11. Try adding healthier grain products to your diet.
Although grocery store shelves may be filled with grains and grain products, it doesn’t mean that they are all great for your health. Try to change up your diet a bit by switching to whole grains. Whole grains are loaded with vitamins, fiber, minerals, and plant compounds, which may help curb your cancer risk. Why wouldn’t you not only want to try to eat healthier but also try to reduce the risk of getting cancer if you could? All it takes is a few simple changes, starting at the grocery store.
Not only are whole grains better for you for many reasons, but the fiber found in them helps you stay full longer, helping you not to eat as frequently. Not eating as often will help you to maintain a healthy weight and help keep your cholesterol and blood sugars more stable, too. Try to include brown rice, whole wheat bread, pasta, and wild rice in your diet. Try quinoa as well, because of all the grains. It packs the most protein. Another easy way to sneak in some extra grains would be to add oatmeal to your breakfast.
