LET’S TALK JUICE

How many raw fruits and vegetables do you eat in a day?  2 maybe 3?  How many could you eat?  (Be honest…your stomach only has so much room!) What happens when you drink raw juice?  When you juice raw fruits and veggies, you are getting the full nutritional value of the fresh, raw fruits and vegetables–more than the average person can fit into his/her diet normally!

Think about our Snazzy Rabbit for instance, basically it’s a handful of frozen mango and pineapple and we add to it, juice of two oranges and a lemon as well as s couple of carrots.  WOW!  What a Vitamin C Boost!

When you juice, your body absorbs the nutrients better.  Why?  There’s no plant fiber to get in the way…pretty much just liquid vitamins at this point.  The process of juicing helps to begin to break down vegetables, making it easier for our body to digest them.  When we eat raw vegetables, especially fibrous vegetables, our bodies cannot break them down fully, so we miss out on a lot of nutrition.  Juicing means that we get nutrition into our bodies, where it belongs!

Did you know that if you chew your juice and swish it around in your mouth you create more saliva therefore getting the most out of your digestion?

Juicing is the easy way to get your six to eight servings of vegetables a day.  Cooked vegetables lose nutrition; raw vegetables pack a powerful nutritional punch.  You can get an entire day’s worth of vegetables in a single glass of vegetable juice.
When you cook and eat vegetables or have a salad, you tend to use the same greens and the same vegetables all the time, right?  It is so easy to fall into a comfortable pattern!  Diversify your diet–start juicing!  Because you are juicing more than one vegetable at a time, you can mix and match your flavors, so your choices are endless when it comes to flavor combinations…and nutrient combinations as well!  Have you tasted our Kitchen Sink?  Lots of flavors and lots of vitamins in one drink, and if you like beet flavor Turn up the Beet is another favorite.

Don’t be afraid to try something more than just a Smoothie here at Wheatgrass but be adventurous and give your digestive system a break with a Juice for lunch or in the afternoon for a quick pick me up!

Don’t forget we do offer our 1,2, and 3 day Juice Cleanse!

Want Optimal Health WITH WATER

Wow, what a week!  Back the school has got us all back into a routine again! With that said, sports play a big important part in school.  We want our children to be eating healthy and drinking plenty of water for optimal health.

Drinking pure water every day is a key component of optimal health. Unfortunately, many make the mistake of forgoing water for other types of fluids, most of which have added ingredients that will not do your health any favors.

_________________________________________________________________________

We just got another testimony from a customer who drinks our Kangen 9.5 water:

“Kangen water has helped me lose weight, and I have never felt better…. I can tell the difference when I don’t drink the Kangen water”! 

________________________________________________________________________

YOUR BODY NEEDS WATER

Your body is composed of about 65 percent water, which is needed for a number of physiological processes and biochemical reactions, including but not limited to:

  • Blood circulation
  • Metabolism
  • Regulation of body temperature
  • Waste removal and detoxification

Once your body has lost between one to two percent of its total water content, it will signal its needs by making you feel thirsty. Using thirst as a guide to how much water you need to drink is one obvious way to ensure your individual needs are met, day-by-day.

However, by the time your thirst mechanism actually kicks in, you’re already in the early stages of dehydration, so you don’t want to ignore the initial sensations of thirst.

Hunger—sugar cravings in particular—can also be a sign that your body is crying for water, so as noted in the featured video, when you feel hungry, drink a glass of water first.

So, in addition to thirst, which is an obvious signal, other signals indicating you need to drink more water include:

  • Fatigue and/or dizziness
  • Foggy thinking and poor concentration
  • Muscle cramps
  • Dull, dry skin and/or pronounced wrinkles
  • Infrequent urination; dark concentrated urine
  • Bad breath
  • Mood swings
  • Chills
  • Back or joint ache
  • Constipation
  • Headache
  • Sugar cravings

Severe dehydration can be life threatening, but even mild dehydration can cause problems ranging from headaches and irritability to impaired cognition. It can also affect your sports performance, as noted in a recent CNN report.

CHRONIC DEHYDRATION MAY AFFECT AND DAMAGE YOUR ORGANS

Over a long-term period of daily drinking insufficient water, chronic diseases may develop:

Asthma and Allergies:  When dehydrated, your body will restrict airways as a means to conserve water. In fact, the rate of histamine produced by your body increases exponentially as the body loses more and more water.

