In brief: Great grains!
Quinoa is higher in protein than other major grains, and contains all the essential amino acids.
It has a low glycemic index, loaded with fiber, and very high in calcium, iron and b vitamins. Barley is easy to digest, high in selenium (good for elasticity of skin) manganese and b vitamins. It can act as an appetite suppressant. High fiber, low fat, soothing to the bowels.
