    Default Whole Grain Question?

    I'm doing core and have been trying new whole grains. How do you count grains such as spelt and kamut? Are they once a day foods like brown rice and whole wheat pasta? I checked with my WW leader and she has no idea. The complete food book doesn't list them at all (At least I didn't see them). Is there a link about whole grains? Thanks for your help, buddies.

    I believe they are "counted" like oatmeal - eat to satisfaction as many times per day as prefered.

    Paris is right. Whole grains are "no limit" (portion-size OR time of day), meaning eat until satisfied (not, full).

    That's too bad that your leader doesn't know the answer to this question~ It's a basic CORE concept.
    May you be happy. May you be well. May you be free from suffering.

    Thanks buddies. My leader is a retired dietician so I was very surprised that she not only didn't know how to count them, she'd never even heard of them! I know these grains aren't what we usually find in grocery stores, but I didn't think they were that unusual. Are they? Any good recipe ideas?
