GRAINS AND BEANS
Since the early days of agriculture, cereals and grains have been an
essential part of the human diet. Wheat, oats and rice are high in fiber
and this fiber helps lower cholesterol levels. A diet full of cereals
and grains can help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity
and even cancer. People who introduce whole grains (brown rice, oats,
etc.) to their diets reduce the risk of heart disease by 25-36%. The
risk of type-2 diabetes drops by 21-27% and the risk of stroke drops
37%. As you can see, a whole grain diet is essential for human health.
sugar levels are a concern for many adults and oatmeal will serve to
stabilize blood sugar levels. This is because the oats encourage slow
digestion, and slow digestion equates to stable sugar levels. The
American Diabetes Association recommends a fiber intake of 20-35 grams
per day. One cup of oatmeal will provide about 4 grams of fiber.
conservation is an important facet of emergency preparedness and
cereals are the most economic source of energy available. This is why
they work so well for long-term food storage. When used as a staple and
in combination with other food groups, you can create an affordable food
storage collection that will keep the body warm and energized.
regard to vitamin content, whole cereals and grains are an important
source of vitamin B. This is an essential vitamin that supports hormone
and growth production, red blood cell formation and maintains a complete
and healthy nervous system. Grains and cereals are also a good source
of minerals, in particular phosphorous, zinc and calcium. Phosphorous is
a mineral found present in brain tissue. Fruits and vegetables do not
contain this mineral, so a diet rich in cereals and grains is essential
for well balanced nutrition.
