Couscous are little granules made from wheat. You can buy it made either from whole grain or refined grain.

Couscous is not what I would consider an "intact" whole grain. I would recommend that if you choose to include it, that you get the whole grain variety.

In regard to calorie density, I would consider it similar to whole wheat pasta, which, although processed, still has a low calorie density because of the water it absorbs during the cooking process.

You can read more about my thoughts on grains and intact whole grains at the link below
