diet is good for us. here, to tell us more about "ancient grains" and how we can incorporate them into everyday recipes is i-s-u registered dietician rael wall. rachel, thanks for joining us today. r rhel, what areencient grains? there are a lot of varieties of ancient grains? what are the health benefits? examples of the grains? recipes? ancient grains there is no official definition of 'ancient grains'. however, the whole grains council defines ancient grains loosese as grains that are largely unchanged over the last several hundred years. therefore, modern wheat, which has been bred and changed over time, is not an ancient grain. grains like quinoa, amaranth, kamut, spelt, farro, millet, and teff would be considered ancient grains. ancient grains are certainly healthier than refined grain
or refined crackers. however, healthy whole grains do not need to be exotic. common foods like brown rice, whole grain pasta, oatmeal, popcorn, and whole wheat bread offer many health benefits and often at lower prices. to get the different nutrients each grain has to offer and balance cost, eat a variety of grain foods. here is some information about 3 of the more common ancient grains: quinoa a versatile grain that cooks quickly and is good in soups, salads, and baked goods. quinoa is a small round grain that is similar in appearance to sesame seeds. it is also high in protein. kamut it is a large, oversizeded grain that is twowoo three times bigger than wheat. it has a rich, buttery flavor and is easily digested. farro this grain is popular in italy. it is a dark, earthy grain that is often used in salads and risottos. stuffed peppers ingredients pound ground italian sausage, turkey sausage, or beef 1 onion, chopped 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves 1 can spaghetti sauce " 3 cups cooked whole
1 p shredded mozzarellll cheese 4 green or red peppers instructions 1. preheat oven to 350f. 2. saut sausage and onion in a large skiet over medium heat until browned and cooked to 155f. pour off any fat. 3. stir in oregano, spaghetti sauce, rice, and cup cheese. . wash peppers, cut t half lengthwise, and remove seeds. arrange in a 9x13-inch baking dish. 5. spoon sausage mixture into the peppers, mounding on the top. 6. cover with foil. bake for230 minutes. removehe foil and sprinkle remaining cup cheese on top. continue to cook another 10 minutes. a judge sealed a dubuque man's fate for the third time. eddie cst will spend 50 years in prison for robbing a bar and shohoing a police officer. and you're looking live on our city cam this morning. kaj will be back right after the break with look at your forecast. stay with us. meteorologist kaj o'mara joins
