Remember wheatberries?

Ok, it's that time of year. It has been winter for quite some time now, yet, we still have a few months until it is truly warm.

Have you gotten the flu yet? Norovirus? How about food poisoning? I've had all three!! Which means I need to pack on a few pounds to keep warm during the second half of winter! I'd rather not do this by eating brownies and and sun chips (although it is tempting!), so it's time to pull out the wheatberries.

These delicious whole grains are extremely versatile and really fill you up!  See my first post about wheat berries here!

This time, I sautéed onions, red peppers, chopped zucchini, and boiled kale in olive oil, mixed with the cooked wheatberries and shredded Colby jack cheese, cracked an egg on top and stuck the whole thing under the broiler for about 10 minutes, making sure the egg whites were fully cooked.

Wow, was this filling.  As my mother-in-law says, it really stuck to my ribs!
