Here are seven easy tips to adding more whole grains to your diet, as suggested by the Whole Grains Council:

• Substitute half the white flour with whole wheat flour in your regular recipes for cookies, muffins, quick breads and pancakes

• Replace one third of the flour in a recipe with quick oats or old-fashioned oats

• Add half a cup of cooked bulgur, wild rice, or barley to bread stuffing

• Add half a cup of cooked wheat or rye berries, wild rice, brown rice, sorghum or barley to your favorite canned or home-made soup

• Use whole corn meal for corn cakes, corn breads and corn muffins

• Add three-quarters of a cup of uncooked oats fro each pound of ground beef or turkey when you make meatballs, burgers or meatloaf

• Stir a handful of rolled oats in your yogurt, for quick crunch with no cooking necessary
