Gorgeous Grains

created by ckbk

The addition of grains is a tasty and simple way of bulking out soups or fortifying an otherwise lean salad. Consider replacing less salubrious carbs with these heart-healthy cereals and seeds which are naturally high in protein and vitamins. Experiment with different varieties such as gluten-free quinoa, spelt (the ancient relative of modern-day wheat), and the "supergrain" freekah. Long-lasting, adaptable and simple to prepare grains, are great to have on hand whatever the season.
