I made a spinach salad for lunch and put some sliced figs, diced apple, a small amount of pecans and some cooked whole wheat berries on a bed of fresh baby spinach. I added the whole wheat berries because I just finished reading The Starch Solution and thought to myself "I need some starch on this salad"! I had just cooked some wheat berries in a small crockpot that I own so I rinsed them to cool them down and added them to the salad. Very good! For the salad dressing, I used some bottled fat free poppy seed dressing. I would like to find something a little better for the dressing.
Speaking of the wheat berries, as a child my mother would sometimes cook the whole wheat berries in a crockpot over night and in the morning we'd have the wheat, a little honey and some milk as our hot cereal. I always loved it. It was reading the Starch Solution that brought back those memories and so after I ate the spinach salad, I served myself up a bowl of wheat berries, with a little honey and almond milk. I loved it!
