Cooking Grains and Adding Value to the Food You Cook

Cooking instructions are usually printed on prepackaged grains. But if you buy them in bulk, you're on your own to figure out cooking times and proportions of grain and water. We're well accustomed to eating wheat, corn, and oats, and eating more of the same might not sound very interesting.

You can also increase your fiber and nutrition intake and boost your number of grain servings when preparing foods or baking. Oat bran can be added to just about any hot or cold cereal, or to cake or muffin batter. Substitute whole-wheat flour for one third to half of the all-purpose flour in your favorite recipes.

It is therefore essential that we include a variety of grains in our daily diet in order to have a balanced nutrition.
