Week 7


GOAL | Go with the grain

  1. Make sure you’re eating a whole grain cereal with at least 5 grams of fiber per serving for breakfast. Raisin bran is a good choice. 
  2. Buy bread with the word “whole” in the first ingredient, as in “whole wheat” or “whole grain.” Just because a bread is brown doesn’t make it whole grain.
  3. Try out a whole wheat pasta. 
  4. Substitute brown rice for white once this week. 
  5. Sprinkle wheat germ or flaxseed (both rich in omega-3 fatty acids) over salads, yogurt, and cereal, and into pancake batter. 
  6. Try one new grain you’ve never had, such as quinoa or amaranth. Most are as simple to fix as rice, yet are packed with fiber and other nutrients.

GOAL | Forgive someone

  1. Identify one person in your life toward whom you hold anger. Write that person a letter forgiving them. You can mail the letter or not; what’s most important is writing it. Save a copy and look at it whenever you feel your anger toward this person returning,

Tip | Are there things you’d like others to forgive you for?
Write them down, then approach those people, either in person or in writing, and ask for their forgiveness.
