THIS IS A light, refreshing whole grain recipe that makes a delicious side dish for your summer grilling. Whole grains have gotten a bad reputation with the Paleo craze, so let me share one reason why whole grains are an important part of your diet. The glucose in complex carbohydrates (the actual whole grain), is the primary fuel source for many of the body’s vital organs, including the brain. Serotonin levels will drop without consuming carbs, which can lead to feeling depressed.
