Hi Karen and Bill,
Some interesting links on the subject:
http://www.macrobiotic.org/health4.html- this link has the answer you are looking for I think.
http://www.foodsnherbs.com/grains,_beans_&_seeds.htm (TCM food value table! - fascinating!)
Found these links in google.com by typing in seeds and grains!
As for weather, it's still cold and wet most days here, we're expecting a big snow storm tomorrow, that is they're expecting snow up in the mountains. During the winter of '91, we had snow all over the country. It even snowed a bit by us, didn't stick at all. But 4 kms. up the road (and 100 meters higher than us) there was 20 cm of snow. And 8 kms. further up the road, and another 150 meters in altitude, and there was over 1/5 meter of snow!
Love and Light
p.s. just for the sake of argument. My husband, blood type A, thin (always has been) and healthy, does fantastic on the A diet. I'm also an A, and couldn't lose any weight on the diet (which I need to do). My mom (O) is very strict about eating according to the btd, and is healthier than ever (she's been a health food nut since the '50's too). I think we all need to know ourselves, and not get obsessed over what we eat. So, of course, I'm leaving this to each one of us to know what this means for them.
