Candice’s Favorite Things: Wheatgrass Shots

Wheatgrass, a name we all know and often fear. Just say the word to a close friend and see what happens to their facial expression. Something similar to a post-lemon-sucking pucker will overcome their usually quit lovely face. Yup it tastes like ass, even I will admit that. So why do I continue to take my 2 oz green shot morning after morning? There are many reasons, too many to share in one daily blog, so I will summarize with colourful commentary.

Wheatgrass cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris (aka poop). Anything negative, you are feeling usually stems from something off in your gut. So keep that sucker clean. Get a colonic, drink your wheatgrass and eat food that doesn’t suck.

This green shot of yuck stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. Blood is in you to live. Blood loss equals life loss, so doesn’t it make sense to keep that vampire bait flowing healthy, and flowing well?


This is our wheatgrass juicer… it’s fun to play with


We live in a world surrounded by crap. Crap in the air, crap in our food, crap on the Television. And to make matters worse we drink like fish, and get high like birds.  This magical tonic strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.

I believe in grass as food and medicine! Drink it! Life is about prevention not, patch up. You take shots of tequila when you go out don’t you? Plug your nose, and shoot it!
