Today’s post on Wheatgrass a Winner for Wellness will share some great information to help improve your health and well being. Most people are not consciously and even unconsciously aware of the tremendous nutritional value in various types of grasses. When we stop to look and think about a buffalo, cow, deer, elephant, giraffe, horse and rhinoceros eating grasses we realize what a nutrient dense super food it is to contribute to animals powerful muscles, speed and strength. Consuming grasses can play a vital role in helping us maintain our health, muscles, power, resilience, strength, tone, vitality and weight. With so many unhealthy fake, fast and junk foods on the market maybe it is time to start eating like the fastest and strongest animals on the planet and consume grasses. This post will share some simple suggestions to help you harness the power of grasses and especially why Wheatgrass is a Winner for Wellness by improving our happiness, health and harmony.
We all know and are regularly told we should eat a wide selection of plant based nutrition including greens, salads and veggies. Unfortunately most people fail to follow this sage advice, We consume these essential foods too little and too seldom. When you ask why, most people say they are not conditioned or trained to prepare and eat them at every meal. Let me go on record as recommending it is important if not essential to develop the habit of eating some fresh or prepared grasses, greens, herbs, salads and veggies at every meal. Yes every meal!
Many people may be thinking that is more greens and veggies than they eat in a whole week and this post is recommending to do this every day and at every meal. Yes. Last week the post on the power of prebiotics and probiotics mentioned the importance of consuming a wide range of plant fiber (prebiotics) to feed the probiotics in our gut for them to maintain a healthy population and digest the foods we consume. This allows them to extract the nutrients from plants so we can absorb them. Consuming a large supply of green plants will provide a wide range of nutrient rich foods that contain chlorophyl, enzymes, minerals, phyto nutrients, trace elements and vitamins that our body needs.
Consuming some form of green plant nourishment at each meal is a choice, decision and commitment for us to make when we are determined to be fit, healthy and strong for life. Green plants offer our emotional, mental and physical being the vital compounds, elements, life force, molecules and quantum energy for a well peak performance level of awareness, fitness and health. Today’s post on the benefits of grasses and especially wheatgrass is the result of many expert resources and role models that have shared the profound benefits of consuming these great green superfoods.
Grasses and green plants are the primary food that feeds animals and humans. If you consume animals products be sure to consume only ones that are fed natural foods and grasses, free range and organic. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) canola, corn, cottonseed and soy are “Frankenfoods” and unnatural foods unfit for animals and humans alike. They are contaminated with genetically engineered DNA and glyphosate a systemic herbicide used to kill green plants and will result in harmful health consequences. People must learn and understand the essential role that green plant nutrition plays in every area of our health and well being. Unhealthy and unnatural foods lead to the majority of behavior and health issues we are observing today. Remember we are what we eat and assimilate so choose wisely.
Grass and Green Plant Basics and Benefits
My friend and mentor David Avocado Wolfe is a big believer in the benefits of grasses and tuned me into the nutritional powerhouse of consuming a variety of grasses and greens. After meeting him in February 2002 at a health mastery event and then supporting his four day training at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Texas I was committed to helping myself and others learn and utilize the potent power of green grasses and superfoods. While we took a private guided tour of the project David pointed out the health, muscle strength, power and speed of these wild animals consuming mostly wild grasses, green plants, herbs and weeds. After eating grasses, greens and raw foods three times a day I was hooked for life. We observed giraffe, horses and rhinoceros all eating the same grasses and growing big, fast and strong from eating these simple looking and often overlooked grasses and herbs. I have never looked at green plants the same again. Here are some of his profound proven principles for health:
It is essential to consume a steady diet of organic plant based whole food nutrition to feed and fuel our body and mind.
Avoid harmful processed and refined fake, fast and junk foods. Once a food has been highly heated and treated the vital nutrients are altered and destroyed. These processed foods negatively alter our body or mind and can rapidly lead to issues with our happiness and health.
Yoga is one of the easiest and most effective ways to heal our body and help our mind. Any one of any age can start doing yoga and is one of the best ways to help recover and regain their health. Yoga develops the core muscles to create better agility, flexibility and stability for every stage of life.
Being playful, connecting with nature and having fun are essential aspects of health and creating a quality life.
Most people are struggling with health issues that would improve with a regular routine of earthing, green foods, raw foods, superfoods and yoga.
There is significant data to indicate these routines will provide rapid results to anyone that applies them. It is very exciting to see so many articles and videos featuring David a true pioneer in sharing and teaching amazing aspects of emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health. David is one of the most powerful holistic health resources and role models for me and anyone serious about being fit, happy and healthy.
Well on my journey with holistic health and superfood nutrition after a health transformation in 1995, David showed me how to take my life to a whole new dimension and level. His inspiration and instructions on grasses in general and wheatgrass specifically opened me up to the pure potential and power of consuming grasses and wheatgrass for vibrant health and wellness.
The Benefits of Wheatgrass
The wheatgrass expert that David referred to in his presentation was Ann Wigmore who wrote The Wheatgrass Book. She founded the Hippocrates Health Institute Inc. (HHII) to share her health discoveries and teachings and copyrighted the book in 1985. Benefits of consuming wheatgrass include:
