Whole grains are high in fiber, vitamins & minerals.  They are low in fat & provide a good source of protein.  Rotate your grains to reap the benefits of each.  Some cooking directions recommend rinsing and straining your grains first to remove any foreign debris (small pebbles). Broth can be substituted for water for a more flavourful sidedish. Cooking times may vary slightly.
