Do you love doing shots but want to be healthy? We have a solution… Do wheat grass shots!
This gorgeous emerald green superfood beverage will make you feel SO good* that you won’t even want tequila shots anymore! Let’s be honest, tequila is fun for a few hours, but then your skin looks like a raisin by the end of the night, your sleep gets disrupted, your digestion gets wonky, your liver starts storing fat, and the next day, you probably will need to skip your morning workout because you feel so crappy. That sends you on a downward spiral towards lethargy, aging, missing good times, and generally not being happy with your body, or anything else for that matter.
On the other hand, wheatgrass makes you feel happy, not crappy! In a nutshell, wheat grass shots make you strong, energized, and gorgeous! Check out these gorgeous healthy people trying out wheatgrass shots…!
Some of the many benefits of wheatgrass shots include:
- Cleanses blood and liver of toxins and heavy metals.
- Improves digestion.
- Fortifies blood.
- Nourishes your whole body with a multitude of minerals, vitamins, all 20 amino acids, and chlorophyll.
- Oxygenates blood and improves endurance and fitness.
- Rich in antioxidants and enzymes that reduce inflammation and free radical damage.
Beauty bonus! The sum total of all the nutrients in wheat grass make their way to your skin, giving it a healthy glow, and also help clear up skin issues like acne, psoriasis, and eczema. There is anecdotal evidence that it also helps to prevent gray hair. There may not be a more beautifying beverage out there!
Having a 2 oz shot of wheat grass is equivalent to 5 lbs of produce! You could eat salads all day long and not get all the nutrition in a small shot of wheatgrass.
If this sounds good, but you still want your tequila from time to time, do a wheatgrass shot before you go out for tequila, and again the next morning to detox your liver and energize your body.
You can get wheat grass shots at health food stores, restaurants such as Life Alive, or mix the powder with water. If you are inspired to make wheat grass to be a way of life, you can easily grow it and juice it at home. Consume it ideally within 15 minutes of juicing to get the maximum nutrient density.
* Note, in very rare instances, the intense nutrition of wheat grass shots can cause nausea. It passes quickly. As you get used to wheat grass, that will not continue to occur.
