A great way to start your day: Wheatgrass



One of my favorite ways to start my day is go to the local juice place after my morning workout and get a shot of wheatgrass. It gives me such an amazing feeling over all well-being. I can barely articulate the feeling it gives me (kind of like a yoga high).


What is Wheatgrass?

Wheatgrass is grown from the wheat seed (wheat berries), which is the whole kernel of the wheat grain. Wheatgrass provides a concentrated amount of nutrients, including iron, calcium, magnesium, amino acids, chlorophyll, and vitamins A, C and E.
