Now that the kids are back in school, I wake up every morning at 5:30 a.m. to get my workout in. I love the 30 minutes that I have to myself before the craziness of the morning routine begins, BUT I am not going to say that it is always easy to get up that early in the morning. There are definitely days that I want to hit the snooze button and stay in bed. That is why I am so excited to have Jennifer Voss as my Fit Mom Feature Guest Blogger! She has 5 awesome tips to help you get up and workout.
Last week I posted about a new ancient grain that I tried called Freekeh. I really like this product and I have been experimenting with a few recipes. I came up with a delicious Greek Freekeh Salad and I wanted to share it with you! Continue reading
Hmmmm….What?!? That’s right, I tried Freekeh and it is one of my new favorite grains! You may be wondering what Freekeh is. Freekeh is an ancient roasted grain that has an awesome nutty, chewy texture. What’s more, Freekeh has up to 3 times the amount of fiber and protein as brown rice and is naturally low in sodium and it’s vegan! Not to mention that it is certified organic, Non GMO, and grown in the USA.
So what do you do with Freekeh? So far I have used it in my chicken stir fry and made a Mexican salad with it. Yum! It would also be great in soups, pilafs, salads, chilis, stews etc…The possibilities are endless!
