BARLEY

You love it in beer – but make it a whole­grain sta­ple too. Barley has a nutty flavour and is packed with selenium, man­ganese, vi­ta­min B1 and a type of fi­bre that di­gests slowly to sta­bilise glu­cose lev­els and keep you feel­ing full longer. Eat­ing it can also im­prove blood choles­terol, the Amer­i­can Jour­nal Of Clin­i­cal Nu­tri­tion re­ported.

OATS

Oats are tops for man­ganese (cru­cial for bone health and glu­cose con­trol) and fi­bre.

QUINOA

The rare grain with all nine essen­tial amino acids, quinoa’s also packed with an­tiox­i­dants.

HARICOT AND BLACK BEANS

Haricot beans are high in omega 3s; black are a rich pro­tein source. They don’t have to be fresh – canned beans are also nu­tri­tious.

LENTILS

High in omega 3s and fi­bre, lentils cook quickly and pair well with turmeric and cin­na­mon.
