Wheatberries… have you heard of them?? Wheatberries are the whole grain form of wheat meaning it contains all 3 parts of the wheat kernel: bran, wheat germ, and endosperm. Wheat berries are earthy with a slight nutty crunch, versatile, and packed with fiber and protein! A nice grain to batch cook and have on hand for meals during the week.
It’s summer and cool salads are a staple around our house!
Meet this filling, cool summer salad that is so easy, packed with fiber, antioxidants, Vitamins A, C, K, potassium, folate, and protein! This is meatless but add grilled or roasted chicken or favorite meat for an extra protein punch!
