Wheat Grass Powder

I had my first wheat grass shot at Liquid Earth a couple weeks ago and I'm not going to pretend that it was easy getting it down. Regardless of the taste (which really wasn't that bad), I know how wonderful it is for you and I would like to integrate wheat grass juice into my diet. So, when I saw a packet of Amazing Grass Wheat Grass Powder at Whole Foods yesterday, I decided to pick it up. I've been making a smoothie everyday a few hours after juicing, so I decided to add the powder while blending my daily smoothie. The end product is pictured above. I could taste the difference in the smoothie, but it was still enjoyable (I am trying to develop a wheat grass palette).

I have decided to move away from fruit smoothies. They appeal too much to my affinity for sugar and I find myself becoming addicted to them. Until I get my Vitamix and start blending some serious veggie smoothies, I think I'll stick to my green juice:) I'm learning about how my mind reacts to my diet and I can recognize when I'm developing an unhealthy relationship with certain foods. Too much of anything isn't a good thing. I am committed to developing a diet that consists of foods that I enjoy consuming in moderation.

I've read that you can get used to the taste of anything in 14 days. It takes time for your taste buds to adjust, but they do. It always makes me feel better about trying new things.

Not sure if you saw that Debbie over at the forum started selling some super fantastic wheatgrass powder at cost... she signed up to be a distributor but is passing along the savings and just charging what it costs her bc she was so exited to share with folks. I ordered some from her and I'm loving it!! I either put in my smoothie or in my green juice in the am. Let me know if you want me to point you to her info. Hugs
