MYD Health & Beauty: Amazing Grass

Hi MYD Beauties!

This post is all about beginning your morning with a fresh and healthy start. I think that it’s safe to say many of us have a busy schedule and it can be hard to find the time for ourselves. I don’t know about you, but there are many mornings when the first thing that I think of when I wake up is COFFEE. There is nothing quite like having a fresh brew of coffee in the morning, which is why it was pretty difficult for me to transition over to drinking wheat grass.

Yes, wheat grass…Amazing Grass Green Superfood to be exact. Of course the first few days I would follow with a coffee soon after thinking that the wheat grass wouldn’t give me the extra jolt I needed. To my surprise, within a week I noticed that my overall stamina and energy had vastly improved and now it’s a part of my morning regimen!

There was a trial and error when it came to trying out the flavors and I soon discovered that lemon-lime is by far my favorite flavor. This specific product is 100% vegan, gluten free, and 1 scoop is equivalent to 4-5 servings of deep green leafy vegetables. I like to freeze this product and I have it with ice-cold water first thing in the morning. That’s not to say I totally quit drinking coffee, it’s just not the first thing that I have when I wake up. I also recommend adding a scoop of wheat grass to smoothies or juices! Especially since the taste is very “earthy” and took some time for me to get used to.

After a couple of weeks drinking the wheat grass daily, I also noticed an improvement in my skin. I have normal to sensitive skin with minor breakouts here and there, but I noticed my complexion looked healthier. As a makeup artist, that made me feel super excited because I just love a good glow!  Not only does it give you a boost of energy because of its digestive enzymes and probiotics, its nutritious greens promotes detoxification and boosts your immune system. I highly recommend this product!

Cheers to healthy living!
