The Wheatgrass Made Me Do It

After baking today, I had a photoshoot with the goods!

Fun times!

I’m quite pooped from baking and packaging all day long. I am going to take the night off work me thinks.

Speed Work is Tough On The Bod

I’m so stiff from the 10k speed run yesterday! Like I said, speed work is much harder on the body than distance training. My entire body is stiff today (much like it felt after my two races). Speed training really taxes the body and immune system. I think I will do some light walking tonight to get the blood flowing.

To make my insides smile (and my outsides cringe), I tried my first shot of 100% pure and fresh wheatgrass juice today.

Wheatgrass juice and broccoli sprout juice have been shown to be anti-carcinogenic (prevent and fight cancer), among other things like boosting the immune system.

I ordered this from the natural food co-op where I purchase all of my bakery goods. It has to be refrigerated and I was happy to see that it arrived very cold.

I got the Wheatgrass juice:

And Broccoli Sprout Juice:

I decided to do it like a champ and take the shot straight down.

It was neon green! And very thin. I guess I am used to thick green monsters but this was simply juice as the name says.

The taste?

I’m not going to lie, this wasn’t very good. That’s why I did it in shot form (I poured it into a shot glass so it would come out faster). But to my surprise it had a very light sweetness to it. I could see this stuff growing on me in a weird way.

As I stood there in the kitchen with my shot of wheatgrass, it occurred to me, with a chuckle, how weird I truly am.

Cheers to glowing health! ;)

What’s the weirdest thing you have done in the name of health? What is the strangest food, drink, or supplement you have taken? What was it like?

I grew up with a father who adored wheatgrass. He grows his own trays and juices it and everything. Now I work at Booster Juice where we sell it and I’m trying to get into the habit of taking some daily. Not the best tasting, I agree, but it’s just so good for you!!!

I did a wheatgrass shot once from Jamba juice … ugh. I was sick about 30 minutes later. But I’ve had the wheatgrass powder from Amazing grass, and that didn’t make me sick. Go figure.

I drink wheat and barley grass juice and sometimes oat grass juice. If I don’t feel like putting up with the taste I simply do like the alcohol enthusiasts do and create a mixed drink. Pour a shot of wheatgrass juice into a glass of apple juice of something. It goes down a lot easier. It’s better than skipping it.
