Given that we can't go out, let's do our best to bring in the colors spring is giving us.
Today I prepared a perfect meal for a balanced diet: bulgur with veggies, scrambled eggs and ham.
Let's know more about that "bulgur wheat". Known for its leading role in tabbouleh, a lemony Middle Eastern grain salad with tomatoes, onions, and herbs, bulgur wheat has been around for at least 4,000 years. Arguably the world's first convenience food, bulgur production originated in the Mediterranean region, but it has spread far and wide. Bulgur remains one of the easiest to cook and most versatile of the whole grains.
It is an edible cereal grain made from dried, cracked wheat — most commonly durum wheat but also other wheat species. It is parboiled, or partially cooked, so that it can be prepared relatively quickly. When cooked, it has a similar consistency to couscous or quinoa.
What are the benefits of bulgur wheat?
In addition to vitamins and minerals, whole grains supply important plant-based antioxidants and phytonutrients that lower inflammation and prevent free radical damage. In addition, studies find that whole-grain intake can be protective against health conditions like cancer, heart disease, digestive disorders, diabetes and obesity.
