Uncooked Wheat Kernels or Wheat Berries
Ground beef and chicken costs upwards of $1.79 per pound ($1.79 is a sale price!). By substituting half of your ground beef or chicken for wheat berries... how much are you saving? If you don't want the math breakdown, just skip my rambling math equation.
45 lb bucket of wheat - $13.50 (Costco price 10/1/10)
1 lb of wheat - .30
4 cups of wheat (1 lb 12 oz) - .53 cents
4 cups of wheat makes 12 cups of cooked wheat berries
.53 divided by 12 cups - .05 each cup! (or .04416 to be exact)
Cost for one cup of cooked wheat berries - .05
That is a HUGE savings when substituting half of your ground beef or chicken for wheat berries! Don't forget about the health benefits as well!
