It can be tempting to overindulge in breads and pastas. But when enjoyed in moderation, grains are an extremely beneficial part of a healthy diet. These tips from the USDA will help to show you which grains are the most nutritious, which are the most fattening, and how much of each type to eat per day.
There are two different types of grains.
Refined grains are grains that have been milled and no longer contain bran or germ, removing things like fiber, iron and many B vitamins. Whole grains still contain these nutrients and are generally healthier for you.
At least half of your daily grains should be whole grains.
These include things like brown rice, oatmeal, quinoa, whole wheat breads and pastas, buckwheat and bulgur.
The daily recommended intake varies.
How much grain you should consume each day depends on things like your age, gender and level of physical activity. To determine your daily intake, visit this chart.
Some foods may look like whole grain, but aren’t.
If a food is labeled “multi-grain," “stone ground," or even “cracked wheat," that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily whole grain. Only purchase foods that are labeled “whole wheat” or “whole grain."

You can spend days wandering through the world's largest art museum. You probably don't have that kind of time, but it's still worth checking out this fantastic museum filled with classic works of art, like the Mona Lisa. Plan to spend at least half a day here — a whole day if you're an avid art fan.
This impressive building was originally built in 1163. It was made popular by writer Victor Hugo. The surge of popularity from the book inspired renovations to restore the cathedral. Admission is free, but if you'd like to get to the top, you have to pay a small price.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday season with all the warmth and splendor this time of year has to offer. Happy Holidays!