Bladder or Kidney Problems:  With a dehydrated body, the accumulation of toxins and acid waste creates an environment where bacteria thrive, resulting in the bladder and kidney to be more prone to infection, stones formation, inflammation and pain.

Constipation:  When short of water, the colon is one of the primary regions the body draws water from, in order to provide fluids for other critical body functions. Without adequate water, wastes move through the large intestines much more slowly or sometimes not at all, resulting in constipation.

Digestive Disorders:  A shortage of water and alkaline minerals such as calcium and magnesium, can lead to a number of digestive disorders, including ulcers, gastritis and acid reflux.

Headaches and Migraines:  Headaches and migraines could be a sign of dehydration. Being dehydrated deprives fluid sacks around your brain cells to undergo pressure.

dehydration effectsHigh Blood Pressure:  The blood is normally about 92% water when the body is fully hydrated. When dehydrated, the blood becomes thicker causing resistance to blood flow and resulting in elevated blood pressure.

High Cholesterol:  When the body is dehydrated, it will produce more cholesterol to prevent water loss from the cells.

Joint Pain or Stiffness:  All joints have cartilage padding which is composed mainly of water. When the body is dehydrated, cartilage is weakened and joint repair is slow resulting in pain and discomfort.

Skin Disorders:  Dehydration impairs the elimination of toxins through the skin and makes it more vulnerable to all types of skin disorders, including dermatitis and psoriasis, as well as premature wrinkling and discoloration.

Sweet-tooth Cravings:  Your body needs water to help process nutrients, including glycogen. When you are dehydrated, your body may be signaling to you that you need sugar, which often presents itself as sugar cravings for cakes and other unhealthy goodies. Drink water or a freshly extracted juice instead.

Weight Gain, Constantly Feeling Hungry:  When dehydrated, cells are depleted of energy to burn fuel. As a result, people feel tired and hungry, leading them to eat more when in reality, the body is just dehydrated.

THE COLOR OF YOUR URINE A HYDRATION MARKER

The oft-repeated guideline is to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day, but considering the fact that your water needs can vary significantly from day-to-day depending on factors such as your activity level and weather conditions, this suggestion may be inadequate.

In reality, it’s virtually impossible to determine a general guideline that will apply to everyone, all the time. As noted in the video above, the Institute of Medicine recommends a much higher average water intake, suggesting women drink 2.7 liters or 91 ounces of water per day, and men 3.7 liters, or 125 ounces.

The featured study used urine concentration to evaluate hydration status, and looking at the color of your urine is perhaps one of the best ways to track your individual hydration status from day-to-day.

Concentrated, dark-colored urine is a sign that your kidneys are retaining fluids to maintain your bodily functions, and is a good indication that you need more water. Ideally, you’ll want to drink enough water to turn your urine a light-colored yellow.

Also please realize that riboflavin (vitamin B2; also found in most multi-vitamins) will turn your urine a bright, almost fluorescent yellow. So if you’re taking supplements containing B2, it may be more difficult to judge your water needs by the color of your urine.

Frequency of urination can also be used to judge your water intake. A healthy person urinates on average about seven or eight times a day. If your urine is scant or if you haven’t urinated in several hours, that too is an indication that you’re not drinking enough.

DRINK PURE WATER TOWARDS HEALTH

It’s important to recognize that your body loses water throughout each day, even when you’re not sweating, and that you need to constantly replenish this fluid loss. While soda, fruit juices, sports drinks, energy drinks, and other beverages typically contain a fair amount of water, they are poor substitutes for pure water, and generally do not count toward this requirement.

Soda and energy drinks, for example, are high in caffeine, which acts as a diuretic that will actually dehydrate you, so they’re a terrible choice for quenching your thirst. In fact, have you noticed that you tend to get thirstier the more soda you drink? The sugar is addictive, which contributes to this phenomenon, but dehydration also plays a role.

Worse yet, sodas, fruit juices, sports drinks, and other sweetened beverages typically contain processed fructose, which is a primary driver of obesity and metabolic dysfunction. Just one can of soda per day can add as much as 15 pounds to your weight over the course of a single year.

