What if I don’t like whole grains?

Mix grains if you don’t like whole grains.

Mix grains and transition slowly over to whole grains.


  • Mix brown rice or wild rice with white rice.
  • Make whole wheat pasta with regular pasta.
  • Combine 100% whole wheat couscous with regular couscous.
  • Make a sandwich with one piece of 100% whole wheat.
  • Combine whole grain cereal with another cereal.

Mixing grains can help you gradually get used to the taste and consistency of whole grains. Like many other things, it can be an acquired taste.
