Whole grains have beneficial nutrients that refined grains are missing, like magnesium (which helps the body produce energy) and fiber, which helps you feel fuller longer. Trade your refined grains for whole grains by eating oatmeal for breakfast, swapping out white pasta, flour and bread for whole-wheat versions, or trying a new-to-you whole grain, like quinoa, freekah or barley.

Recipe to Try: Spaghetti Genovese
