(HealthDay News) — Whole grains are nutrient-rich foods that are full of fiber to help you feel full.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests ways to work more whole grains into your diet:

  • Include a whole grain food for breakfast, such as whole-grain toast, oatmeal or cereal.
  • When shopping, choose whole-grain options of tortillas, buns, bread, bagels and pasta.
  • Consider more unusual grains, such as bulgur, whole rye, millet, sorghum and quinoa.
  • Snack on whole grains, such as air-popped popcorn or 100 percent whole wheat or rye crackers.
