Quinoa is a super food that contains powerful health benefits; it's packed with protein, vitamins, and fiber. When paired with fresh vegetables, toasted nuts, and savory seasonings, it becomes the perfect salad for lunch or dinner (or any time of the day, really).
Barley takes longer than oatmeal to cook, so make a big batch on Sunday for quick reheating during the week. The hearty nature of this barley dish, which channels the flavors of a Turkish breakfast, makes it an equally filling option for any meal of the day.
Chewy farro -- an Italian whole grain -- is tossed with mixed greens in this colorful salad. It's flavored by two kinds of grapes that have been baked in a low oven to concentrate their sweetness and release their juices. The Concord grapes aren't seedless, but they make a beautiful garnish.
