Omitting the bulgur is an option, but swapping in germinated almonds is far more interesting. We'll get to the recipe, but first let's briefly give wheat the benefit of the doubt.

I'm now on a plant based, gluten free, sugar free, high nutrient, anti-inflammatory, juice infused, smoothie obsessed, rotation diet.
