They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day! We have to agree, especially when it is filled with healthy and delicious whole grain pancakes!
Whole grains are an important part of our diet and provide a number of health benefits. Grains are packed full of nutrients, such as fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Eating whole grains may help with weight management, help reduce the risk of heart disease and help reduce blood cholesterol levels along with helping our digestive system.
When shopping for whole grains check the nutrition label for the word “whole” at the beginning of the list and the whole grain logo. Try swapping out white rice for brown and whole-grain bread in meatloaf. Keep ready to eat whole grain snacks, such as popcorn and cereals on hand. The ideas are endless to help get more whole grains in our diets!
Our group from the Clermont DD learned the importance of eating whole grains and how to make delicious whole grain pancakes! We started by mixing together a Better Baking Mix and used that to make our pancakes! They turned out delicious and were easy to make! This Better Baking Mix can also be used to make muffins, cookies, biscuits and pizza crusts! YUM!
