Whole Grains : 'Staff of Life' for human survival

Yes! you guessed it right. Whole grains are my all time favorite food. I love anything prepared from whole grains. So I am pretty excited about my first post on whole grains. I am going to start a series on whole grains. Here you will see me going through different whole grains ~ recipes , method of preparation , nutrition facts etc.
What are whole grains ? Whole grains also called as cereal grains retain the bran and germ as well as the endosperm , in contrast to refined grains, which retain only the endosperm. Whole grains are rich in fiber, B vitamins, antioxidants, trace minerals etc. So we are losing all this valuable nutrition in refined grains and flours. Apart from that there are lots of downsides on refined grains and flours. So I encourage all of you to include whole grains in your diets as much as possible.
