Wheat grass juice… Here I am, talking about green stuff once again. What can I say?! I love my green juices, green smoothies, green soups, green salads. “Green” represents life, nature, Earth, eco-living . all that I am about. 

To be honest, wheat grass juice is not my favorite thing on this Planet , but the health benefits are worth drinking a shot of it (you don’t need more than that) every single morning before you have your first bite. And here is why:

  • wheat grass is superior to other veggies in its content of B12,
  • wheatgrass contains a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, essential fatty acids and enzymes.
  • more energy and better sleep,
  • increased mental clarity,
  • improved eyesight and night vision (I experience this big time!  my eyesight is getting better the more I drink wheat grass juice),
  • it contains 92 minerals needed by the body,
  • its oxygenate your body,
  • contains 20+ amino acids,
  • it slows down aging process,
  • skin gets clear and has that healthy glow.
 

I buy wheatgrass at Wholefoods. Its organic and fresh, the packaging always says the expiration date, so I know when it’s fresh or not. You can grow your own wheat grass at home. I know some people do, and it suppose to be “super easy” but I’m not that good with plants (my orchids never blossom, no matter what I do).  

In case you wondering how it tastes, it is sweet. Perhaps, too sweet, so I always add lemon. But It’s definitely not horrible. Plus, some people love the idea of a shot.  Cheers!

 

 LOVE, VAL
