8 Foods You Need in Your Kitchen For a Healthier New Year

Despite well loved opinion, there’s no reason to give up carbs entirely if you’re trying to lose weight or improve your health this year. In fact, whole grains (like brown rice, quinoa, farro, oats, and barley) have been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and certain types of cancer. Eating more whole grains may even add years to your life.

Whole grains provide filling fiber plus beneficial antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Strive to get about three servings of whole grains per day.

How to use them: Delight in oats or other whole-grain cereals for a hearty breakfast. Add couscous, farro, quinoa, or other cooked whole grains to salads or side dishes. Bake with whole-grain flour whenever possible.
