Grain Salads For Weekday Lunches

First Posted: 11/02/2011 12:15 pm   Updated: 08/31/2012 10:48 am


Boring lunch no more! If you're sick of the same old lunch, try a hearty grain salad. These salads are not only great to eat, they're good for you too. Since they're packed with protein and fiber, you'll have energy throughout the day and won't be ravenous in the afternoon. Grains like barley, buckwheat, quinoa, farro and wheat are made so much more interesting when they're combined with vegetables and flavorful dressings. Quickly toss together one of these recipes -- you can even used leftover roasted or grilled vegetables from dinner the night before -- and break up the monotonous lunch routine. We have a different grain salad for each day of the working week.