One soda per day also increases your risk of diabetes by 85 percent, and frequent soda drinkers have higher cancer risk. So to stay hydrated, drinking pure water is key. This is true when exercising as well. Many still believe that sports drinks are the best alternative to replenish lost fluids and electrolytes when working up a sweat, but that’s simply not true.

WHY SPORTS DRINKS ARE BEST AVOIDED

The majority of people believe that sports drinks like Gatorade are far better to drink than water when you’re dehydrated because of electrolyte replacement. Avoid this common mistake, as nothing could be further from the truth. More important than the electrolytes are sugar, and most sports drinks contain two-thirds or even more sugar than sodas, typically in the form of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).  WE HAVE A BETTER SOLUTION! 

Many also contain artificial flavors and food coloring, none of which contribute to optimal health. Fructose is primarily metabolized by your liver, because that is the only organ that has the transporter for it and is the main cause of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

In your liver, fructose is metabolized much like alcohol, causing mitochondrial and metabolic dysfunction in the same way as ethanol and other toxins. And just like alcohol, your body turns fructose directly into fat—hardly what you need after a good workout.

If your sports drink is low-calorie and sugar-free, it likely contains artificial sweeteners, which may be even worse for you than fructose. In addition to that, consuming sugar after exercise will negatively affect your insulin sensitivity—and your human growth hormone (HGH) production if you’re doing high intensity exercise. Most sports drinks also contain high amounts of sodium (processed salt), which is meant to replenish the electrolytes you lose while sweating.

It is very easy and inexpensive to address the electrolyte replacement issue simply by adding a small amount of natural, unprocessed salt, such as Himalayan salt, to your water.  Contrary to processed salt, this natural salt contains 84 different minerals and trace minerals that your body needs for optimal function. Another excellent option when you’re sweating profusely is coconut water.

BEVERAGES THAT PROMOTE POOR HEALTH

While many have become savvy about the health hazards of soda, many are still under the mistaken belief that boxed fruit juice is a healthy beverage. This is a dangerous misconception fueling rising rates of weight gain, obesity, fatty liver disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes in the United States and other developed nations—especially among children.

One eight-ounce glass of orange juice has about eight full teaspoons of sugar, and at least 50 percent of that sugar is fructose. That’s almost as much as a can of soda, which contains approximately 10 teaspoons of sugar.

Fruit drinks, on the other hand, will likely contain high-fructose corn syrup, just as soda does. In fact, soda giants like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Dr. Pepper are actually the parent companies to most sugary drinks on the market, and that includes fruit juices.

If you and your family drink soft drinks and/or fruit juice regularly, one of the best things you can do for your overall health is to switch to clean fresh water or fresh raw juice or smoothies made from real food. Fortunately, stopping soda is one of the easiest health habits to make for most people.

Take The Quiz!


It’s not only what you eat, but also what you drink. The easiest way to detox it by drinking the right water.

Read through this Questionnaire and answer yes or no. Follow the chart below to see how close you are to living an alkaline lifestyle.

Do you consume bottled water, carbonated beverages, coffee and/or sports drinks more than 3 times a week?

Are the majority of the foods you consume cooked?

Does your diet contain packaged and processed food more than once per day?

Do you have a challenge with your energy or motivational level?

Is your urine often yellow?

Do you have an excess of stomach acid (acid reflux, heartburn or GERD)?

Do you consume white flour more than once per day?

Do you suffer from anxiety or depression?

Do you experience added stress more than once per day?

Do you average less than 8 hours of sleep per night?

Do you consume white sugar or artificial sweeteners more than once per day?
Do you frequently have constipation and/or loose stool?

Do you feel the need to clear your throat often (excess mucous)?

Do you consume dairy more than once a day?

Do you typically purchase conventional fruits, vegetables, and grains?

Is your memory or ability to recollect beginning to slip?

Do you suffer from inflammation and frequent pain in the body?

Do you suffer from ulcers?

Do you work out less than 3 times per week?

Do you get leg cramps or spasms often?

Do you have thin nails that break often?

Has your hair lost its healthy luster and volume?

Do you have arthritis or gout?

Are you experiencing bone loss/osteoporosis?

How many questions did you answer Yes to?

0-2 You are probably alkaline especially if you drink alkaline water and take digestive enzymes such as our Pro-biotics we offer here at the store.

3-4 You may be slightly acidic causing undue stress on the body. Increase your alkaline water intake and consume our whole body care system that contains nutrients and enzymes daily to stay in proper balance.

