Farmers Market: Wheatberries

If you ever wanted an alternative to rice or pasta, wheatberries may be the answer. Wheatberries are actually kernels. Because the kernel is left intact, the nutrients aren't lost when it is cooked. Wheatberries are full of fiber, iron and protein. The kernels also have antioxidants and magnesium, which are important for bone and muscle health. They are chewy with a little bit of a nutty flavor.

Wheatberries can be found in the natural section of most groceries. They come as white or red wheatberries but are nutritionally the same. A versatile food, you can enjoy them steamed or boiled. They are delicious with butter and maple syrup, in a salad or with milk and cinnamon. Wheatberries are great added to soup and even chili.
