An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RECIPE: Simple Farro Salad

I can get a little “salad fatigue”, especially in the winter months.  A bowl of leafy greens, which I know I need, just doesn’t tempt me they was it does in the Spring.

So I’ve created this warm, savory salad to deliver greens to my my bod, while tempting my (taste)buds!

Farro (rhymes with “tomorrow”) is a super healthy, ancient, Italian whole grain with lots of protein.

farro saladINGREDIENTS & INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Boil 1 cup Farro with 2 cups water (or vegetable broth) for ~ 10 minutes and strain

2. In a large glass sealable container combine farro, 3 cups organic arugula (or spinach), 1/4-1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes chopped , and 1/2 of 5 oz sleeve of goat cheese (I use the kind with herbs)

3. Add sea salt and pepper to taste

Enjoy warm or serve cold (I prefer it warm)

Serves 6-8 and keeps in fridge all week!
