Yes, you can feast this season while still being smart about nutrition and money.
Upgrade Your Grains
If you replace white rice and flour with whole-grain versions, you'll glean a host of benefits; they're richer in filling fiber and nutrients. Brown rice, for instance has at least twice as much iron as white; corn tortillas contain three times more magnesium than flour ones and double the fiber. An even better choice: mix half brown rice with half quinoa, which is much higher in protein and fiber.
