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.

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