Healthy Diet Food Event - Cooking with Whole Grains

Well this month Healthy Diet Food Event by Priya's Versatile Recipes, comes to Spice and Curry. For this month theme, it’s about cooking with whole grains. So what exactly are whole food grains?
Whole food grains comes from naturally occurring nutrients of the entire grain or seed, if I go into details- then it should have endosperm, bran and germ. But as far as I know for our consumption grains should be little bit processed retaining the essential nutrients as in terms of – cracking, rolled, and crushed so that they can be consumed.
What are the food products that can be considered whole grains? - Wheat or whole wheat,  Millet, buckwheat, Corn (including cornmeal) Oats (including oatmeal), Quinoa, Amaranth, Rice- brown rice and colored rice, Rye, Sorghum, Barley and wild rice.
So meals or food prepared with above is all welcomed.

There is a wonderful article about whole food grains Here,  and if you have any confusion, do let me know.

Meanwhile in my initial blogging years I wrote some pointers for a healthy life-style which I do try to practice still - Here
