Week 4: Switch to Whole Grains

Begin to switch out the white flour and white grain products in your kitchen for whole grain foods. Whole grains provide more fiber and nutrients, and have less impact on your blood glucose. Look for products that list whole grain flour, rather than enriched flour as one of the first ingredients.


  • Add whole grain pasta or brown rice to a favorite dish or in combination with vegetables or beans.

  • Purchase a new whole grain food that you haven't used before and try it as a replacement for rice, pasta, or potatoes. Some suggestions:quinoa, kasha, or bulgur.
