Most of you know how much I love my green smoothies…
I have them everyday and I am so much in love with my high speed blender and my smoothies that I am actually taking my blender with me on vacation (its a vitamix, a pretty heavy machine!). Yes. Thats how much I love my smoothies. Since I love to experiment with new smoothies constantly, I was thrilled when jomu asked me to try their barley grass. I was trying wheat grass a couple of times but never barley grass (which is said to be easier digested compared to wheat grass).
When I received the package from jomu I instantly made a smoothie with the barley grass. I made my current fav – orange and pineapple (sooo refreshing in Summer and soooo sweet and yummy!) adding the barley grass. It tasted not bad at all and gave the smoothie this wonderful green color that I love.
jomu is a German company and their barley grass is 100% organic (otherwise I would not have tried it actually, perfect quality is really important to me when it comes to superfoods and additions to my smoothies) and of course it’s vegan. I have to say that I LOVE it!
Let me tell you a little more about this superfood! It containts beta carotene, vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12 (yes!!!), pantothenic acid, and folic acid. Furthermore the minerals potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and magnesium. Other constituents are chlorophyll, amino acids, protein, fiber, and enzymes. So basically, it’s pretty much magic. Some say its the healthiest thing one can find on the planet. I am not enough of an expert to confirm but I can at least tell you that I feel fit and I am somehow almost constantly in a good mood since I am drinking my daily dosis of barley grass (either in water or in a smoothie). There may be 1 million other reasons for that but there is a chance that the barley grass is playing a role in it 🙂
jomu approached me right at the perfect time, since I am breastfeeding and I am in need of extra minerals and vitamins. Of course I can also get all my minerals from my whole food plant based diet but adding the barley grass to it make things even easier for me and gives me a more secure feeling of getting everything I need.I can totally recommend checking out the website from jomu to get to know more about barley grass. I am a huge fan of the company and I may show you some other of their healthy products sometime soon 🙂
Have you every tried barley grass? Or other super foods? What are your favorites? I woudl love to know!
Sending much love!
