trying out SARI FOODS.

This post was sponsored by Sari Foods, but all my opinions are my own.

Fitness is a relatively new aspect of my life, but it has taken over and made me a new person.

Last summer, something just clicked and I decided that I needed a change. I was tired of not feeling good about my body, so if I wanted to start feeling good, I had to do something about it. I changed my diet to add plenty of greens, cut back on sweets, and made use of my Pinterest board full of workout routines.

And the best thing? I found that I loved exercise and healthy eating. The sweat, the new cravings for fruit instead of chocolate, and I loved how I felt. I lost about 15 pounds, but it wasn’t about the weight. For me, fitness became a lifestyle, not just a goal to be completed and forgotten about.

One of my healthy “treats” is a juice or smoothie, and there are a couple of spots around my house that I love to hit up. At the local smoothie joint, you can also purchase wheatgrass shots to be mixed with your smoothie or drink raw. If you don’t know what wheatgrass is, it’s the baby grass of a wheat plant, and it has a ton of antioxidants, enzymes, amino acids, and plenty of other goodies for your body. To get the most of your wheatgrass, typically you’d want to turn it into juice form and toss that sucker back.

But a quick disclaimer: it does taste like you’re drinking, get this, grass.

Honestly I love wheatgrass shots. I can’t say I love them for the taste, but they’re paired excellently with juice or a smoothie. Plus, who can say no to an organic, green, kick-in-the-pants cleanse? The one drawback: they’re expensive! A single wheatgrass shot can cost $5, and growing your own wheatgrass sounds cool but way too tedious for me.

One solution is wheatgrass in the form of powder, like this package from Sari Foods! Their product preserves all the fiber from the actual leaves instead of juicing-then-powdering the wheatgrass. Plus, it’s gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan, kosher, halal, and pesticide/herbicide free! I love adding a heaping spoonful (about a tablespoon is what you need) to my smoothies at breakfast or to a few ounces of water for my own at-home wheatgrass shots!

  1. Yes, wheatgrass isn’t the most pleasant tasting food, but adding it to a smoothie is the best way to go because it masks the flavor. And in some instances, it actually tastes quite good when mixed with the right flavors!
