Wholesome breads help you stay fit and fight disease

Many women forgo carbs in an effort to lose weight and be healthier. Unfortunately, their actions are woefully misguided. Carbohydrates are one of the basic building blocks of a healthy diet. Not only do they keep you full and fight fatigue, but whole grains in particular are helpful when it comes to developing a fit and healthy figure.

According to the Mayo Clinic, whole grains are an essential part of a healthy diet because they provide you with vitamins and minerals that aren't normally found in other sources. They're also low in fat, and can help you avoid diabetes, heart disease, cancer and other health conditions.

If you love whole wheat bread and are looking for other exciting ways to incorporate healthy whole grains into your diet, try some of these dishes.

1. Oatmeal: Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast food because it fills you up and gives you energy. Best of all, you can add toppings to give it a hint of flavor. Strawberries and low-fat cream make an excellent twist on the traditional.

2. Farro risotto: Risotto is another filling and versatile food that can be adapted to just about any flavor. Try a nutritious mushroom and spinach farro risotto for dinner.

3. Whole wheat couscous: This delicious dish from the Middle East and Mediterranean regions is great for a quick lunch or dinner. Try it with a hint of crushed garlic and a little crushed black pepper.
