An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
Don’t freak out if you:
A) Don’t know what wheat grass is
B) Know what it is, but would rather eat someone else’s finger nail clippings than try it
C) You think grass is for hippies and bovines
D) Are willing to try wheat grass but don’t know where to get it
Wheat grass is not wheat! It’s a low-carb, low cal, alkaline, green, gorgeous, nutrient-packed blade of health, and can be bought in the powdered form or in the actively growing form (both pictured here) at your local health foods store. Think of it as an amazing vitamin source with healing properties. A shot of wheat grass can cure most hangovers!
If you’re a wheat grass chicken, you could theoretically leave it out of this smoothie recipe, or you could seek it out and let the healing begin!
