Whole grains are packed with nutrients including protein, fiber, vitamins, antioxidants & minerals and are an important staple of a healthy diet. I wrote a post dedicated to the “whole-someness of wholegrains” here! I am featuring them on this page to show all the different ways I have incorporated them in a whole variety of recipes, from breads, to salads, to side dishes, to breakfasts & main entrées, to snacks & smoothies and, of course, to desserts!
Here is glossary for you to go right to WHOLE GRAINS in my recipes and save you the hassle of having to go looking for them in all the different categories– I will come back and add more as I create them, of course!
I also just found a fantastic list on the Food Network of whole grains and a summary for each of how to best cook it, so helpful–Click Here!

Omg Catherine! This stuffing was so delicious! It tasted like Thanksgiving! My husband loved it too! I have to sneak grains & veggies in his food to get him to eat better. I saw the episodes on Awakening from Alzheimer’s. Your husband, David, was my favorite speaker. He was so down to earth, a wealth of helpful information, & he mentioned you & Cuisinicity. So of course I had to check out your website. Gosh, you are so warm & inviting and I love your kitchen! I’ve been to France several times and I too had a country French kitchen. I love your passion, energy and I can’t wait to try your other recipes. I’m Italian and majored in food science In college. We too are attempting to go more plant based but my husband not so willing. So I disguise spinach & black beans in his brownies & cauliflower with squash sauce in his Mac & cheese. A challenge! You do it for 7 people! God bless you! Keep doing what you’re doing making everybody healthy with your recipes & all you are involved in!, Bon Appétit!

It’s superb! https://cuisinicity.com/sneaky-macaroni-cheese/. Please keep us all posted on your great dishes too,

Donna, thank you for your reply. I’m definitely going to try Catherine’s Sneaky Mac n’ Cheese. My husband will love it!!
I’m also going to make her Chocolate Zucchini Muffins. He’s such a chocolate fan-then I can also disguise spinach! 😁
