31 Days - March 26: Put that white bread down!!

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Today, Spark tells us:

Swap whole
for white--
grains that is. White
flours, breads, rice and
pasta are highly
processed and low in
nutrients. Whole grain
varieties are packed
with nutrients, fiber and
staying power.

Okay, I'm going to resist the urge to say "no sh!t Sherlock." But just barely. I don't really think anyone who is serious about this healthy living stuff can possibly not know that white anything is good for you. I know I occasionally splurge on something in the "white" category, but honestly, in my house, whole grains are all you'll find. My son has never eaten anything besides whole wheat bread..he looks at white bread kind of funny..THANKFULLY!!

I know that sometimes the whole wheat pasta is a bit hard to take, but I've discovered Barilla plus, and it is just fine, even to this old Italian..

Have a Sparky...well, I guess since it's 11:08 pm, I'll have to say night!!

(so you might ask what this notorious early sleeper is still doing up at this late hour? Well, it was kind of a tough night with the little guy, I just did 25 minutes of good night yoga, and decided I just had to come down to record it..I'm out of control!!)

    I still have a hard time always sticking with whole grains, but I'm getting better! I buy wheat bread, but it's not "whole wheat". It would be so nice if grocery stores wouldn't charge an arm and a leg for whole wheat bread! Then I'd buy it all the time! Hope that you got a great night's sleep. Have a great Sunday!
