Eat Whole Grains!

Be it bread, rice or noodles, natural is best. The less processed your food is and the more whole grains it contains, the longer and faster you will stay full.

When prepared well with less fat or sugar, whole grains, fruits and vegetables offer you lower-calorie meal choices at any time of the day. Rich in antioxidants, they give you more goodness in a bite than a higher-calorie meal.

Love whole grains? Don't fret about it being limited to bread and rice. Do you know that whole grains now come in kway teow, noodles, man tou and biscuits? Look out for this symbol the next time you shop at the supermarket. Who says being healthy can't be fun and easy?
