I get on kicks, and right now it’s wheat berries. I wasn’t totally satisfied with my last wheat berry lunch, so I fiddled around with it and came up with a new combination this week: wheat berries with green beans, avocado, almonds, thyme, and a creamy dressing (vinaigrette with mayonnaise and sour cream whisked in). The salad was healthy and its flavor had its merits (the beans and dressing made great friends), but my takeaway from this wheat berry kick is that a little goes a long way.

If I were to take these salads to the next level, I’d cut back on the wheat berries and add greens and more vegetables in their place. These salads were preachy—I want a salad that’s healthy but joyful. The beauty of making your kids’ lunches is that there’s plenty of time to iterate—hundreds of lunches per year! For dessert, I tucked in a few dried mango slices from Whole Foods and worked to clean out the remains of their Easter stash.
