#GetYourFreekehOn GIVEAWAY!

 I was chosen to participate in the Freekeh Foods Campaign as part of being a Sweat Pink ambassador.  I was not compensated for this post, just sent product and coupons! All opinions are my own. 

First, I wanna give you some info about Freekeh from their website... Because I'm sure you're wondering...

Freekeh? What is that?

So glad you asked! Freekeh is an ancient roasted grain that is a great improvement to rice or other grains. It has an awesome nutty, chewy texture. We offer it organically in 3 varieties: Original, Rosemary Sage and Tamari. What's more, freekeh has up to 3 times the amount of fiber and protein as brown rice.  Freekeh is also naturally low in sodium and vegan!

Here's the legend of how freekeh came to be...

Freekeh is a process which means "to rub" in Arabic. They say, Freekeh was discovered by accident over 2.000 years ago in the  Middle East when a crop of young green wheat was set ablaze. Most farmers would sulk over their misfortune, but they rubbed off the chaff, cooked it up and "Eureka!" Freekeh was created. We're proud to offer you this tasty, nutritious ancient grain with a funny name.

So what do you do with Freekeh?

The question should be...what can't you do with Freekeh? We love it in soups, pilafs, salads, main dish, side dish, breakfast, lunch, dinner. You name it!  You can use Freekeh in any recipe that calls for rice or quinoa. There is no wrong way to "get your Freekeh on."® Fall in love with this new ancient grain and share with us your favorite way to "get your freekeh on!" 
For recipe ideas hop on over to the recipe section! There are some mouth watering healthy recipes, including lots of vegan options.


We kept dinner simple and made grilled chicken on top of Rosemary Sage Freekeh. We were pleasantly surprised at how much flavor there was in the Freekeh! It was very tasty!

We used our leftovers inside our Stuffed Peppers the next day. Forgot to snap a pic, but it was delicious too!
