It’s September – that means whole grains are a Foods of the Month! Pasta salads are excellent options for dinner or lunch. They make great leftovers because they can be transported easily and eaten cold. Be sure to load up your whole wheat pasta salads with lean meats and fresh veggies for the most vitamins and minerals. This will keep you fuller too!
