Should I add wheatgrass to my smoothies?

Don’t forget the wheatgrass!

Why not! Wheatgrass is nutrient-rich young grass and though it’s in the wheat family you don’t have to be concerned about gluten or having allergic reactions to it. 

Though fresh juiced is always prefered you can take wheatgrass as a tablet, capsule or add it  to your smoothie in a powered or liquid form.out It’s sold as a dietary supplement in tablet, capsule, powder and liquid forms.

Wheatgrass provides a concentrated amount of nutrients and is an excellent source of vitamins A, B, C, E, K, and glutathione, along with iron, magnesium, calcium and 17 amino acids eight are considered essential, meaning your body cannot produce them and you must obtain them from food sources

 Wheatgrass is made up of more than 70% chlorophyll. This green plant blood is only one molecule different from human blood  and is associated with many health benefits. 

My twenty plus years experience of working with thousands of clients has shown that wheatgrass’s nutrient rich contents  boosts immunity, kills harmful bacteria in the digestive system, and rids the body of toxic wastes.

I have seen wheatgrass’s positive effects on treatment for cancer and chemotherapy side effects, cirrhosis, anemia, diabetes, infections internal and external, ulcerative colitis, and joint pain, among other dozens of health concerns. However, there are few research studies about wheatgrass, so it’s difficult to assess such health claims.

Wheatgrass is safe to drink as long as you understand that in soe instances it  may cause nausea. This doesn’t usually happen, but it may. If you feel nauseated after drinking the wheatgrass, cutback on the amount you drink, do this until the nausea stops, then slowly increase the amount you’re drinking.

 Most of us drink wheatgrass that is grown in soil  and we drink it raw with a lemon chaser, but with the popularity of smoothies and the hectic schedules most people keep we are seeing more of our clients and friends simply adding wheatgrass to their morning or afternoon smoothies. It’s important to make sure the wheatgrass you are drinking is not contaminated with bacteria or mold. The best way to insure that is safe to drink is to grow your own, or buy it fresh from a trusted well thought of source.

If you’re pregnant or breast-feeding, talk to your health care provider before drinking wheatgrass.

I believe wheatgrass is amazing and can play a great part in ensuring your health, healing  and happiness, but remember it isn’t a miracle cure and should be an adjunct to a healthy diet that includes plenty of raw fresh fruits and vegetables.

Being Vegetarian Compared to Raw Foodist

Is there a difference between vegetarian and raw food diets? A raw foodist is a vegetarian, but one who generally is not going to cook his vegetables or fruits. A vegetarian is someone who simply doesn’t eat meat, fish or poultry, but only consumes vegetables, pasta, and rice. A vegetarian might eat meatless spaghetti sauce or order onion rings in a restaurant. (Not the healthiest choice, but sometimes it’s hard to find something to eat in a restaurant if you’re vegetarian – even harder if you’re a raw foodist.)

RELATED: What Does It Mean To Eat Raw Foods?

There are different categories of vegetarians, like vegans, or fruitarians, and raw foodist is a category of vegetarianism. We haven’t seen anything about sushi being considered a raw food, but it is. Raw food, though, generally means eating raw, uncooked fruits, vegetables, dried fruits, seaweeds, etc.

But to be a raw food purist means raw broccoli, not steamed. To a vegetarian, someone committed to not eat meat or fish or animal products, steamed vegetables are just as good, although everyone would agree that steaming can take out nutrients from foods, rendering them less nutritious. A vegetarian might consume dairy or egg products; however a vegan will not consume any animal products at all. And a raw foodist is a vegan who consumes only uncooked, unprocessed raw foods.

Proponents of the raw diet believe that enzymes are the life force of a food and that every food contains its own perfect mix. These enzymes help us digest foods completely, without relying on our body to produce its own cocktail of digestive enzymes.

It is also thought that the cooking process destroys vitamins and minerals and that cooked foods not only take longer to digest, but they also allow partially digested fats, proteins and carbohydrates to clog up our gut and arteries.

Followers of a raw diet cite numerous health benefits, including:

  • increased energy levels
  • improved appearance of skin
  • improved digestion
  • weight loss
  • reduced risk of heart disease
