Happy New Year! I hope you had a fabulous holiday season and that 2017 is going to be amazing for you. It’s certainly going to be amazing over here. We have so many delicious things planned.

We’re kicking 2017 off in a healthy way because we’re guessing that you, like us, did some indulging in the past month and are thinking about ways to get a bit healthier. We’re focusing on farro, an ancient grain that is as delicious as it is healthy. It’s easy and fairly quick-cooking also, making it an simple way to slide in some health.

In the two weeks ahead we’ll be telling you what farro is and how to cook it using three different methods. Then we have a whole bunch of recipes for you to try, from a tabouleh, to a farro fried “rice” and everything in between. We think you’re going to love adding farro to your life and can’t wait to hear what you think.

We’ll have something new and full of farro fun for you every day for two weeks. Join us on our farro journey by visiting our Farro Topic Page daily. Or you can subscribe to our weekly newsletter to get the links to our most recent posts, which, for the next 14 days, will be all about your newest favorite food (yes, I mean farro! Woot!).

Now, let’s get grainy!
