Eat Whole Grains
General Mills recently commissioned a study to look at the consumption of whole grains. Consumers feel they are getting more whole grains than they really are. Sixty percent responded that they feel like they are getting enough whole grains, but 95 percent are not.
Currently the recommendation is for individuals to consume three servings of whole grains daily. There are many health benefits to consuming whole grains including a decrease risk of stroke, cardiovascular disease, obesity, metabolic syndrome, type 2 Diabetes, colorectal cancer and total mortality.
