Whole grains a priority for you?

A new Harvard Medical School study found in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition says a diet rich in whole grain foods can reduce your risk of heart disease, reports Third Age.  The problem is people don't seem to know the good sources of whole grain.   See the full report, including results of a survey from Pepperidge Farms.

One whole grain you can and should add to your family's diet is ground flax seed.  It's a valuable source of nutrients, and is mildly laxative as well. Sprinkle on cold or hot cereal and add to baked goods.   It has a nutty taste and very acceptable texture. 

For a whole grain treat that your family won't realize is health food, try creamy Rice Pudding, made with brown rice.
