Best Food Forward – Fresh Baked!

March 29th, 2013 No Comments Tags: , , , ,

The smell of freshly baked muffins, breads and cookies wafting through the grocery store can be tantalizing. Don’t let your nose guide your purchases! Many baked goods are high in fat, sugar and calories. Look for healthier choices, such as whole grain breads. They have more vitamins, minerals, fibre and other nutrients that are good for your health. People who eat a diet rich in whole grains are more likely to have a healthy heart. To be sure bread is whole grain, check the ingredient list for the words “whole grain” in front of each grain’s name. If whole grains are the main ingredients in a food, they will appear first in the ingredient list. Make at least half of your grain products whole grain each day.

Here’s hoping this Nutrition Month has been an enlightening one. Truly though, every month is really nutrition month!
