An Abstract on Ancient Grains

A summary post on ancient grains. Read now or pin for later. - Health Happens at Home

Ancient grains are awesome! I have learned so much, I hope you have too. Below are links to the blog posts on all twelve featured grains. 

A few takeaways...
Each grain is different. They have differing protein and fiber levels, different amounts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. You will get maximum benefits when you vary your grains. Mix things up. Branch out from just oats at breakfast and move beyond only quinoa for a salad or side. In my research, one source claimed the antioxidant content in ancient whole grains exceeded that of fruit and vegetables. Now, don't stop eating fruits and vegetables, aim for 5 - 9 servings (or more!) per day, but don't neglect the potential benefits of whole grains on your health. And don't get stuck in a rut, eat a variety!
