Tabbouleh, a traditional Middle Eastern dish, offers dense nutrition and bold, delicious flavors. For the millions of people avoiding wheat, however, tabbouleh's inclusion of bulgur spoils the fun.

At times over the past 13 years poo has had much more than a second thought from me. That and the pain I was under on a daily basis, muted on good days, and so sharp and debilitating on bad days.
