Winter Wheatberry Salad

Want to eat healthier? Skip the whole-wheat bread and start eating wheat the right way — with wheat berries!

Wheat berries are wheat kernels direct from the stalk with only the hull removed (the inedible portion). Wheat berries represent wheat in its least processed, most nutrient-dense form.

Family-Style Dinner

I think it’s safe to say that one of the things we modern-day moms do a bit more than our moms did is baby our kids, especially when it comes to what they eat. Some of this is good, of course. Regulating intake of sugar and processed foods is probably not something best left up to people whose idea of a balanced meal is beef jerky and fruit snacks. But at some point, kids need to learn to make their own good choices, right? When and how we do that is each family’s decision, but for me the food thing was getting ridiculous.

Anatomy of a Salad

There’s a make-your-own salad chain here in Atlanta whose tagline is “healthy as you want to be.” It’s a pretty apt slogan, because I’m sure that I’m not the only guest who’s tempted to load up on bacon, cheese, nuts and rich salad dressings.

But in these hot days, a salad is just the thing for a quick, cool and healthy dinner (as long as you nix those aforementioned bacon bits).
