Dietitian’s Shopping List-#2 Grains

Pastas and rice and other starches: 

Smart Taste Pasta

Ronzoni Garden Delight Pasta

Healthy Harvest Pasta

Success Whole Grain Brown Rice


Time saving tip: Take pasta, salsa or rice, rinsed black beans and corn-mix together and top with low-fat shredded cheese; bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. A quick, but healthy meal.


Look for any brand with more than 3 grams of fiber per serving and no high fructose corn syrup.

Joseph’s Flax Oat Bran and whole wheat pita bread

Whole wheat or multi-grain tortilla’s

100 calorie wheat/multigrain or oatmeal rounds

Calorie Saving Tip: Use a medium sized tortilla to make a sandwich instead of bread-saves about 30 calories; use 2 slices of light bread instead of regular bread and save 70-80 calories;  a third option would be to use the wheat or multigrain 100 calorie rounds and save 80 calories per sandwich.


Kashi brands

Old-fashioned or steel cut oats or low-sugar instant oatmeal

Raisin Bran(much of the total sugar is from raisins)

Bran Flakes

Fiber One
