Feeling like you’re in the whole grain doldrums? Tired of brown rice, whole wheat, and oatmeal? Whatever you do, don’t give up on the grains! We’d like to introduce you to a nutty alternative – Barley. Super high in fiber – in fact 20% more than oatmeal, barley helps regulate glucose and insulin levels, maintain a healthy gut, and more specifically, it contains a substance called beta glucan which helps lower cholesterol levels.
Besides all that amazing nutrition – barley is so mild it can be dressed up in endless ways…
- Paired beautifully with any sauce or vinaigrette
- Tossed with fresh or roasted veggies and beans for a quick salad
- As the heart of a homey mushroom or beef barley soup
- With warm skim milk and honey for a cozy breakfast
