Add Whole Grains
Stripped of their bran and germ, refined grains lack essential nutrients, which is a reason to swap out the refined grains with whole grains when it comes to your snacks and sides. The whole grain farro is a great substitute for pasta, and quinoa can be used in place of rice.
If you just can't get on board with the taste of whole grains, experiment while baking by adding equal parts whole grain flour to regular white flour. Or try mixing white rice with brown in order to reap some whole grain benefits.
