Joy can be real only if people look upon their life as a service, and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happiness.
- Leo Tolstoy
Wheat berry salad is another favorite dish of mine. It's so easy to prepare and full of fiber, protein and nutrition. It's low in fat too. I love the consistency of wheat berries, They're chewy with a lightly nutty flavor. Wheat berries are really versatile! They can be paired with many fruits or vegetables fruits or vegetables and served either hot or cold.
I often snack on it during the day or take it to work for lunch. Sometimes I have it as a warm, hearty cereal. You can find wheat berries at an health food store or grocery store.
