Barley, 7 Delicious Ways


 Tired of rice?  Quinoa old news?  Bust out the barley! 

Barley rocks!  It’s nutty and chewy and has lots of fiber and niacin – a B vitamin that can help prevent cardiovascular disease.  For you Mila lovers out there – these are perfect recipes to sprinkle a tablespoon on just before you eat your serving. Not only will this keep you regular but these slow burning carbohydrates will keep your energy up and keep you fuller longer – aiding in weight loss.

Here are seven of ways to eat this hearty grain with both vegan and vegetarian options (in no particular order – these are all number one in my book). 

 #1 Try it with roasted squash, cherries and walnuts.
