Healthy Foods: (Pt 5)

Grains:

However, it is a mistake to lump all grains together. There are many different types of grains, and some of them are very healthy. Just keep in mind that they are still pretty high in carbs, so they are not recommended on a low carb diet.

1. Brown Rice

Rice is one of the oldest cereal grains, and is currently a staple food for more than half of people in the world. Brown (whole grain) rice is fairly nutritious, with a decent amount of fiber, vitamin B1 and magnesium.

2. Oats

Oats are incredibly healthy. They are loaded with nutrients, and also contain powerful fibers called beta-glucans, shown to have numerous benefits.

3. Quinoa

Quinoa has become incredibly popular among health conscious individuals in recent years. It is a tasty grain that is high in nutrients like fiber and magnesium. It is also an excellent source of plant-based protein.