5+ You are most likely acidic which will cause severely increased risk of disease. Adhering to the principles can make a difference in your future health. We strongly suggest getting access to alkaline water, incorporating our whole body care systems into your lifestyle, and consuming a very alkaline superfood such as our greens on a daily basis.

These questions are indicative of a lifestyle that is out of balance and sending warning signals to proceed with caution. It is time make a U turn with your health and bring balance and harmony back to your body, so that you can live life to the fullest.

Ionized Alkalized Water neutralizes acidic waste super fast by raising the alkaline buffers in the body. Ionized Alkalized Water also penetrates the cell wall like no other water can. Due to its smaller cluster size, Ionized Alkalized Water can pull out toxins from the cells and increase nutrient absorption. Drink the right water and your body will work a lot better.

MEMBERSHIP SPECIAL:  Have you had your first free gallon yet?  Come in and pick up your first Free Gallon of 9.5 Alkaline water today and get started on the right track of drinking more water!   At check out just say “I NEED MY FIRST FREE GALLON OF KANGEN WATER”

PH Scale Emotions – Alkaline Body

Most of us are familiar with the pH scale for acid/alkaline foods and water. But did you know that there is also a “pH scale” for negative/positive emotions? Did you know that our thoughts have more power over the health of our bodies than our diet? We can become a lot sicker faster by having negative thoughts than by drinking acidic water or eating acidic foods. We see it all the time how happy-go-lucky people who eat junk seem to never get sick, while the health conscious ones can be doing all the right things but their negative thoughts are keeping them from optimal health.

Below is a chart that is a PH Scale we use when we test the water.  If you compare it to the food/water: (brown is soda – Orange to Green is bottled water – Blue is tap water and purple is Kangen water) .  This is comparable to our emotions.  We call this the Emotional PH Scale.

Your emotions are so important. Your mental state, in many ways, if it’s negative, can create more metabolic acids than the food that you’re eating or the water that you’re drinking. In fact, you can create two or three times more metabolic acids from your thoughts then from your acidic diet such as sugar, dairy and animal protein. That’s why those of us with “acidic thoughts” suffer a lot more than those of us with an acidic lifestyle.

Your thoughts or words do become matter, and can affect your physiology in a negative or positive way. And the way your thoughts become biology is as follows: when you have a thought, that thought requires energy for the brain cells to produce that thought. As you carry on that thought you are using energy, and when you are using energy you produce a biological waste product called, acid. If the metabolic acids from your thoughts are not properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination of, urination, perspiration, respiration or defecation, then your acids from your thoughts are moved out into your fatty tissues and connective tissues causing imbalance and dis-ease.

Emotion is “energy in motion.” When someone experiences negative emotions they are producing metabolic acids at a high rate. The rate of acid production is greater than someone who is working out. That’s how your thoughts become biology or metabolic acids that can make you sick, tired and fat. When you start producing acids with your thoughts this will activate the alkaline-buffering system to neutralize these acids. If these acids are not buffered and/or eliminated, they can create serious health challenges in your body. Positive emotions, such as love, peace, hope, faith, and forgiveness, can all be alkalizing to the blood and tissues. The negative emotions of anger, resentment, and fear – are the most powerful and acidifying of all emotions. The fear of the unknown is probably the most powerful and acidic of them all. Fear is so devastating to the body, even if you’re on an alkaline diet, overcoming a serious health challenge is practically impossible.

If you’re not feeling your best although you are eating alkalizing foods and drinking alkalizing water, it’s time to pay a closer attention to the thoughts you are having most of the time. Since your thoughts govern your emotions, you want to plant as many positive thoughts in your mind as possible and feel really good emotionally most of the time. It doesn’t happen by chance. It happens by choice. You have to choose your thoughts constantly and only entertain the thoughts that serve you best.

We here at Wheatgrass want your whole being healthy and whole to live a more abundant life!  We create not only a peaceful atmosphere of practicing healthy emotions but also serve alkaline juice, foods and alkaline water.   This week, come in and try a new juice or pick up your free first gallon of Kangen water for a refreshing boost of goodness for your body if you are feeling a little stressed out!  Take note of the foods you are eating and be sure to cut back on Acidic foods to notice a change in attitude and emotions.

