Not So Scary: Wheatgrass, the Wonder Juice

Wheatgrass Shot

Sure, it might look like the stuff you have to clean out of your lawnmower, but trust us: wheatgrass is exceedingly good for your health, and once you get used to it, it really isn’t so scary to drink. Need more convincing? Here are five surprising facts you may not know about wheatgrass juice:

  1. Wheatgrass juice is 70% chlorophyll, and like all plants that contain chlorophyll, wheatgrass is high in oxygen. The brain and body tissues function at optimal levels when exposed to high levels of oxygen.
  2. chlorophyll is also anti-bacterial, meaning it is useful inside and outside of the body as a healing agent. It also helps purefy the liver, improves blood sugar problems, and can wash drug deposits from the body.
  3. Wheatgrass juice is a superior detoxification agent: According to research, just 15 pounds of wheatgrass has the same detoxifying power as 350 pounds of carrots, lettuce, celery and others.
  4. Wheatgrass juice can help improve the appearance of skin by helping clear acne and even reducing the appearance of acne scars after seven to eight months of regular ingestion (in combination with a healthy diet). It can also help with other skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis.
  5. The chlorophyll in wheatgrass juice enhances hemoglobin production in the body, and can help reduce high blood pressure.

Ready to try it? Shots of wheatgrass are available at Nugget’s coffee bars — try one next time you stop by!

The Secret Life of Cheese


This just in: Cheese is actually … healthy for you? It seems impossible that something so tasty can also provide many health benefits, but, when eaten in moderation, cheese actually does provide many of the vitamins and minerals our bodies need daily. Cheese helps your body with digestion, and it is also an excellent source of protein and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, D, E and K – not to mention calcium, phosphorous, sodium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron, manganese and copper. Translation: Cheese contains a whole lot of goodness in one delicious food!

The “Light” in Light Beer

Beer Calories

If losing weight is one of your New Year’s resolutions, you might be thinking of switching to a light beer to help cut calories. But how “light” are light beers, exactly? Most light beers are diluted with water in order to reduce their alcohol content (and therefore reduce their calorie counts), but this also sometimes comes with a sacrifice in flavor. In general, most light beers have about 35 fewer calories per serving than standard versions. Most people can burn that off with a 10-minute walk. Check out the calorie comparisons above.

Health Notes with Dr. LizDr Liz

Less is More

From Thanksgiving to Super Bowl Sunday, we’re in the season of excess. You may find yourself eating and drinking your way into 2009 between the office parties, family dinners, New Year’s celebrations and football-playoff food fests. This excess may leave you with a few extra, unwanted pounds and a fitness plan that’s a distant memory. But rather than missing the festivities to avoid the excess, enjoy yourself instead with a new motto. This party season, “Less is more.” Here are some ways to start 2009 refreshed.

  1. Downsize: At dinner parties and family affairs, serve yourself smaller portions. According to research, most of the taste enjoyment comes from the first few bites. Sampling small portions of everything offered will keep the cook happy but keep you from indulging in unwanted calories.
  2. Savor sweets: This season make peace with the chocolates, cookies and other treats that appear at virtually every holiday gathering. Decide on the one or two goodies you will sample and then enjoy. Avoid temptation of more by positioning yourself away from the sweet area and declining the offer to take home leftovers.
  3. Sip slowly: Cocktails, champagne and other alcoholic beverages flow this time of year, contributing to that “too much” feeling that leaves you less than energetic the next day. Moderation is key when it comes to alcohol. Decide on your limit before you start and sip slowly, letting yourself enjoy the conversation and company.
  4. Live by example: Employ the “less is more” approach for gatherings you host. Serve smaller portions, scale back on quantities of food and drink, and instead focus on special items such as old family recipes or unique foods. Your guests won’t go home hungry, but instead they will be satiated with the richness of friends and family.
