Yummy Whole Grain Wheat Pilaf (Wheat Berry)

I made this tonight and we thought it was great. Even my 20-month old daughter LOVED it and that's saying something. I know a lot of people want more whole foods in their diet but have no clue what to do with them. Whole grains can get pretty intimidating. This is a healthy, whole grain recipe that's easy as can be. I've listed the fruit and nuts at the end as optional because this is good with or without those ingredients. I like it without. You can also add some grilled chicken or shrimp and make it an entree. Let your mood dictate how you make it. :) Also, I entered this under the Kid Pleaser category only because my picky 20-month old loved this so much! :D
