Choose Wholefoods for Better Health
In a world full of fad diets, quick bites, and intricate recipes, don’t forget about the wonders of simple, nourishing organic wholefoods. Wholefoods are foods that have undergone either no or very minimal processing, leaving intact all the nutritional benefits that nature intended. Research shows time and time again that a balanced diet full of whole foods—mainly fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes—is the ticket to excellent health. At Wholefoods Earth, you’ll find a selection of wholefoods to buy online throughout our entire website. In this section, we’ve compiled the backbone of a chiefly organic wholefood and/or transition to a vegan diet: legumes and rice.
Cooking with Wholefood Legumes
With dried whole beans, soya, and lentils you have everything you need to make delectable meals. Our favourite? Hearty soups. As traditional canned soups are loaded in sodium and added sugar, creating your own is a nutritious winner for family supper time. Simply add vegetable stock and whatever veggies you have on hand to dried whole beans and cook over low heat. Consider pouring it over rice and you have an extremely nutritiously-balanced meal. Don’t have much time for investing in your own recipes? Try our GMO-free Soup Mix. Featuring the star ingredient Pearl Barley, an ancient whole grain rich in nutrients, dinner just got a whole lot easier.
Cooking with Wholefood Rice
Naturally gluten-free and extremely versatile, rice is a staple in many diets around the world. This starchy grain is inexpensive, especially when purchased in bulk, making it a great option for families (especially with picky eaters or with gluten sensitivity). The American Heart Association recommends making half of the grains you eat whole grains. That means choosing brown rice over white when possible. Both white and brown rice are naturally gluten-free but the most exciting part of rice is the versatility. We have Arborio rice for a Risotto, Basmati rice for curry, couscous for a hearty Morrocan meal, sticky rice for sushi and delicious Asian-inspired meals, plus a variety of long grain, short grain and wild rice. Every type of rice contains the carbohydrates you need to fuel your day.
Your Hearty Pantry Staples
Besides lovely rich meals, why would you want to buy these wholefoods online? Grains truly make the basis of most meals. When choosing whole grains such as these, you have the best protein for a vegan diet. For example, black beans contain more than seven grams of protein per half a cup! High in carbohydrates, calcium, iron and B vitamins, lentils are also a fantastic source of protein for vegetarians. They contain an amazing 26g of protein per 100 grams. Organic Red Kidney Beans contain more than 15g of fibre per 100 grams! These options are true vegan fibre and protein heroes.
Storage for Long-Term Use
These wholefoods are wonderful for cooking in bulk and storing for quick, easy dinner solutions or lunches on-the-go. Once your rice is cooked, store it in the refrigerator and use it within four days. Store uncooked rice and beans in their own airtight container in a cool, dry place. These amazing, long-lasting wholefood options are perfect pantry staples.
