Learn to love whole grains—gradually
Learn to love whole grains—gradually. You may know the benefits of eating whole-grain products—more vitamins, minerals and fiber—but find it too hard to make the switch from your old refined favorites. Phase in a whole grain by mixing it half-and-half with a refined one—for example, a blend of whole-wheat and regular pasta, or brown and white rice. Gradually increase the proportions until your palate—and digestive tract—adjust.
