Hone in on Whole Grains

Choosing whole wheat or whole grain breads over white is one of the easiest ways to stick to your “clean” diet during the holidays. Prepare traditional stuffing with stone-ground cornbread, whole wheat, or whole grain breads and be sure and load up on the vegetables. If you prefer rice stuffing, substitute brown or wild rice in place of white. For an interesting twist, try experimenting with different grains like quinoa, millet, or barley. This American version of the Middle Eastern tabbouleh uses bulgur and offers a unique and tasty alternative for standard stuffing.
