Wheat Grass Juice


Got a taste of this when we went to Frontera Verde Tiendesitas several months ago. It tasted like grass of course but I didn’t know that it has healing properties and it is now promoted as immune system booster.


Wheat grass refers to grass grown indoors in trays for approximately ten days and is squeezed into fresh juice.  It is used primarily for therapeutic purposes. while the 60 + day old field grown grasses are primarily used for nutritional supplements.  I don’t know how effective this juice is in treating certain ailments but it was recently featured in the program Sweet Life.

According to research, wheat grass juice is 70% chlorophyll and its chemical composition closely resembles hemoglobin.  It is said to heal tissues, help purify the liver, improve blood sugar levels and help flush out accumulated toxins.

Lately I’ve been doing readings and research on the alternative way to treat cancer and this was mentioned as one.  I got curious so I sourced for an outlet where I could buy a pack. One of my friends has been raving about it.WheatgrassI bought a pack and started with it three days ago. You can visit http://www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com/greens.htm#healing for further info.

And here’s the simple rule:

Don’t take too long to think about it. 15 books you’ve read that will always stick with you. First 15 you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Tag 15 (or more) friends, including me because I’m interested in seeing what books my friends choose.

I got tagged by Michelle, a friend from FFP.  I have more than fifteen books that I could recall right now but I don’t have the time to include  their pictures in fifteen minutes flat.  And here are my  choices in no particular order:

1. Markings – Dag Hammarskjold
2. Seasons in the Sun – Rod McKuen
3. All I Really Need to Know I learned in Kindergarten – Robert Fulghum
4. The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint Exupery
5. The Prophet – Kahlil Gibran
6. Tuesdays With Morrie – Mitch Albom
7.  Letting Go – Morrie Schwartz
8. The Heart of Loving – Eugene Kennedy
