1/2 cup barley
1 qt water
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
3 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
2 tbsp finely chopped dill, -=or=- dried dill
1 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
1 tbsp snipped chives
1 freshly ground pepper
1 dash paprika or herb blossoms (if availa, ble, for garnish)
RINSE THE BARLEY and put it in a pot with the water and salt to taste.
Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer until the barley is
tender, about 45 minutes. Drain the barley. (The liquid can be
reserved to use in another soup.) Toss the onions into the warm
barley to wilt them slightly; then put the mixture in a soup bowl

taste with additional salt. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
Serve with freshly ground pepper and paprika or with a garnish of
blossoms, such as chive blossoms, cilantro flowers or mustard petals.

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Food labels can be misleading
Don't believe sales blurb that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the rear of the can or packet. Some are only a little lowered and in some cases still more than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are the same.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, leeks and welsh onion)
