(WB) Everyone is interested in improving their diet. Adding grains is one of the easiest ways. Many people in the United States have a growing concern about nutrition, so grains are often served in restaurants. And many grains are now available in grocery stores, too --- though for some you still have to go to health food stores. You can stock up when you go, though, because uncooked grains keep a long time.

You'll find that grains are easy to prepare. Many grains are as simple to cook as spaghetti. Barley1, for instance, is just cooked in salted water. Remember, though, whole-grain barley --- the most nutritious2 --- kind never will get as tender as spaghetti no matter how long it's cooked.

Grain-based salads are easy, too. Just use grains left over from a hot meal. You call even put together a grain salad hours before you need it, since grains don't wilt3 like lettuce4 does.

But to get back to health factors, all grains are nutritious and many have special benefits. Barley has very little fat. Some experts believe that it may even reduce cholesterol5 levels. Jasmine rice is also low in fat. And it has a bonus in its wonderful aroma6, a very special fragrance7.