Reflecting Motherhood

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and I know it has always been a time for myself to reflect on memories of my children when they were little and also on honoring my mother.

My mother and father were married for over 50 years.  My mother Annette, taught me many things in life and showed the art of sacrificial giving and running a household.  I look at her now and call her the energy bunny.  After my father passed away two years ago, she found herself in another season of life.  She continues to move forward with purpose.

Parents instill in their children a type of programming in which we get our types of personalities, our work ethic, our behaviors and morals.  I watched my mother work part-time, take care of the yard, the vehicles, household chores, and three gardens, (in which she canned for winter meals).  She also instilled in me, “You can do anything you set your mind to do”.  Thus when the challenge arose of the Juice Bar, I jumped in with both feet.  I am thankful for my heritage and knowledge of great home cooking!

My mother is a “giver” with full heart behind it, not just give to receive but a true heart to give and I honor and admire her for that.  She is usually the first one to go to a person’s home after a death bring them paper goods, the one who drives the elderly to the store, the one who jumps in to do a chore when she is just visiting.  My mother looks for opportunities to give and when she does, it speaks volumes of legacy, my legacy.

This week, take time to reflect or see and honor your mother.  Most mothers just want a little of your time.  Time as you know is always moving and we can’t get it back.

Please leave a comment below of a memory of your mother or the legacy she left behind to be entered into a drawing for something special!

LOYAL MEMBERSHIP SPECIAL:  Mothers who come in and show us a photo of your children receive 10% savings this week off of one item in the store which includes juice, smoothie, or supplements!

It’s Spring and everything is in bloom!  We all look forward to this birth of a new season as we see the resurrection of life in our midst.  From hearing the song birds, to seeing buds on trees and finally a breath of fresh air and warm weather.  I know it makes me happy!  Our bottled juices are back in full season and looking forward to introducing Almond Milk in a bottle with some Cold Brew!  Have you helped us name our new Activated Charcoal Drink?  Come in and vote/taste it!  

Our new years resolutions may not be where we wanted it to be, however in spring it creates a feeling of a new season to start over making promises to ourselves to live better, eat better and exercise more.

On our survey we sent out a few months ago, over 90% of participates wanted to live a healthier lifestyle but sometimes think it is so overwhelming task they don’t know where to start.  Try to remember it’s the little steps first and being healthier doesn’t have to mean overhauling your entire lifestyle all at once. Sometimes all it takes is a few simple changes.  I decided to make a list so you can add this to your daily plans which can make a huge difference in the way you feel and overall health.

  1. Drink more water.  Not just any water, reach for the 9.5 Alkaline Water.  Most bottled water is very acidic which increases inflammation.  Our tap water is very old and full of chemicals and needs filtration.  Have you read about our Kangen Water?  Come in for your first free gallon!
  2. Get plenty of sleep.  If you are not getting at least 6 hours of sleep, take time to wind down at night before going to bed.  Your body and mind will thank you for it later.
  3. Limit your television viewing.  Studies show that most people spend four or more hours in front of their TV.  Old habits are hard to break but worth it.  The most successful people in the world rarely watch television.  Read a book.  Write. Paint.  Who wants to watch almost 7 days of commercials in a full year’s time (That’s if only you watch one hour of tv a day)
  4. Be social. Connect to a friend and have lunch or phone time to chat.  Friends and family are a great way to perk up your day as long as the conversation is a two-way positive encouraging one.  You don’t need negative nellies in your life to cause you more stress.  Find someone you look  up to and establish a connection.  Sometimes you need to feel safe to just talk out your own feelings or help make decisions.
  5. Find ways to relax without running to a buffet of unhealthy food.  Whether it is taking a long hot bath, walking in the park, taking a yoga/stretching class or just relaxing and taking a few deep breaths.  Stress can take a toll on your body as well as add all kinds of unhealthy issues.
  6. Connect Spiritually.  Pray. Read. Study.

I hope that Spring has been a good one so far for you and we know Summer is around the corner.  We are still looking for a location with sit down seating to provide for you better service.   This month is still in celebration mode!

Have you heard we are giving away some more freebies?  Between 2-3 on Monday and Tuesday, we are serving  Free Pina’ Coladas!  We are having also some little goodies to sample!  Plus you can register for a FREE Summer Cooling Bag by stopping in this week and putting your name in the bag!  One lucky loyal member will be chosen on Saturday!
