Whole Grain Sampling Day takes place on the first Wednesday of April each year, and is a nationwide initiative to introduce people like you and me to the health benefits and great taste of whole grains. As a Whole Grain Ambassador, I’m inviting you to not only “toast” whole grains with me tomorrow (April 3), but I also have a healthy giveaway for you!
Our family has been focusing on healthier eating, including increasing our daily intake of whole grains. Some of the health benefits that have personally motivated us include weight loss and reducing body fat, reduced risk of asthma and type 2 diabetes and a lower risk of heart disease. Even besides the health benefits, we have been enjoying the taste and I make it my goal to work them into our weekly menu plan.
In honor of Whole Grain Sampling Day, you are invited to participate in a virtual “whole grain toast”, TOMORROW April 3rd at Noon EST.
Celebrate with your own fun version of a “toast” to whole grains! How would you toast whole grains? Maybe you’ll “clink” together two pieces of whole grain toasted bread or two snack chips. Or, maybe, you’ll fill a champagne flutes full of whole grain rice (like Goose Valley Wild Rice).
Or, you can do like us and toast wine glasses full Bob’s Red Mill Muesli!
Whatever way you “toast” whole grains, we’d love for you to post your toast! Share a picture on Instagram or Facebook or a video on YouTube or Vine. Be sure to share what you do on Twitter too. Be sure to tag your whole grain “toast” with the hashtag #SampleWholeGrains so everyone can see it!
