Wheat Berries

“Move over, quinoa. Wheat berries, which are whole-wheat kernels, contain one of the highest amounts of protein and fiber per serving of any grain – 6 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. Protein triggers the hormone ghrelin to tell our brain that we are satisfied…and fiber activates appetite-suppressing gut hormones…Toss wheat berries with apples, nuts and other diet-friendly foods to make a super tasty salad.” (p. 41)
