October is Women's Health Month
Food for Thought
Two hours later you're sitting at your desk, and all you can think about is that apple fritter that's in the lobby coffee shop. You saw it this morning as you walked in. You could have sworn it winked at you.
So you play a game with yourself. If it's still there, it's destiny. You have to have it. If it's not there, it's just the universe telling you that you didn't need it anyway. And 30 minutes later, you've stuffed your face with the sugary pastry, in a shame spiral. Sound familiar?
If you want to avoid the above scenario, try adding grains to your salad. The addition of a grain helps you stay full for longer. Farro is an Italian grain that has more fiber and protein than rice and is much like barley, quinoa, and wheat berries. It has a nutty flavor and a toothsome texture. This month's Thrivey recipe is Baked Farro Mediterranean Salad, which uses an oven rather than a stovetop method of cooking the farro. It's super easy and a batch can last all week! The Greek dressing makes enough for leftovers and it's a great addition to all sorts of tasty salads and such. Good-bye apple fritter!
