The fiber and nutrients associated with whole grains make them an essential part of a healthy diet, but it’s often difficult to work them into your everyday cooking. This collection of recipes uses whole grains—from brown rice to whole-wheat pasta—in a delicious variety of ways. Sometimes a dish can revolve around the grain, as in this Whole-Wheat Pasta with Edamame, Arugula, and Herbs. Other times we suggest a small substitution, like whole-wheat breadcrumbs in place of regular white breadcrumbs. Every little bit counts towards your goal of eating more whole foods.
