  • Whole grains: See if they pass the 3-step test

    Less than 5 percent of Americans consume the minimum recommended amount of whole grains.

    Although Ameri-cans generally eat enough total grains, most grains consumed are “refin-ed” grains rather than “whole” grains. Unfortunately, many refined grain foods are high in solid fats and added sugars.

    There is evidence that eating whole grains may reduce the risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer (e.g., colon) as well as help control body weight.

  • God never promised he would give us ‘happiness’

    A few weeks back I wrote about “What’s making me happy,” which got a great response from people.

    Some sent emails or stopped me in the market to tell me what’s making them happy. Seems everyone was riding the happiness train.

    But then someone pointed out that God never promised us happiness and that those who pursue it never obtain it.

    There’s always a buzz kill in every crowd.

    Still, the person had a good point and one worth exploring.
