I have never heard of farro but it looks great! Mmm your yogurt looks delicious too.
Im excited for you to find farro, too! I love being introduced to new kinds of grains.
I love that I see your reflection in the metal pitcher :-)
funny as i was eating greek yogourt with honey while reading about yours and it made mine that much more enjoyable!
That porridge looks incredible! I totally need to try farro!!
How come you don’t eat yogurt? Not vegan?

I’ve just found that it doesn’t usually sit well in my stomach. I used to eat it every day, but I have almost completely cut it out now.
I’m going to keep my eye out for farro! Can’t wait until you find it and share the glory with us :)
Just catching up – sounds like you had a great weekend despite the toe/knee issues! Again, jealous. Amazing how something as simple as food can change your life (I’m completing my co-op project as I type and may be a bit over-reflective)… Hope you have a safe trip home and continue with your speedy recovery. :)

Haha I love when you get over-reflective. Hope you aren’t pulling any all-nighters for the co-op project. Sooo glad to be done with it! Call me soon, we need to catch up.
Oh my goodness! YUM! Um, I want to take a bite our of your pictures! ;)
Farro is wonderful. Another good one Kashi cooked in apple juice for breakfast. The yogurt looks amazing, too. But, truthfully, the company and the water are probably what made your breakfast spectacular. Have a safe trip home.
The farro looks great. I wish it were gluten-free and not just low in gluten, because the texture you’re describing sounds heavenly!
Yes, why no yogurt?

I find that it really upsets my stomach, so I stopped eating it regularly.
No idea what farro is… I must google :)!

It is a type of wheat grain!
I’ve never had farro in a porridge like that but the way you describe it sounds delicious!
Farro is just another type of wheat and if you have a co-op near you it might be a good place to find it. Whole foods charges you waaay to much when the co-op near my parents charges 2.50 a pound. Outrageous!
MY question is, how would you make this? chop the grain up in the food processor before trying to cook it like oatmeal? I have a bag of farro sitting nicely in my cubbord.

Yes, farro is a type of grain! I looked out our co-op and couldn’t find it – the hunt continues.
Obviously I’m not sure about making it, since I haven’t tried yet, but I thought I would pulse the farro in my food processor to break it down, and then cook it like oatmeal in a bit of almond milk. Mmmmm.
