    Oatmeal and Barley Are They Healthy Or Not
    I get mixed reviews on whether oatmeal and barley healthy for eatting.

    I am not a celiac.

    In your opinion is it healthy to eat these foods or better to stay away from them.

    Any tips will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, they are healthy. Like any healthy food, there is nothing magic or curative about one food. They are best eaten unprocessed, but I eat oatmeal that is the 5 minute kind rather than the soak overnight and cook for an hour kind, or the 1 minute kind. Barley is sweetish so goes nicely with other grains. I tend to eat a lot more rice than either oats or barley, but that's just me.

    Like any healthy food, they are best when eaten as part of a wide and varied diet. THERE ARE NO MAGIC BULLETS.
