This Farro Salad with Butternut and Avocado is hearty, toothsome, and nutritious. It makes a satisfying lunch for home, work, or school. Also deliciously healthy for dinner.
Happy New Year, Everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season. It seems to zoom by in mere nanoseconds every year.
Here we are, back to the routine of backpacks and lunch boxes and all that jazz.
Despite the blanket of snow on the ground, it only takes one look at the gym parking lot to know it must be January.
I’m not big on resolutions and have zero plans to suddenly kick it at the gym 7 days a week. But I did kick off the new year being sorta kinda physical.
Not to be outdone by all the boys, I held nothing back on the sledding hills and even got into some serious winter hiking. Hi, it’s truly me the freeze baby who just said that.
The winter hiking gig in frigid MN is pretty ridiculous, but it’s not the best part.
I time-warped back to the 80’s by donning blades and rocking out at the rollerskating rink. Complete with disco strobe lights and speakers hollering 1978’s Y.M.C.A. #majorthrowback
People were busting out the dance moves. I’m not that good. Yet.
Since we’re chatting New Year exercise, let’s bring on the healthy food.
This Farro Salad with Butternut and Avocado is hearty, satisfying, full of all the good stuff, and none of the bad.
The chewy farro gratifies the carbo craving. Roasted butternut squash, beets, and avocado bring rustic richness to the dish. Kale or spinach gives you the greens, and walnuts or pecans lend crunch.
It’s absolutely delicious and won’t leave you feeling deprived. At all.
Here’s to a new year full of things new and old.
Bring on the strobe lights.
