It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

I have um

100 pounds of cleaned wheat. Not flour, but actual wheat berries. Had to buy it, it was $15 for the entire 100 pounds.

Any suggestions or ideas on how to use it?

So far I've come up with boiling it and using it instead of oatmeal. Boiling it and using it instead of or mixing it into rice. Adding it to soups. Cracking it up in the coffee grinder and sprinkling on salads for crunch factor.

Borderline symptom of the day: curiouscurious

Soak it for a couple of days to sprout and add to salads. You can also make pilaf from wheat sprouts. Rejuvelac can also be made from wheat berries, which is excellent for digestive health.

Shred it! *bouncebounce*

find someone nearby with a home grain mill (attachment on a mixer, or a hand one) and get some fresh whole wheat flour? Also, seconding in the sprout concept. sprouted grain bread is insanely healthy and quite yummy. (take a look at ezekiel bread online)

ACK! Poison! *runs and hides from the evil wheat* :D

Ya know, my celiac SISTER gave me ideas. SHE didn't run and hide from the wonderful wheat ;)

Wuss! Here, have a bran muffin, your doctor says it won't hurt ya! ;)


I'd (and do) use it where I might use rice, though it cooks differently and has a very different taste and texture-- it's Good that way. In particuloar, you might try using it in pilaf/pilau.

And there's always frumenty.

Frumenty? :)


It's creamy, sweet, and lovely, THE best dessert I have ever had! It's a ukranian I think- hubby's grandma makes it
