You should try barley! Barley has a little different flavor, and a slightly stickier texture than rice, but it can be substituted for rice in every dish I've found. It has a much lower GI than rice. Rice is a BIG NO NO! If you do decide to try it, don't get the quick barley, get pearl barley. I get it at my local health foods store, but many supermarkets carry it, too.
Note: I find that rice, when cooked usually doubles in size. Barley triples or quadruples in size, so it takes awhile to get it right. I always end up with about 5 times more than I need!
Please tell me how to hook up that mind-body connection; my mind is sharp, but my body is not!
