Add some new and fresh ancient grains to your dinner menu with the help of Healthy Aperture and Hodgson Mill.

This post wraps up the first of a series of three Healthy Aperture Blogger Network campaigns sponsored by Hodgson Mill. 

 

January is all about new and fresh, so why not add a few new foods and flavors to your list of dinner ideas? Make way for some delicious dishes packed with fiber, vitamins & minerals and complex carbohydrates that your body will love from the inside out!

Introducing "new" ancient grains with unfamiliar flavors or textures doesn't have to be difficult - and it can also be delicious! While all types of grain foods have a place in a healthy diet, ancient grain blends like the ones used in these recipes often offer a chance to try out some new whole grains, as well.

Why is this important? Well whole grains retain all parts of the grain, which means you get the health benefits of the fiber-rich bran and nutritious germ layers of the grain that would otherwise be removed. Dietary fiber from whole grains, in particular, is beneficial for a host of reasons including improving blood cholesterol levels and lowering risk of heart disease, stroke, obesity and type 2 diabetes. In fact, studies show higher whole grain intake has been linked to reduced mortality, especially deaths due to cardiovascular disease. The Hodgson Mill ancient grain blends used in these recipes contain more than half of their grains as whole grains, making them the perfect way to combine great taste and good health.

We're excited for you to try Hodgson Mill's new ancient grain side dishes as a great substitute for your traditional sides OR as the base for a whole new dish all together. Enjoy!
