Freekeh Chicken Bowl

With a nutty, smoky flavor, freekeh is the bacon of whole grains.

It has more protein than quinoa and double the fiber, and it delivers the same vision-protecting antioxidant duo (lutein and zeaxanthin) found in leafy greens.

Not only is this bowl packed full of protein, fiber and antioxidants, it bursts with flavor!
