3/. Whole Grain Foods
Do you want carbohydrates more than any other type of food? You can increase your intake of fiber and whole grains by avoiding white bread. Say no to white bread, white rice, white pasta, and even white potatoes. These foods tend to be more elaborate and lower in fiber and healthy nutrients than whole grains.
Instead, add sweet potatoes to your diet. Go to whole grain bread, whole-wheat pasta, and wild rice. If you like basmati rice, try it with whole wheat. Why not also try whole-wheat couscous. Not everyone wants sharp flavors and different textures of whole-grain foods, but there are ways to make the transition easier. If your family has trouble adapting to whole grain pasta or rice, cook half of the entire grain with your regular choice until you get used to the difference between the two.
