It’s hard to get people to eat more fruits and vegetables. Some refuse to give up their favorite fatty foods or desserts but switching from white bread to whole wheat bread isn’t that big a step and it will yield impressive health benefits.

Research has shown the benefits of whole grains occur by simply switching two servings of refined flour foods with whole grain foods. Whole grain bread is the simplest switch and this switch is directly related to a reduced risk of death, and a lowered risk for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and colon cancer.

You should know:

  • Those who regularly eat whole grains are less likely to be overweight or obese.
  • The more whole grains you eat the higher your overall nutrient intake.
  • Only 8% of adults and 1% of children meet the recommended whole grain intake
  • each day.
  • Over the last 10 years our whole grain intake has increased only by a scant 1/2-ounce serving a day.
  • Good news – according to a recent survey 57% of shoppers are now looking for whole grain foods to add to their meals.
