By Chuck Underwood @brandnewvegan

In this Podcast Episode, I explain what my “Back to Basics” Bootcamp is all about, why I’m doing it, and how to join me if you wish.

Show Notes

I mention Registered Dietician Brenda Davis and her Whole Grain hierarchy in this podcast.  

Here is her list of Whole Grains in order of MOST to LEAST nutritious.  More info can be found on her website listed above. 

  1. Intact: quinoa, brown rice, wheat berries, buckwheat, barley 
  2. Cut: bulgar, steel cut oats
  3. Rolled: old-fashioned rolled oats
  4. Shredded: shredded wheat, mini shredded wheat
  5. Ground: whole wheat flour, brown rice flour, spelt flour, rye flour. 
  6. Flaked: bran flakes
  7. Puffed: puffed rice, puffed wheat, brown rice cakes.

There’s a common misconception that brown rice cakes are the healthiest foods. In fact, these puffed cakes are so processed that so much of the nutrients in the brown rice kernel have been stripped away. 

For those of you who decide to join me…..GOOD LUCK!
