Why Doctor Grandma’s?

May 22, 2010 in Doctor Grandmas by Webmaster

Not everyone has the time or interest to mill his or her own grain. So, Dr. Grandma’s does it for you! The goal of Dr. Grandma’s is to support your desire to eat whole grains by providing quick and easy ways to create meals that you will love.

The nutrients found in whole grains are causing quit a stir. New studies emerge daily about the health benefits of eating whole grains. A diet rich in whole grains has been shown to help reduce the risk of heart disease, type-2 diabetes, obesity, and some forms of cancer. Whole grain diets also improve bowel health; they help maintain regular bowel movements and promote the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon.

These days it is becoming extremely difficult to identify true whole grains in a marketplace where everyone is advertising their products as nutritious whole grain goodness. We are surrounded by terms like multigrain, 100 percent wheat, cracked wheat, organic, pumpernickel, bran, and stone ground. These all sound like whole grains, but none of these descriptions actually indicate whole grain.

Dr. Grandma’s understands the need for a healthy product containing 100 percent whole wheat. This is why she created Dr. Grandma’s Pancake and Waffle Mix and Dr. Grandma’s Muffins Your Way Mix, which provide a healthy meal you and your family will love. When Dr. Grandma’s is cooking, you will never have to wonder if you are eating true whole grains. The nutritious mixes contain simply the best ingredients nature produces, mixed with love from Grandma’s kitchen.

Tips from Dr. Grandma

Dr. Grandma suggests we look at nutrition a little differently. When a nutrient is discovered to have a beneficial property, we should:

Learn which foods supply that nutrient.
Think about the foods you and your family enjoy that supplies that nutrient.
Consider if there are ways we can include or increase the foods supplying that nutrient in our diet.
When we learn about beneficial nutrients we should not:

Go to the pharmacy or health food store, buy that supplement, and take it in large amounts. The nutrients in foods come in relatively small amounts; which is good, because in large amounts some nutrients could be harmful.
