Unh, get your freekeh on. Sorry, Missy Elliot, we just had to. What is it? Well, it's basically a fancy name for whole wheat. Freekeh is also spelled "farik" or "frik" sometimes. Is it a new food? Not really — it's actually an ancient grain. Freekeh is one of Joel Harper's favorite snacks. If you like bulgur and farro, try freekeh; you can use it in much the same way by working it into a healthy salad.
