If whole grains and beans have been a limited part of your usual, comfortable eating habits, how do you move from knowing they’re recommended for good health to enjoying them as part of everyday eating?
- Are you stuck in a rut with your only whole grains coming from whole wheat bread or breakfast cereal?
- Are dried beans only on your plate in an occasional bowl of chili or in the form of hummus as a dip?
Despite any additional motivation for healthy eating, studies show that overall, survivors of adult or childhood cancers tend to have diets as unhealthy, or even less healthy, than the population as a whole.

Whether or not you are a cancer survivor, there are tips here for you!
After you watch the video, read on for ideas and a bevy of resources to help make whole grains and legumes an easy and enjoyable part of your everyday eating habits….
