The Whole Story

Growing in the open fields are many flowers and plants. Inside the plant, seeds grow big and strong. Each seed is considered to be called a "Kernel." Within every seed, there are three parts. Those three parts of the seed are responsible for giving us Antioxidants, Phytonutrients, Fiber, Proteins, Starchy Carbs, Minerals, Vitamin B, & Other Vitamins. A Whole Grain is the entire seed of a plant. Whole Grains are found in many things we all enjoy eating. From breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even some snacks! It has been recommended to have a serving of Whole Grains, daily. Here's a few items to look for, the next time you're going grocery shopping:
  • Brown & Wild Rice
  • Bulgur (Cracked Wheat)
  • Millet
  • Popcorn
  • Quinoa
  • Whole-Grain Barley
  • Whole Oats & Oatmeal
  • Whole Rye
  • Whole Wheat

Bright Idea

Did you know that a lot of our electricity is fueled by coal? Electricity is the source that powers our Light Bulbs, & Heating. We also use electricity for Machines, Reading, Watching TV, Charging Batteries, and Playing Video Games. Not saying there's anything wrong with flashlights, lanterns and candles, because they too come in handy in case of a power outage. Coal is a natural mineral, that can be found in mountains or below the ground. The BRAVE people who gathers coal for buildings, and our homes, are called "Coal Miners." Thanks to all Coal Miners for your hard work, in order to give us power. Ok hand sign

Gotta' Get Packing

Moving from one place to another is called "Relocating." When we move into a new home, we never wanna' leave our Precious Memories or Priceless Treasures behind. That's why we pack our belongings inside moving boxes, for safe keeping. To prevent any damages towards our fragile items, it is best to use something called "Packing Peanuts." Made out of foam, Packing Peanuts are used to fill-in packages. It gives just enough cushioning, to keep our things intact. Though they are not edible, they sure make the process of moving pretty sweet.
