Grains really are one of the key staples of any diet, and any kitchen.
Whether it is the beauty and flavor of whole grains in a delicious dish like our Wild Rice-and-Chicken Bowl, or the nuttiness of oats in our Dried Cherry-and-Pecan Oatmeal, grains are filling, nutritious, and delicious. In terms of nutrition, whole grains are better than processed grains to the extent that they retain their outer layers, thereby keeping their antioxidant, vitamin, fiber, and mineral levels high. For innovative new ways to get grains on the table, consider recipes like Grain Salad with Grilled Shrimp and Sweet Peppers, or Whole Grain Marshmallow Crispy Bars.
If you want a filling and delicious breakfast bowl, entice your family and friends with Hearty Oats and Grains, that combines steel-cut oats, toasted walnuts, and a 7-grain blend. Think of grains as what makes these dishes protein-rich and fiber-dense, and tend towards whole-grain options wherever and whenever you can. From simple Whole Grain Cornsticks to filling Four Grain-and Vegetable Burritos, grains can take a dish from simple to smart with a few key additions. Dig in.
