Barley can be transformed into a delicious pilaf when baked with beef broth and some veggies or beans... Add to cabbage rolls instead of rice.

Barley and rye kernels are on the low glycemic index. Make barley soup, add a slice of toasted rye. Buy hulled barely. Have Barley Flakes for breakfast. Barley is often simmered but can be baked in a casserole and there are Barley Grits. Barley helps control blood because of the soluable fiber. Barley lots of fiber helps to significantly reduce the glycemic index of a meal it is added to. Add a handful of barley to soup or steamed veggies.

Complex carbs include the fiber in spinach, watercress, buckwheat (kasha), barley, wild or brown rice, beans, and some fruit

How much and what kind of carbohydrates you eat matter.
Sweet Potatoes will digest slowly, Avocado contains fiber to help slow down blood sugar increases, so does oatmeal, Kashi pilaf

Cherries, pears, peaches, plums, apples, kiwi. Berries have the least impact on blood sugar.... all kinds of berries.

0% Fage Plain Greek yogurt and blueberries to sweeten, Toasted Rye Bread sliced thinly with almond butter and topped with a teaspoon of flaxseed, Egg Whites with broccoli, onions and green peppers.

Almonds, cashews, macadamia nuts, Brazil nuts, pecans and walnuts contain healthy fats

Garlic, onions, flaxseeds, seasame seeds, Cinnamon, brown rice w/sliced almonds

Some soups help you feel more satiated, make you eat less, avoid blood sugar and insulin
spikes, target belly fat & burn more fat. Try Beef Barley, Lentil soup, Black Bean Soup, tomato soup. Think miestrone when eating out. Chicken soup, omit the noodles.

Baked Portobello Pizza
2 large portobello mushroom, stem removed

1 tsp of Romano or Parm Cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 tablespoon sliced black olives, optional
1 slice of red onion, chopped small
1 clove garlic, chopped or minced
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Place the mushroom on a Pam Olive Oil sprayed baking sheet, and fill the cavity of the portobella with the minced garlic, then add the parm or romano cheese, raw onion, mozzerella and spread sauce in the cup of the cap. Top with parm or romano cheese
Bake for additional 25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden. These are soooo good and sooo easy.
