Whole grains are excellent for controlling weight and are considered a clean food. Naturally low in fat, whole grains are grains that have not been refined and provide exceptional levels of fiber, selenium and magnesium, according to the Mayo Clinic. Nutritional and delicious whole grain products include barley, brown rice, buckwheat, millet, oatmeal, whole-grain breads and pastas and wild rice. Many clean eaters choose sprouted grain breads for even more nutritional benefits.
4. Add More Fibre – Wholegrain
Choose Whole Grain
Most people already know to choose whole grain foods over their more processed white alternatives.
Whole grains are made up of the bran, germ, and endosperm. The more refined grain like white bread and white rice remove the bran and the germ. In doing so, it strips the food of fibre and nutrition. Keeping all 3 parts of the grain intact helps keep blood sugar levels under control, and provides your body with more fibre and nutrition.
