eating out and wheatgrass shots...

{image via communal blog}

So, last week Grant and I were driving around Provo trying to find a place for lunch. Here is the dilemma we always have: we both want to eat something fairly inexpensive, but I definitely don't have the same love for fast food that Grant has. Although, I did recently discover the 89 cent chicken burrito at Taco Bell, which is delicious and the perfect amount of food. So, we try to compromise and we usually end up at places like Pita Pit and Panda Express, but I really feel like if we're going to eat out we should go all out. There are a bunch of restaurants in the area that we haven't tried yet that I want to go to before we leave for Tulsa (which is right after finals! ahhh!).
Some of the places we still need to try are:

Pizzeria 712
Shirley's Bakery
Four Seasons Hot Pots

Anyway, we were on our way to Target in Orem and we passed Cafe Fresh. I harassed Grant until he turned around and TA-DAH! We had found our lunch destination. It was great. The food really is fresh and they offer so many healthy choices! It was so refreshing to finish lunch and not feel sick to my stomach, or feel so guilty about what I ate that I felt like I had committed a serious moral transgression! Poor Grant accidentally ordered a vegetarian meal, and it almost ruined his day. Grant must really love me to humor me so much (not too mention that he saw New Moon with me last night!)

Anyway, we're at Cafe Fresh and see this very cute and stylish girl drinking a wheat grass shot. Even from where we were sitting I could smell it. It wasn't necessarily bad, but it was super strong. It reminded me of grass clippings. So I was wondering, what's the deal with wheat grass shots?? Are they really as good for you as everyone thinks? So, I decided to do a little bit more research about these powerful greens. The best are articles are here, here and here.

Does anybody swear by wheat grass shots? Or has anybody have any more restaurants that Grant and I should add to our list?
