Back On Track Wheat Berry and Bean Salad

Back On Track Wheat Berry and Bean Salad

I deemed that this week is officially my Get Back On Track Week!

Ingredients

  • Over the past few weeks, my eating, exercise, and home life/work routines have been all over the place.
  • Wait, who am I kidding, my life has been all over the place since September actually!
  • My goal for the next few days is to get organized and get back on track, hopefully achieving a nice balance once again. I absolutely love the last week of the year to get organized for the new year ahead. This week, I will also be talking about my goals for 2011 and I will be going over last year’s goals to see how I did.
  • Many of you expressed interest in the salad that my mother-in-law made, so I thought today would be a great time to do a recipe post on a healthy salad that makes for a great ‘getting back on track’ dish! I am just in love with this salad. It is in my Top 5 all-time favourite salads for sure.
