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.
Some experts claim that wheatgrass contains over 100 different elements needed by man, as chlorophyll. Chlorophyll 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.
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!)
Wheatgrass is rich in the following nutrients: (1)
- Antioxidants like flavonoids and phenolic acid
- Electrolytes including magnesium and calcium
- Amino Acids
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
