Don’t be scared of the green stuff! It is called wheat grass and is loaded with antioxidants. If you hid it in this smoothie – you won’t even know it is there. It contains a variety of minerals, vitamins, amino acids and helpful enzymes for digestion. Below is a nice comparison chart on the levels of minerals and vitamins – comparing them to spinach and broccoli, some other super foods.

Plus I think it is just beautiful – such a nice fresh plant to have in your home.
