What's this all about?
We love whole grains! We have found that we prefer their flavor. They are also far healthier than the refined foods which characterize the typical modern diet.
Switching to whole grains helps maintain a low glycemic diet. That means you will have more sustainable energy levels throughout the day, and probably fewer problems with weight control.
We created this website with one goal: to build an online community of like-minded people who either share our enthusiasm about whole grains or just want to learn more about them.

Some good friends of ours recently asked us for this recipe. They planned to serve it at a family Easter dinner. We met with them yesterday and it sounds like they loved it. It had been a little while since we last made it, so we decided to put some red wheat berries to soak last night before bed.
As I sit here with a full belly writing this, I sure am glad we did. This is a delicious whole grain salad. The texture of the wheat berries, wild rice, pecans, and cranberries is fantastic. The flavor combination is wonderful. If you have never tried a wheat berry salad then this is a great way to do so. I usually serve it over a bed of fresh spinach, and accompany it with grilled shrimp. Toss the spinach in some olive oil and lightly salt it with a pinch of kosher salt before topping it with the wheat berry salad.
