Top chewy farro with bananas, walnuts, and dried cranberries.
Stir chopped apple, cinnamon, brown sugar, and raisins into partly cooked old fashioned oatmeal.
Continue cooking until the apple is tender. Top with toasted nuts.

Whole grains can be gluten free:

If you need to avoid gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley, you can still eat whole grains.
Look for quinoa, millet, buckwheat, and amaranth instead.
Even if you do not have gluten problems, try a variety of whole grains, such as brown rice, wild rice,
bulgur wheat, oatmeal, and spelt. Each offers different nutrients.
