actually i wouldn't agree with that. Anything that says whole wheat may still have a bunch of crap it in. Look for breads with Stoneground wheat as the 1st ing. and the ing. list should be short. Mostly the flour, water, salt and stuff like that. No HFCS, preservatives or WHITE FLOUR. lol. just read the labels. Something with a high fiber amount is even better. Food for Life makes some good breads.

That's why I had 100% in bold. 100% mean 100% In other words, no extra crap in it, as you say.

Pastas are all good, white or wheat. Rices, brown or white, also both good choices. Being that they are compacted bundles of carbs, they do not cause dramatic blood sugar rises, thus, good carbs.

yeah, white and wheat pasta are both pretty much on the same level, the only difference is more fiber in the wheat variety, nonetheless make sure your pasta is unenriched... no need for all that extra processing. You can usually find good pastas at an organic foods store... or you can try this, this is what i use.

I'm actually quite fond of Catelli multigrain pasta - it tastes pretty good. I don't even like the white stuff anymore - it just tastes too boring.

not to be rude man, but don't say something if you don't really know what your talking about. here is proof right here that a bread says 100% whole wheat but still contain crap.

You've really got to read the ingredients on products - and watch what they call a "serving size", too - it's amazing how many products are labelled "fat free" because the fat grams for a "serving" are under a gram.

So, you can have fat-free ham, bacon...
Carb-free chips...

You'll need to get the magnifying glass to see your "serving", but whatever...

A 100% whole wheat product can still contain ingredients such as "enriched wheat flour", I believe. This is still processed and is generally something you may want to avoid if you're real anal about that type of thing.

That still seems pretty ok to me, unless you want to be anal about it. :D

i dont know how anal he is but i could care less i dont really eat bread but i was pointing out that paying for the name 100% Whole Wheat with out it actually being that is sorta pointless since most whole grains usually cost more.

Shredded 100%whole wheat cereal in the organic section is good.
