How to Cook Whole Grains

Fiber-rich whole grains contain all three parts of the natural grain: the bran, the germ and the endosperm. Because nothing is removed during processing, whole-grain foods contain more natural fiber, vitamins and minerals than their refined grain versions. Because of their nutrition content, they should be a regular part of a heart healthy diet.
