Barley

Move over oatmeal. Ounce-per-ounce barley packs more fiber than almost any other grain. Plus, it’s effective for preventing spikes and dips in blood sugar that send you searching for a snack. First, it boasts a low glycemic index, so its carbohydrates are released slowly into your bloodstream. Then, it’s loaded with beta-glucan, a cholesterol-lowering fiber that also helps regulate blood sugar. Whip up a big batch at the beginning of the week and toss it into salads, soups, and stews. It blends well with pungent ingredients like peppery arugula, as in the recipe below.
