Wheatgrass Juice Love


I’m a long time juicer. I had one for fruits and veggies 12 years ago that I was madly addicted to. Fast forward a bit, and I’m completely addicted to wheatgrass juice.

I was skeptical when I first gave it a try. I had heard good things for over a decade and was always curious. I finally gave in and got enough to last me 20 days, and took it reluctantly each day.

I wasn’t expecting anything. I was taking it hoping for an energy boost. I wasn’t looking to lose weight, or detox. The way I have always taken it, is a one ounce shot of pure wheatgrass juice mixed into 1 cup of cold water. It tastes exactly like iced green tea. I even love the taste. I usually take it an hour or so after lunch when I’m looking for that mid-day kick of oomph.

After 10 days of taking it, my results were undeniable. I felt completely energized, I cut my coffee consumption in half without even trying, I have more patience and am less irritable because I’m not a zombie mombie anymore, I don’t get depressed, it keeps me regular, focused…I’ve been very impressed, which is why it has remained a part of my regular diet.
