What is all the talk about Farro

What is all the talk about Farro and why has it taken the US by storm?

Farro is a type of wheat often referred to as an “ancient grain,”.   I consider it one of the true healing foods.

Farro originated in the Fertile Crescent, (also known as the cradle of civilization) Western Asia, the Nile Valley and Nile Delta . Many cultures across the world have been eating Farro for centuries. According to Maria Speck, author of Ancient Grains for Modern Meals:  Mediterranean Whole Grain Recipes for to Barley, Farro, Kamut, Polenta, Wheat Berries & More , Americans’ mounting interest in farro got ignited by our passion for Italian food”

A Nutritional All Star

From a nutritional standpoint, farro is an all-star grain that outperforms brown rice and whole-grain pasta. Farro contains about 100 calories, packs a 3+ grams of protein and 3.5 grams of fiber into a single serving. One cannot help but be impressed by the incredible number of vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, niacin, and zinc. Farro is delicious and quite filling. I l cook up a big batch all at once, and then add it to dishes throughout the week for a quick and easy protein rich go to.
