Eating a healthy diet doesn’t have to be overly complicated. While some specific foods or nutrients have been shown to have a beneficial effect on mood, it’s your overall dietary pattern that is most important. The cornerstone of a healthy diet pattern should be to replace processed food with real food whenever possible. Eating food that is as close as possible to the way nature made it can make a huge difference to the way you think, look, and feel.

A major part of the daily diet is formed by cereals in many parts of the world. Cereals belong to the complex carbohydrates food group; and are rich sources of minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates, oils, proteins, and fats. Whole cereal grains have an outer bran coat, a starchy endosperm, and a germ. They are known as staple crops because usually cereals are cultivated in huge quantities, and they provide more food and energy than any other type of crop.

There's a lot of advice out there on how to eat healthy, and if we're being honest, it can sometimes feel like too much to think about. Especially when you're hungry (AKA always).

The food marketing system is the largest direct and indirect non-government employer in the United States.
