In this episode of Ask a Nutritionist, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Megan Holdaway answers the question, "How do I incorporate whole grains into my meals?”

All grains are not created equal. As Megan explains, whole grains that are unprocessed or minimally processed are highly nutritious and should not be considered the same as highly refined carbohydrates, such as cookies, cakes and many snack foods readily available. An important part of a healthy diet, Megan provides tips on how to incorporate whole grains into meals. 

With so many options to choose from, Megan recommends narrowing down your options and begin by making simple swaps, such as whole oats for breakfast instead of cereal, and building consumption of whole grains part of daily eating habits. She provides additional tips on how to incorporate whole grains into your everyday routine, laying a strong foundation for healthy eating.
