Common Types of Grains
Grains are an essential element in a healthy diet, and eating high-fiber whole grains may help reduce your risk of heart disease, ward off diabetes, and control cholesterol.
It’s easy to put together a quick, well-balanced meal when your pantry is stocked with a few healthy staples.
- Extra virgin olive oil. Aromatic olive oil is high in healthy monounsaturated fat and antioxidants. Extra virgin olive oil maintains many nutrients and has a stronger flavor because it’s processed without high heat, bleach or chemicals.
- Vinegar. A small amount of vinegar can add significant flavor to a variety of dishes with very few calories and little to no fat.
- Canned tuna. Canned tuna is convenient, inexpensive, and healthy—it’s high in protein and vitamin D and can be a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Look for tuna packaged in water to avoid extra calories and fat.
