Green Farro Salad!

by Nicole on June 17, 2013

Morning! I have a delicious recipe to share with you today. I’ve made this recipe 2 times now, both for barbeque’s when I get sick of the usual suspects. It’s very easy to throw together and it’s very fussy. I have a big yield down below because I love leftovers of it, but feel free to half it.

I hope you had a wonderful Father’s Day yesterday!

Two more things…I’ve been on a dairy OVERLOAD lately. I used to eat minimal amounts of it because I figured out after a blood test and paying close attention to my symptoms, that when I eat too much dairy I get very itchy ski, eczema and when it’s really too much stomach troubles. I LOVE dairy…but pre-pregnancy I only had it maybe 3-4 times a week. When i got pregnant I was craving cheese, so I went with it and my eczema actually was fine. Well I’ve continued with this trend of having cheese at least once a day, whole milk in my iced coffee and a yogurt a day. My eczema and itchy skin are OUT of CONTROL. It’s really bad, so I’ve convinced myself to take a break. Even though I’m dreading it. I love dairy. [My itchy skin gets basically immediately worse after I eat it.]

I’ve done this before and I know once I clear my system out I can have it in small amounts and be okay. So that’s what I need to do. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Second thing…best body bootcamp round 6 starts today! Super psyched!

Eating anything good this weekend?

The salad looks amazing! I need to take more things like this to cookouts when I go. Sorry about the dairy. It’s good you know what to do to deal with it though. Hopefully it will go quickly!

Maybe it’s something about your pregnancy? I was never lactose intolerant until I had my first baby. Sometimes being pregnant does super weird stuff!!
