Whole Grain Day {Giveaway} #samplewholegrains

Whole Grain Day -3

Being a food blog that primarily focuses on healthier baking, it’s only fitting that I be a part of Whole Grain Sampling Day. Whole Grain Sampling Day is a nationwide,ย annual initiative designed to introduce consumers to the health benefits and great taste of whole grains. There’s even going to be a Whole Grains Toast at noon today! So, post your toast on facebook, twitter or instagram with the hashtag #SampleWholeGrains.

So, when Oldways and the Whole Grains Council asked me to be a Whole Grains Ambassador it was love at first bite. As my first mission, I’m here to tell you to eat more whole grains! Woot!

I sought out to try these lovely goodies filled with whole grains:

Whole Grain Day 1

Well, I can happily say that between my husband and myself we’ve tried most of them and have chosen our favorites!

It’s a no brainer, but my favorite has been Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie Mix.ย I threw in a 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips and voila!


Whole Grain Day -2

My runner ups were the all-time classic Wheat Thins:

Among Friends’ Cookie Mix:

Whole Grain Day 3

and Home Free’s Mini Double Chocolate Chip Cookies:

My husband and I also agreed that these Way Better Snacks were awesome:

…As well as the Real McCoy’s Really Good Rice Chips!

Whole Grain Day 6

ย Those were just some of our favorites and I’m sure my sweet tooth had a significant say in my favorites. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have you ever tried any of these whole grain products? Better yet, want to win these tasty whole grain treats?!?

  1. Oh, yummy! I’ve always been the whole grain person in my family, and the only person who would ever try to find whole grain foods! I always snuck it in with pastas and bread.

  2. I love pepperidge farms ancient grains bread. I was looking for a bread that was semi low cal with fiber and protein and this one is it! Turns out that two slices is 100% of the daily grains you need!!

  3. I put whole grains in pretty much everything, but I really love oatmeal pancakes. What a great giveaway – thank you!

  4. I love quinoa!! It’s a new whole grain for my family that we’ve been trying out lately ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Been using quinoa a lot lately. I also like to sub in whole wheat flour for some of the white when I’m baking.

  6. I always bake with whole wheat flour whether Im making cookies, pasta, or bread. I also love eating oatmeal for breakfast!

  7. I bake with whole wheat flour – pancakes, cookies, cakes, loaf bread for breakfast, some homemade granola recipes, crusts for quiche. Pretty much anything you can substitute whit flour for ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I usually get them from oats or brown rice, but they’re even tastier in whole grain ginger cookies!

  9. It sounds crazy (but try it!) I make a standard smoothie with juice, yogurt and frozen fruit and I add a glob of cold cooked oatmeal. It makes the smoothie very silky, tastes great and is full of whole grain!

  10. I love to add whole grains to my baking ๐Ÿ™‚ hiding all that healthy in something sweet, I like to think it balances it out ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. I love whole grain breads – 21 grain is my favorite. We also love whole grain crackers and snacks.

  12. My favorite way to get whole grains is either the delicious whole grain toast I make every morning, or whole grain pasta! I could never give up carbs, so having a healthier option is amazing. ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. Oatmeal! I absolutely love the endless possibilities when it comes to creating new flavors – currently obsessing over Almond Coconut (:

  14. Subbing all purpose flour with whole wheat is one of the ways I incorporate whole grains into our eating.

  15. I actually love to get my whole grains in a good old fashioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread. I also really like whole wheat pancakes.

  16. I love hearty, whole grain salads to pack for lunch w/ quinoa, brown rice or bulgur plus tons of veggies and goat or feta cheese
