Fast Facts to Help You Learn More About Whole Grains

February 12, 2014 by

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."

3 Attractions to See During Your Paris Vacation

Paris, the capital of France, has been called many things from "The City of Love" to "The City of Lights". With so much to see and do, it's easy to see why Paris is such a popular travel destination. When planning your trip, make sure you put these three top attractions on your to-do list. 

Eiffel Tower
This iconic Paris landmark is a sight to see in person. You may have to pay to get to the top, but the views are worth it. Order tickets online to skip the long lines. Visit in the evening to see the tower illuminated by thousands of flickering lights.

The Louvre
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. 

Notre-Dame Cathedral
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.
