

Will report back with them, might be interesting for some.

Although he(?) ("Jim Healthy"? Really?) comes across as yet another barking moonbat with "informative" "articles" and convenient e-shop only a click away...

I guess there's something in there for some folks. Er...

i love quinoa. Some thoughts to keep in mind with it. Quinoa is caloricly dense. A little goes a long way. On its own, it is kinda bland. I usually cook it with chicken or beef stock or broth to add flavor. Cooked with water it also makes a good oatmeal substitute, though remember my first point.

I love the Quinoa as well.

I personally mix it with some cream cheese and veggies after it is cooked, absolutely delicious. Also very nice to mix with brown rice.
