Grain Salad: A Template

In my attempts to mostly stick with  my every day food plan this month, I've been working with vegan recipes that are quick to make yet produce lots of food at once.

Wheat berries take a while to cook (Just follow the directions on the back of your package, but it generally goes: dump grains in boiling water and lower the stove to low and simmer at least an hour until they are done.), but once they are tender, this salad is quick to come together. I'm giving you the "recipe" for what I actually did below, but this is more of a template really. Cooked grains + chopped vegetables + herbs + beans or nuts or dried fruit + cold pressed oil + acid + salt = lunches all week.

I used wheat berries here, but you could use barley or rye or if you are gluten-free, quinoa.


1 cup of wheat berries

1 English cucumber, chopped

1 pint of grape tomatoes, halved

a generous handful of flat leaf parsley, chopped

cold pressed olive oil

kosher salt

Meyer lemons

Cook the grains according to the package directions. Drain them and let them cool before adding the other ingredients. I dole the mixture out into glass containers and add half a Meyer lemon to squeeze over each serving just before lunch each day.

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really
make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme.
Thanks a lot

Hello there! Do you know if they make any
plugins to protect against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard
on. Any suggestions?

put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about for a long time.
Excellent stuff, just great!
