Join us for our next "Chew on This" event where we will talk about whole grains and why we need carbs. Enjoy a sampling of a variety of whole grain dishes, too!

Did you know that boosting your daily intake of whole grains can have a beneficial effect on blood pressure and cholesterol levels? Whole grains are complex carbohydrates that offer more than just fiber including B vitamins, selenium, vitamin E, copper, iron, zinc, magnesium and antioxidants.

Chew on This

CHEW ON THIS...

(PHYSICAL) Did you know that chocolate is made from the seeds of Theobroma Cacao tree? Unlike milk chocolate, which has a high content of milk fat solids, dark chocolate has a higher percentage of cacao and contains less sugar. Health benefits are seen when consuming dark chocolate containing 70% cacao in small amounts, 1 oz per day. Sorry white chocolate fans, this sweet isn’t even really chocolate.
