  • Should I be eating more bulgar

    Hi y'all! Is bulgar something I should be adding to my diet? Is it good for you or even easy to cook with? I've seen it in a lot of healthy recipes and I'm working on trying to eat healthier carbs, so I'm wondering if bulgar is the way to go and even if it tastes good. Any information from those who have had experience with it would be great

    Absolutely! It's very nutritious and it tastes good in a lot of different types of recipes. If you find you like it then it will give you just one more way to add variety and nutrient to your diet. It doesn't mean that it needs to replace something else but you can just add it to your mix of meal ingredient options and then you'll automatically have more variety for enjoyment and nutrition.

        Oh my gosh I love Moroccan recipes too! I find they're also very nutritious. When I started losing weight I actually began making a lot more of this style of cuisine. Now I'm dying to go visit Morocco and eat some of their authentic cuisine lol!

          Really? I've never heard of Bulgar before. What is it? A carb?

            It's a carb in that it's a grain. It's made out of wheat. It's essentially cracked wheat. So it's not gluten free in case you're concerned about that sort of thing. I tend to prepare it for similar kinds of meals that I'd otherwise make with couscous. That said, I know that it goes well with middle eastern and north african foods quite well. It's a food that is easy to experiment with. You could probably use it in place of rice in certain dishes, too, depending on what you're making. It's just another option and it tastes great.
