And I'm not ashamed to admit it. I have been researching the health benefits of wheatgrass for about six months now, and it's amazing what it contains. This nutrient-rich grass contains 17 amino acids and retains 92 of the 102 minerals found in the soil. These minerals include calcium, phosphorus, iron magnesium and potassium. It is a rich natural source of vitamins A and C. Wheatgrass has more vitamin C than oranges and twice the vitamin A as carrots. It is exceptionally rich in vitamins E, K, and B-complex. It is also a natural source of laetrile (B-17).
This is cucumber juice - a gorgeous bright green. I love juicing cucumbers because they have a light, summery flavor. They are very thirst quenching. This morning our juice was; cucumber, wheatgrass, apple, peach, carrot & spinach.
Amulet likes her juice in a diet coke bottle. If you look closely you can even see an actual wheatgrass mustache. Who gave her access to a diet coke bottle? It couldn't be me. :) As a gemini I guess I truly am a study in opposites. I love my diet coke too.

I was gifted with this beautiful arc of colors. Not one, but two...two incredible rainbows in the middle of a storm.
Regardless of how old I am, I am always struck by the amazing beauty of this shameless display of colors. It is as though the Universe is revealing something normally hidden to humans - something special beyond words. A glimpse into the power and magnitude of all that is.
