Betty Crocker Whole Grains:
Easy Everyday Recipes

from the Betty Crocker Editors


Whole grains have sustained people for centuries, but increasingly they have received extra support for their health benefits.

"Each grain varies a bit in its exact nutrient composition," report the Betty Crocker Editors, "but all provide essential vitamins and minerals, like vitamin B-6, iron, zinc and magnesium, as well as healthy fats and phytonutrients. In addition, whole grains are one of the richest sources of antioxidants and phytonutrients, natural plant compounds that work together to keep you healthy."

Betty Crocker Whole Grains: Easy Everyday Recipes is a wonderful introduction to whole grains and will have great appeal to cooks who are just discovering how interesting they are, and to whole grain veterans in search of more great grain recipes.

By now we're well aware of the health benefits of eating whole grains, such as reducing the risk of cancer and heart disease or promoting a healthy weight or possibly even playing a role in managing diabetes. Yet we tend to avoid such unfamiliar, but delicious and easy-cooking grains such as quinoa, kasha, bulgur or wheat berries, fearing they might not taste good. Those who embrace whole grains enjoy them as part of their daily fare. Low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, they know that spelt, brown and wild rice, buckwheat, rolled barley and whole-grain cornmeal are as delicious as they are healthy.

From breakfast to dessert with tasty detours into breads, and snacks, here is good healthy food you can't get enough of. Betty Crocker Whole Grains not only demystifies, but defines whole grains and their benefits. The special features of this new cookbook include:

Featuring 50 stunning color photos, Betty Crocker Whole Grains demonstrates just how easy it is to incorporate whole grains into any diet, such as: Whole Wheat Waffles with Honey-Peanut Butter Drizzle, Mixed-Berry Coffee Cake, Two-Seeded Checkerboard Dinner Rolls, Blue Commeal Muffins, Take-Along Oatmeal Bars, Caramel Corn Crunch, Broiled Dijon Burgers, Chicken and Veggies with Bulgur, Spanish Rice Bake, Canadian Bacon-Whole Wheat Pizza, Lentil Stew with Combread Dumplings, Red Pepper Polenta with Gorgonzola, Chocolate Fudge-Raspberry Crisp, Cranberry-Orange Oatmeal Cookies, and a favorite in the Betty Crocker Kitchens, Three Grain Salad.

Whole grains make an important contribution to our health. Now Betty Crocker Whole Grains allows us to embrace the variety and goodness of these splendid foods every day.
