The Mediteranean Diet: The Answer to Rising Healthcare Costs?

September 21, 2018

September is whole grain month, and we have a lot to celebrate!  Most people know whole grain as just a “good for you” food, but few know the health benefits of whole grain. 
 
Not only does whole grain provide a nutritious source of energy, it has shown to be cardioprotective, promote digestive regularity with its fiber content, and also shown to help manage weight!
 
If you’re interested in improving your overall health – including managing your weight – you might consider increasing the amount of whole grain in your diet.

 



 Check out this recent study that  found that people who ate a diet with whole grains, which also met the recommended daily level of fiber, lost close to an extra 100 calories per day compared with those who ate refined grains (like white bread and white rice) without much fiber.
