Freaking out over freekeh? (Ughhhh … sorry … just had to go there!)

Although freekeh is a pretty common ingredient for our readers in places like Australia, it’s still relatively new on the superfoods scene here in America, and we’ve had so many people tell us that they’re scouring their local stores, excited to give it a try!

Hi, Deb! So excited for you to try freekeh! It’s super tasty and, of course, super healthy! You’ll have to let us know what you think! 😀 ~Amy
I have had freekah one time and loved it. I plan to make it part of my diet especially after finding out how nutritious it is.
Oh, I’m so glad you’re working more freekeh into your repertoire, Sheila – and I hope all these freekeh recipe ideas really help you out! Besides all that awesome freekeh nutrition goin’ on, I think what I love best about it is the wonderful texture – so satisfying! Enjoy – and I’d love to hear what recipes you try and like the very best! 😀 ~Shelley
