When I lived in Chicago I used to be a bartender. Every night I’d walk to work and on my way I’d stop into a local juice bar and buy a shot of wheat grass. I love the smell of fresh grass, so the taste was never off-putting to me, but I did it because it gave me such great boost of energy for my shifts. I never thought much about what else it was doing for my body, and sadly when I moved out of the city I stopped doing wheat grass shots.
Flash forward 10+ years and a company called PINES – The Wheat Grass People contacted me asking if I wanted to try their product. I readily accepted and was excited to incorporated more greens into my diet. Since then I have been drinking wheat grass in the morning, or in my afternoon protein smoothie. With my husband deployed, my new job, and training for the half marathon it was just the boost in energy that my body needed.
There are so many benefits to incorporating wheat grass into your daily routine. Just one teaspoonful of PINES Wheat Grass powder, dissolved in water or juice, provides the same amount of nutrition as a serving of deep-green, leafy vegetables. But beyond that there are so many benefits for your body. I love that it is a complete source of protein!
Like I mentioned, I’ve never disliked the taste of wheat grass or anything green. So I like to warm up a cup of water and add my wheat grass to it like a tea. I also add lemon or ginger therapeutic grade oil for taste. I realize though that this might be too intense for some. You can also mix it into juice or even a smoothie!
This Gingerbread Smoothie recipe is SO delicious you won’t know there is wheat grass in it!
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 banana
- 1 T Almond Butter
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 drop ginger oil (more about my favorite therapeutic essential oils here)
- 1 tsp fresh ground ginger
- 2-3 dates (can substitute honey or maple syrup)
- 1 tsp [url:2]Pines Wheat Grass
- Mix all ingredients in a blender until creamy.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon
I plan on continuing to use PINES wheat grass in my daily routine. I’m super happy with the product and my energy levels. Plus they are NON-GMO and organic so I know that I’m getting a quality product that is really good for my body in so many ways! I’d love to try PINE beet juice powder next. I love fresh beet juice after a run, and I’m guessing I’d love this product too!
