Grains in the food pyramid is a good source of carbohydrates and nutrients such as magnesium, iron, selenium, B vitamins, and dietary fiber. It is assume that starchy foods like breads are fattening. Actual fact, they are not but when you add fats like margarine, mayonnaise or gravy to them, you added the extra calories. At Levender Gourmet, we use less butter & margarine than the original recipe says. We cut the fat in half without changing the way it tastes or look!
