Tip for Today:
When you eat whole grains (oatmeal, quinoa, whole grain pasta, brown rice, whole wheat bread, whole grain cereal, air popped popcorn) you are less likely to overeat. Why? They fill you up quicker than refined grains (white bread, regular pasta, non-whole grain cereal, white rice). Eat the whole grains with some protein, veggies, fruit and lowfat dairy at your meal. Also, combining the whole grains with some protein and a small amount of fat can keep your blood sugars more under control, thereby avoiding those spikes and drops.
