Better Than Ever Side Dishes

Many people ask about where my inspiration for the blogs comes from.  My answer is usually friends, clients, meetings; basically every day life for me.  Recently I have been doing an enormous amount of health counseling which is probably one of my most favorite things about my job.  The reason I mention this is because one of the issues that I walk away with at the end of the day after spending time with so many people is that we are all lacking in some of the same ways.  Whole grains!  They are more important than you realize folks and I am wondering if the fear of carbohydrates is behind why people are neglecting to eat the ever so important complex carbohydrate.  Listen, it is OK to ignore carbs for a little while (tomorrow I will blog about a diet some of you might like to try and it avoids carbs…but not for long) but most of the time you have to remember to eat your whole grains.  Ignoring whole  grains will certainly negatively affect cholesterol, diabetes and a whole slew of other issues.  Remember, I am not asking you to eat a large quantity of carbohydrates, but a little bit at every meal will go so far.

There are far too many of us that turn to potatoes and white rice as part of their meals.  This is a reminder from me to you, there is a plethora of side dishes that are simply incredible.  I would like to share these with you since they are interesting, healthy, unique and might I add anti-aging.

  • Brown rice
  • Jasmine brown rice
  • Basmati rice
  • Quinoa, red quinoa, black quinoa
  • Barley
  • Wheat bulgur
  • Whole wheat cous cous
  • Ferro
  • Steel cut oats
  • Sweet potatoes

Whole grains are extraordinary and ever so healthful.  Listen, it’s not all about potatoes and white rice.  In fact, I would venture to say they ain’t so healthful.  Take a look at the above list and keep it in mind when thinking of side dishes, and by the way, from the entire list quinoa and sweet potatoes are numero uno when it comes to anti-aging foods.  Please try to add something from the above list to each one of your meals.  So dump the wrinkle cream and splurge on quinoa.
