Did you know that I used to be vegan? For three years. I started eating nonvegan foods at the end of 2004, but I still appreciate many vegan dishes and treats.
When I saw Wheatgrass on clearance with the salads at Kroger this week, I couldn't resist picking some up. It's been ages since I've done a wheatgrass shot.
Wheatgrass is proclaimed as a superfood; many believe it is instrumental in fighting disease, particularly cancer.
All I know is that after you take a shot of it, you feel a delicious energy.
So I dusted off our juicer. Which hasn't been put to use in a very long time. In fact, I wasn't sure I remembered how to use it.
The wheat grass got a hair cut.
Ideally, wheatgrass wouldn't have so much yellow in it. I supposed that's why it was marked down. Must've been raised in a greenhouse - it is January after all.
I didn't have enough for a full shot, so I added in 1 carrot and 1 kiwi and juiced those too.
It's certainly an acquired taste.
Kind of reminds me of horse breath.
And mowed summer lawns.
Let the energy begin!
