Save money on food by using whole grains. There’s no better budget stretcher than cooking with whole grains. Pearl barley, brown rice, and bulgur are low in fat, high in protein, and tummy-filling. Combine with meat or veggies to make a little money go a long, healthy way. Be E.I. and healthy at the same time!
