For salad:

(vary amount of ingredients depending on how hungry you are)

.5 to 1 cup cooked wheat berries *

1 to 2 handfuls thinly sliced cabbage

.25 cup sliced raw, red onion

.5 cup olives (I like kalamata)

.5 cup sliced carrots

half of a raw red bell pepper, sliced thin

.25 cup raw almonds

Dressing:

3 tbsp. hummus *

juice from one lemon or lime

1 tbsp. agave or honey

.25 tsp. chili powder

Toss all ingredients and prepared dressing into a large tupperware container with lid sealed, and shake the crap out of it, until salad is well coated. Eat and be well.

* For those who are raw or gluten free eaters, wheat berries won't work. I use them to make a complete protein with the hummus in the dressing.... An alternative grain or perhaps a nut-meal could be substituted, although the protein combo won't exist anymore. For those who can't use hummus, I have made this dressing before using miso paste instead of hummus and added a splash of extra virgin olive oil for richness; still yummy.

i don't follow a strict raw diet, so i cook them because i like the texture of them cooked- but i'm sure soaked or sprouted wheat berries would work well too.

Raw grains whether sprouted or not are not digestable.

I believe that raw grains are not digestible?

Why would you cook the wheatberries??? or did you mean soaked instead of cooked ...
