Wheat Grass Shots – My experience

My husband is quite a bit more healthy than I am. I’ll just put that out there right now as a caveat. But he came home the other day with something called a ‘wheat grass kit‘ which allows you to grow some wheat grass, harvest it, and turn it into a wheat grass shot. The wheat grass shot itself tastes exactly like freshly mown grass. It actually made me sick the first 2 or 3 times I took it. But my husband swears by it, so I put myself through the effort, just for him.

Since Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, I figured I would make myself take the shots with him every day until Valentine’s day, as my gift to him. But it was amazing at how much more energy, strength, and overall ‘good’ I felt after a week of taking the shots with him.

And it’s a lot less expensive than other ‘shake’ options out there like the p90x Shakeology. Granted, Shakeology is a whole lot more than wheat grass. But I’ve tried both now, and I feel like my body responds quite a bit more favorably to the wheat grass shots.

Honestly, I probably won’t take them for a long time from here on out. It’s an acquired taste, and I still haven’t acquired it yet. But my husband is happy, which is what counts I suppose.

    Have you tried it with something to mask the taste? I need to try it myself but heard it doesn’t taste so great! 🙁 But I think if it was one of 5-6 ingredients in a shake, it wouldn’t be as noticeable!

      Actually, today I put it in my spinach shake. In my shake, I put in the following ingredients:
      Greek yogurt,
      water or soy milk,
      chocolate protein powder,
      frozen mixed berries.

      Then I added the grass. It wasn’t that bad. There was still an aftertaste, but the shake itself was enjoyable. Hope that helps!
