Whole Grains for Energy
Carbohydrate is your body’s #1 source of energy and should be eaten at all meals and snacks! Try to eat whole wheat/whole grain as much as you can as they provide your body with long- lasting energy. Good examples include: whole wheat bagels & bread, whole grain granola bars & cereals, oatmeal, pasta, brown rice and potatoes with skin.
