I have blogged about how I would boil barley water and later eat the barley for a meal as well. Today, I brought to work a container of barley and winter melon strips drenched in soya bean milk.
My sister boiled barley water over the weekend and she was going to throw away the barley and winter melon strips. I asked her to keep them for me in a container so that I could bring to work for lunch. She kindly obliged.
This morning, I poured soya bean milk into the container and, voila, that's my lunch for the day!
Barley has been described as a nutritional powerhouse that has a low glycemic index (GI). It is high in fiber, naturally low in fat and cholesterol free. It contains vitamin Bs, antioxidants, selenium, iron, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, potassium and copper.
A healthy meal and it costs next to nothing!
