What is Wheatgrass...

Wheatgrass...the new rage. You find it in smoothie shops, health-food stores and about every trendy restaurant around. Why the hype???

Here are a few reasons many people believe wheatgrass is the most amazing thing since sliced bread! Wheatgrass can be “juiced” in a juicer to make wheat grass juice. Wheatgrass advocates claim that wheatgrass provides about 30 enzymes, and just 1 oz. of juice is nutritionally equivalent to consuming 2 ½ pounds of vegetables! Wheatgrass juice is believed to provide all the vitamins and minerals and amino acids that we need as humans!

Wheatgrass contains large quantities of cholorophyll, vitamin A, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulphur, cobalt, and zinc. When chlorophyll is taken into the human body, it is believed to help build red blood cells and lower blood pressure, while also stimulating healthy tissue growth. This magnificent juice is believed to carry away toxins from the blood, improve digestion, reduce body odor, improve your complexion, decrease cravings, increase metabolism and may even help fight many types of cancer. Is it a miracle juice? Some experts think so!

For more information about wheatgrass check out this product (completely unrelated to me) at sweetwheat.com it is freeze-dried wheat grass...stay tuned and you can win a week's worth of this amazing product!!! I've tried it out and I really like it and if it does all it is supposed to do...WHY NOT GIVE IT A TRY???


  1. How do you grow wheat grass? And can you do anything with it besides juice it? And by the way I noticed your counter went up by 100 hits in just one day. Crazy!!

  2. Funny you should ask...I am planning to do a day-by-day instruction segment on growning wheat grass and I started sprouting it this morning! When I grow it, I don't have a wheatgrass juicer, so I throw it into smoothies and blend it. A juicer is on my wish list!!!

  3. I would be interested in learning. Thanks for the info.
