Whole Grain Tabbouleh

The whole grains in tabbouleh come from bulgur, which is made from whole hard wheat. This whole wheat is very different than the wheat-based products we often buy at the grocery store: When wheat is refined and processed — primarily into wheat flour — nearly all of its nutritional value is stripped away. In fact, “more than half of wheat’s B vitamins, 90 percent of the vitamin E, and virtually all of the fiber” are lost. When wheat is refined, its nutritious bran and germ are removed and we’re left only with a starch that’s digested as a simple sugar, causing our blood sugar levels to spike as if we’d eaten candy!  Incorporate some healthy whole grains into your diet — and make good use of the delicious cucumbers and tomatoes that are in season right now! — with Mikaela’s tasty tabouleh recipe from the Blooming Glen Farm blog.
