Any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, barley or another cereal grain is a grain product, reported "Kazakh-Zerno" IA with reference to the "Houma Today".

Bread, pasta, oatmeal, breakfast cereals, tortillas and grits are examples. Grains are divided into two subgroups: whole grains and refined grains. Whole grains contain the entire grain kernel — the bran, germ and endosperm. Eating grains, especially whole grains, provides health benefits. 

People who eat whole grains as part of a healthy diet have a reduced risk of some chronic disease, according to the LSU AgCenter and USDA Center for Nutrition.

To eat more whole grains, substitute a whole-grain product for a refined product, such as eating whole wheat bread instead of white bread, or brown rice instead of white rice. 

It’s important to substitute the whole grain product for the refined one, rather than adding the whole-grain product.

Here is a list of tips that can help you consume more whole grains:

- Popcorn, a whole grain, can be a healthy snack with little or no added salt and butter. 

- Freeze leftover cooked brown rice, bulgur or barley. Heat and serve it later as a quick side dish.

- Use whole grains in mixed dishes, such as barley in vegetable soup or stews, and bulgur wheat in casseroles or stir-fries. Then, you don’t need that added dinner roll.

- Try brown rice or whole wheat pasta. Try brown rice stuffing in baked green peppers or tomatoes, and whole wheat macaroni in macaroni and cheese.

- Experiment by substituting whole wheat or oat flour or other flour- based recipes. They may need a bit more leavening.
