Grains

Written by amy on March 20th, 2013

Any whole grain is going to be a better pick than a refined grain so this list may be a bit like splitting hairs (or splitting grains as in this case). That being said, when looking at the nutrients commonly found in grains – fiber, magnesium, B-6, iron, and zinc, there are a few grains that far outshine the others. 

 Amy’s top picks:

      Quinoa

      Buckwheat Groats

      Bulgur

What would be at the bottom, you might ask?  Some of the grains that contain the least amount of nutrients, in decreasing order, are:  couscous, white rice, soba noodles, and corn grits.
