Emma Elwin is struggling to stay away from all the tasty fried food whilst in California.
Whilst we have been here in California I have been trying to stay away from fried food but without any luck. Still I have been trying to eat and drink healthy as well and luckily for me there pretty much is a juice shop on each corner here in Encinitas. This a welldoer that I love the smell of, but not so much the taste… When wheatgrass is served like this it is a lot easier to neck it! Knowing about all the benefits also makes it easier. For example, wheatgrass has twice the amount of Vitamin A as carrots and is higher in Vitamin C than oranges! It contains the full spectrum of B vitamins, as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium in a balanced ratio. Wheatgrass is a complete source of protein, supplying all of the essential amino acids, and more. It has about 20% of total calories coming from protein. This protein is in the form of poly peptides, simpler and shorter chains of amino acids that the body uses more efficiently in the blood stream and tissues.
When we get back home to Sweden I am going to try to grow my own wheatgrass!
