Banana Wheatgrass Mini Bundt Cake


I've known wheatgrass juice' significance to health a long time ago, but I've gotten tired of its taste. But from time to time, I make a point to give kindness to my skin, hair and body by drinking a glass of Easy Phamax Wheatgrass juice.



So why drink or take a shot of wheatgrass?

  • Wheatgrass contains over 90 minerals, including high concentrations of the most alkaline minerals: potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium
  • It contains the essential enzymes: Protease (assists in protein digestion), Cytochrome Oxidase (a powerful anti oxidant), Amylase (facilitates digestion), Lipase (a fat splitting enzyme), Transhydrogenase (strengthens the heart muscle) & Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) (found in all body cells and is known for its ability to lessen the effect of radiation and slow cellular aging)
  • Just one teaspoon of Wheat Grass powder, weighing a mere 3.5 grams, is nutritionally equal to an entire spinach salad weighing a full 50 grams – it packs a punch!
  • Wheatgrass has more vitamin C than oranges and twice the vitamin A as carrots!
  • Wheat grass juice helps your body to build red blood cells which carry oxygen to every cell.
  • By increasing the oxygenation the body you can help offset smog and carbon monoxide and increase your endurance during physical exerciseIt also contains 19 amino acids, the building blocks of protein making this one of the most impressive single sources of nutrients on Earth!

With that, it wasn't hard for me to accept the fact that wheatgrass powder can also be used in cooking and enhancing not just the taste but also the nutrient value of the dish.

Let me share this link that contains recipes of dishes infused with Easy Phamax Wheatgrass.
