Do you have those days when you really wish you were somewhere warm and cozy? If so, this recipe is for you!
Blend three ripe bananas, a cup of frozen mango, a scoop of your favorite plantbased protein powder (optional!), a teaspoon wheat grass powder, two-three cups of spinach, a dash of turmeric (very anti-inflammatory), cacao, a tablespoon of flax seeds, two tablespoon of pumpkin seeds.
According to studies, a serving of wheatgrass is estimated to contain over 100 different elements needed by man, as chlorophyll.
Wheatgrass is rich in the following nutrients:
- Antioxidants like flavonoids and phenolic acid
- Electrolytes including magnesium and calcium
- Amino Acids
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
Chlorophyll, on its own, is the substance that gives wheatgrass its signature, bright green color. Like other nutrient-dense greens, the chlorophyll acts like an antioxidant to reduce free radical damage, detoxifies the body and strengthens the blood. You can buy it in a liquid form and use it as a supplement.
All greens contain chlorophyll but if you are not a veggie person and still try to consume them regularly for their health benefits – you can obtain your minimum daily intake of vitamins and minerals only from a teaspoon of wheatgrass powder (it is that potent!)
Hope you like this recipe and you stay warm during the cold season!
