Whole Grains

Details

We love whole grains year-round. What’s not to love?! They’re rich in:

  • Fiber
  • B vitamins like niacin, thiamin and folate
  • Essential minerals like iron, zinc and magnesium

They also have many health benefits. Whole grains can:

  • Lower your risk of heart disease
  • Lower your risk of stroke
  • Improve your digestion
  • Lower your risk of Type 2 diabetes
  • Reduce your risk of cancer
  • Reduce your risk of obesity

See? Lots of reasons to dig in. We’re especially excited there’s a whole month devoted to whole grains — September!

So, this month, work as many whole grains into your diet as possible. There are lots to choose from — oats, barley, rye, bulgur, wild rice — but our hearts are fond of the three grains that are big crops here in Kansas: corn, sorghum and wheat. Here’s some inspiration to get you going with grains this month.
