365 Raw: Day 79 with “Wheatgrass”

wheatgrassI’ve wanted a wheatgrass juicer for a little bit now, but I don’t have one yet. While in the health food store the other day, the Husband spotted some frozen wheatgrass juice. We thought we’d give it a try so I mixed it in with my smoothie this morning. Personally, I don’t like the taste of it, so I prefer to have it with something. My green smoothie really masks the smell and flavor – thank goodness.

I found this information on the benefits of wheat grass. If only half of it is true then it’s worth it to add it to my diet. I’d much rather drink an ounce or two of this juice than sit down and eat two pounds of greens (one pound takes me about an hour).
