You Are What You Eat

I have suddenly been inspired to start eating healthy. (This after polishing off a half a bag of Cheese Doodles, yuk yuk.) I was reading Cami Walker’s blog and she is going on a major health/yoga kick right now to sort out some personal issues. She shared this recipe and so am I. It sounds good to me, although I have no idea what wheat berries are. So I’ll probably stroll on down to Whole Foods this Saturday to buy the ingredients.

WHEAT BERRY CONGEE

Ingredients

  • 1 cup wheat berries
  • 3-5 cups water — start with 3 and slowly add more as needed as it evaporates
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 5 nickel-sized chunks of ginger
  • small handful of dried cranberries
  • small handful blueberries
  • 5 strawberries

Preparation

  1. Put everything in a pot.
  2. Bring to boil, stirring regularly for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low simmer and cover pot for 1-2 hours, or until wheat berries are soft.
  4. Stir regularly.
  5. It’s yummy hot, but is also good cold with rice milk.
