The nutrition challenge will consist of replacing half of your grains with whole grain options. Whole grain provides your body with better nutrition. Unlike refined processed grains, whole grains have not been stripped of their nutritional value. In essence there are several reason to make the switch.

Here are just a few

1. They are excessively starchy and high in gluten.
2. They are practically devoid of natural fiber.
3. There can be up to approximately 25 different chemicals that are added to refined grains and breads products.
4. Grains are fumigated.
5. Bleaching chemicals are used.
6. Artificial coloring and flavorings are used.
7. They are nutritionally imbalanced.

Finding alternative options is not that difficult. Use this guide to determine replacement options
