Chili can take many forms, but I think you'll like this version. Vegan wheat berry and black bean chili has a nice texture and wonderful flavor. It's also good for you. As always, use the ingredients you like best for this dish. It's easy to swap out black beans for pinto beans, to omit the green bell peppers or to toss in some diced carrots.
Since wheat berries are whole grains, put them in your "good carb" category. Good carbohydrates are complex carbohydrates, meaning it takes longer for your body to break them down. That means they give you more energy, and they keep you feeling full longer.
I like to cook extra wheat berries to use later for other meals (think about heating them in the morning with some milk of your choice and fresh or dried fruit, or adding them to salads or to steamed veggies). You can keep cooked wheat berries in the fridge for about a week.
