Day 18: Splendor in the Grass


Wheatgrass gets a tough wrap. But it’s fun to grow and packs the nutrients. The nutritional profile of 1 ounce is often compared to 1 pound of greens. I’m not sure if that’s completely accurate, but from benefits I feel almost instantly when I drink it, I wouldn’t be surprised. The following recipe masks the extremely bitter taste. Promise.

Wheatgrass Juice
1-2 ounce wheatgrass
1/2 inch ginger
1 cup blueberries
1 cucumber

Wheat grass is chock full of chlorophyll- a compound known for detox and renewal as well as vitamins A, B, C and E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and enzymes.
