In our July/August story “Health on the Grill,” we learned that many vegetables take beautifully to grilling. We asked readers of our blog at www.energytimes.com what foods they enjoyed in the great outdoors.
My favorite grilled food is romaine lettuce: I brush with olive oil, grill it to blackened, then sprinkle with bleu cheese and slivered almonds.
My sister, mother, and I are vegetarians. We enjoy grilling veggie burgers, corn on the cob and vegetable kabobs. No meat, less fat, but the same amount of flavor!
A friend sent us a page from Energy Times that included a recipe for baked chicken with apples and barley (Cooking Corner, February 2011). My husband (C.W. Newman, PhD) and I are retired professors emeritus from Montana State University and have written several scientific texts on barley. In 1989 we published the first human study on barley’s cholesterol-lowering effects. This grain contains significant amounts of beta-glucans, which also decreases the rate at which glucose is absorbed from the intestines—a real bonus for persons who have, or are at risk for, diabetes.
I maintain the blog www.barleyisbetter.com and believe that it is the most unknown and unappreciated of the cereal grains available to North American consumers. We applaud your comments on using more barley in everyday recipes.

In our July/August Wellness Watch item “How Clean Is Your City’s Air,” we presented a list of the cities with the lowest amounts of particle pollution. Number six, Anchorage, is obviously in Alaska—not in Arkansas as printed.
