Whole Grain Sampling Day has always been a day to try healthy whole grains and learn a little more about these nutrient-packed ingredients. As always, we’ll be sharing tips, facts, and recipes online all day, and saluting whole grains and all the ﬂavors and health beneﬁts they oﬀer.
In past years, tasting events have taken place across the country in hundreds of locations. However, this year is unlike any other we have experienced, and with many of our partner organizations temporarily closing their oﬃces or campuses out of concern for COVID-19, we know that many of the 2020 Whole Grain Sampling Day events that have been organized may be cancelled or postponed. In light of this, we’re transitioning to a more virtual celebration and we invite each and every one of you to join us online!
2020 Whole Grain Challenge
In the spirit of virtual festivities, we’re challenging you to choose one of the following three whole grain recipes to make and enjoy on Wednesday, March 25. Take pictures of your delicious creations and post them on social media—Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter—using #SampleWholeGrains so that we can all admire the results! Comment, “like,” and ask questions on our posts, too. Let’s talk about whole grains!
Got a lot of beans in your pantry right now? Use this super simple recipe to throw together a quick, healthy, ﬂavorful snack!
Cooking and baking with your kids is a great way to keep them entertained and pass along wonderful life skills. If you can’t get your hands on fresh blueberries right now, frozen ones work just as well.
This recipe is meant to be adapted to whatever ingredients you have available. Don’t like olives but think your can of artichoke hearts would be great in it? Think it would be even better with some peas? We welcome all your creative modiﬁcations!
While we are practicing social distancing, we hope Whole Grain Sampling Day still creates an opportunity to bring us together! We look forward to seeing you online.
