Food as Medicine Trend

In a recent report in the Magazine "Natural Products Insider" Steve French reports that two out of five consumers believe functional foods can be used in the place of some medicines (this is a 54% increase since 2003). People are getting the message that we can get healthy through our diet!

My sister says she looks for foods with Calcium in them because she knows that she does not get enough. Wouldn't it be amazing if everyone had a little health monitor with them when they shopped and prepared meals? The monitor would tell them what vitamins and living enzymes their body really needed in order for them to feel more energy and stem predispostion to diseases. I have a feeling the monitor would tell us to eat more living fruits, veggies and lots more sprouts! I know my monitor danger alert would sound as soon as I reached for a piece of non-organic, greasy pizza!

I'm new this whole blog thing and I guess this would be a good place to ask a question but I'd like to know what are good combo's with wheat grass. I like doing WG & carrot juice but what about apple or orange? Is there stuff u don't want to mix with WG?

I like pineapple juice with wheatgrass, however, ann wigmore recommends not using acidic fruit juice with wheatgrass. It would be better to mix any of the veggie juices with the wheatgrass!

Is it safe to take mulit-vitamins with WG?

Hi Kaitlyn,

Do you know if it's ok (safe) to take multi-vitamins with wheatgrass?

Thanks!
Wendy

You can make the barley grass taste better by adding pineapple juice or other types of canned or bottled juices.
