I’m back in Ontario! I started the day by heading to CTV Ottawa for their Morning Live show. For this segment, Jeff Hopper and I discussed our health claim. Jeff was very impressed to know that eating three grams of beta barley glucan helps reduce cholesterol.

Be sure to check out my entire interview by visiting the CTV Ottawa website.

After my interview with CTV, I stopped off at three Ottawa radio stations. I visited with 580 CFRA, 93.9 Bob FM and Majic 100. I gave each of them a basket of baked barley goods and loads of great recipes.

For lunch, Laura Robin of the Ottawa Citizen and I were hosted by prominent Ottawa food blogger, Korey Kealey. Korey hosted us in her kitchen as Laura’s photographer took pictures of everything we sampled.

After our lunch I met with three other Ottawa food bloggers about all things barley. Paula Roy from Constantly Cooking, Katrina Mertikas and Julie Findlay all stopped by.

We chatted about barley, exchanged recipes and even took a few photos. Be sure to check out their barley blogs by clicking on the links above. Today’s been a long day. Tomorrow, I’m off to Winnipeg!
