This salad has been on my mind for quite some time. It's something I can buy at my grocery store, but making it at home is so much simpler than waiting in line at the deli counter. So, today I pulled out the package of wheatberries and read the instructions on how to cook them.
The key components to making this super tasty and healthy is adding the dried cranberries and slivered almonds. Just a touch of sweetness and extra crunch take simple wheatberries a notch higher than they were before you started.
One last word on motivation... I love this one! (found it on Pinterest via Kristi). Using this as my mantra, I am scheduling my workouts for the coming week and will work on making them a habit!
