It’s Recipe Redux time! I’ve missed out on the past two Redux challenges, but this month the RR crew is breaking out the cocktail shakers, blenders, and favorite glassware to celebrate the wide world of beverages. Because bevs are totes in right now (I’ve jumped on the abbreviation bandwagon, so bear with me).
Rummaging through my cabinets for inspiration, I remembered the wheatgrass powder I purchased at Whole Foods awhile ago. I didn’t buy it for any certain purpose, I just loved the beautiful green color and figured I could find something to do with it at some point. Many people often add fresh or powdered wheatgrass to juices or smoothies, or just take a shot of it by itself. But whisked into hot water with a bit of ginger syrup, it’s a soothing, earthy, good-for-you hot beverage. And thus you have Wheatgrass Tea…it’s just that simple. If you like matcha tea, you will probably enjoy wheatgrass tea as well.
Wheatgrass contains a concentrated amount of nutrients such as iron, calcium, magnesium, and the super-duper antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E, which are important for the immune system and so much more. The chlorophyll in wheatgrass is one of the main reasons people choose to add it into their diets, believing that the nutrient will help with improve blood oxygenation and relieve arthritis, but much more research is needed on the actual health benefits.
