PLEASANTON, Calif. --
Safeway here has partnered with Dean Ornish, president of the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute, to provide a guide to nutritious foods. The Web-based tool, available on all Safeway company websites, lists the nutritional benefits of various food groups, including fruits, vegetables, oils and grains. "What you include in your diet is as important as what you exclude," Ornish said in a statement. "These are foods that help you look better, feel better, lose weight and gain health." The grain category, for instance, states that "whole grain bread, cereals and crackers may reduce your cholesterol level and may decrease colon cancer risk."
