ISSUE 27| April 2018
There's something so  nice about heading into a new season. Here at GLNC, we're enjoying the crisp mornings and thinking about all the slow cooking we can do with grains and legumes over the coming cooler months!
I n this issue we cover off some of the more trendy eating patterns - one is the New Nordic Diet which naturally emphasises whole grains, beans, peas and lentils and would be a great way to hit your whole grain target! The other, is less desirable. The Whole 30 - which suggests a 30 day reset for your body - this may sound ok but wait till you see  the list of forbidden foods! We've assessed the evidence surrounding this diet so you can form your own ideas... but with strong evidence for the inclusion of high fibre grain foods, we won't be following this one.
Remember to follow us on  Facebook ,  Twitter and  Instagram to stay up to date with all our latest news.
Best wishes,

General Manager

What's what with the New Nordic Diet?
The New Nordic Diet is the latest media trend being touted as the next big thing. But what exactly is it? And why is it so good for you? We've taken a look at the latest research so you don't have to!
Get the lowdown on fibre...
Dietitian Teri Lichtenstein from The Healthy Grain dives into the benefits of fibre, looking at the different types we need for optimum gut health and where we can find them.  

Whole 30: what does the research say?
The Whole 30 diet is famous for its focus on fresh produce and lean protein....alongside the exclusion of grains, legumes, dairy, all alcohol and 'treat' foods. With so many beneficial food groups eliminated, we've taken a look at the research behind the restrictive 30 day plan.
