My Farro Berry Bowl

Maybe you are familiar with quinoa and its superfood status, but have you heard of farro? Although this ancient wheat grain has been around for thousands of years, farro is only now becoming a well-known grain option. Unlike quinoa, farro is not gluten-free, but similar to its sister grain, it is packed with protein and fiber. Farro contains 7 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber per serving, and that fiber is crucial for keeping your colon healthy.

Farro is great paired with summer berries, like strawberries and blueberries. The combination of fiber, protein and vitamin A and C are ideal for a healthy and active colon. 

With each serving of this Farro Berry Bowl, you’ll enjoy at least 10 grams of fiber and 14 grams of protein!

Ingredients (Serves 3-4):

  • 1 cup farro (about 2.5 cups cooked)
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 cup strawberries, diced
  • ¾ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup mango, diced
  • ¼ cup almonds, sliced
  • 1 tbsp coconut, shredded
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

Directions:

  1. Rinse the farro and place it in a pan with 1 ½ cups of water (water should cover the grains). Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain any excess liquid.
  2. Mix the almond milk with the farro. Then transfer farro to a serving dish. Carefully stir in the fruit, and then sprinkle the coconut & chia seeds on top.
