There’s so many wonderful grains to try, I’m definitely a victim of repeating my grains but it’s time to step out and try others more often such as barley, faro, wheat berries and spelt. They are whole grains, very nutritious and fun to eat with their chewy texture. A healthy variety included in the diet ensures the body receives the nutrients, minerals and vitamins to sustain balance, and anyway who wants to eat the same thing over and over.

2 tsp maple syrup

Soak the barley for 4 hours in water, rinse well and add the barley to a medium pot, add 4 cups of water pinch of sea salt and bring to a boil, lower heat and cover simmering for 55 minutes. Other grain options are faro, spelt or wheat berries follow cooking instructions since those will require less water.
