How to Take Control of Your Life with 3 Steps

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someonePin on Pinterest
Take Control with The Green Shot Challenge

Take Control with The Green Shot Challenge explained in 3 simple steps.

Step 1) Pick one aspect of your life you want to improve

Everyone has something

in their lives that they’ve been wanting to change  for some time but just can’t possibly fathom how it could get done.  So, you let it wallow in the shadow of your life for far too long, and to no one’s surprise, you sink deeper and deeper, making the change seem even more impossible.

Rebecca Matsil, a team member at Perfect Foods, studied Psychology at the University at Albany and has made it her life’s mission to understand the life long pursuit of human beings called, “happiness”. As long time and respected leaders in the Health Industry, Perfect Foods has made it its personal mission to help New Yorkers find that.

The #1 factor in depression

in America is the feeling of a “lack of control” in one’s life. Have you forgotten that you have control. Feeling helpless, hopeless and trapped in the momentum of the life you built for yourself is not how life has to be. But, don’t worry, you’re not alone and you can make a change.

“I want New Yorkers to realize that they have the power to Take Control of their lives and no change is too big or too impossible if it means growth in the long run,”

said Rebecca. We want the humans of NY to know that you have the choice to make a change, and we are here to help you start now!   You have control. Nothing makes you more unhappy with yourself than knowing that something is not right in your life and you’re not doing anything about it.  So, let’s make a change together.

One of the biggest problem with successfully making a change is first identifying what the problem is and how you want to improve it. Pick one aspect of your life to take control of. This is something you have been wanting to change but just haven’t gotten around to.

Some possible changes could be:

  • Job
  • Any Relationship: Romantic, Family, Friend, Co-worker
  • Mindset (being more positive or grateful)
  • Self-esteem
  • Start a new passion
  • Start a new skill
  • Work on an old skill
  • Work on a relationship
  • Move to a new place
  • Change your diet
  • Lose weight
  • Exercise more
  • Start Meditating/yoga

These are just ideas, but you know what change is right for you. Think of something that is holding you back from your potential. Think of something you always wanted to do but never had the time or guts to do. Think of something you envy in someone else that you wish you could have. Think of something that would increase your quality of life and, together, let’s take control.

Step 2) Be Committed and Have Possitive Support

Commitment is key to change and commitment without support is hard. That’s why we created the 4 Day Green Shot Challenge.

4 Day #GreenShotChallenge.

In 4 days you will provide your body with healthy nutrients and pick one aspect of your life you would like to see change with the support of Perfect Foods.

All it takes is a moment of power each day to focus your mind, bring mindfulness to your life and give you motivation to be the better you. It’s not easy doing it on your own, so we created the 4 Day Green Shot Challenge to give you healthy support and personal support. Drink The Green Shot (Perfect Foods Wheatgrass) for 4 days in a row in one of our many locations around New York. The Green Shot gives your body the nutrients and energy it needs to be healthy and the challenge gives you the discipline to succeed. This requires commitment to your body, health and life. With out that you won’t achieve any other goal.

Step 3) Inspire others and be a part of a Mission.

Being connected and inspiring others is a key aspect of fulfillment, meaning and happiness. Post your personal goal on Instagram or Facebook to keep you motivated, inspire your friends and be a part of something bigger.

 Mission: Let’s Make  A Happier New York.

“Happiness is being comfortable with who you are and where you are going. Everything else doesn’t feel like such a challenge once you have that,” -Rebecca.


If you complete the challenge, you get entered to win $50 Juice Bar Gift Card to bring to any local juice bar that sells #TheGreenShot (Ask for Perfect Foods Wheatgrass). Post a picture of your wheatgrass shot on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook with #GreenShotChallenge and send your video journal to everyday!

Top 10 Wheatgrass Benefits

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someonePin on Pinterest

By now you’ve probably heard that wheatgrass is a “super food” and you’ve seen it in all the juice bars but what is wheatgrass, what are the health benefits of wheatgrass and where can you buy wheatgrass?

Wheatgrass is young wheat that is grown 7-10 days, cut and juiced at its most nutrient rich stage of life.  One ounce of fresh wheatgrass juice is equivalent to 2.5 pounds of deep leafy greens and contains almost every known vitamin & nutrient. Ann Wigmore first started using and teaching about wheatgrass in the early 1900’s where she used it to heal herself from cancer. She taught the use of wheatgrass along side her Raw Food Diet as the ingredients for an optimum health lifestyle. She also began the Hippocrates Health Institute, then in Boston, helping to heal thousands with her teachings.  Slowly, but surely, people recognized wheatgrass’ miracle healing qualities.

Scientific studies were performed that suggested wheatgrass helps in ulcerative colitis , improve toxicity from chemotherapy in breast cancer patients, reducing requirements for blood transfusions and many more. Perfect Foods brought wheatgrass to the East Coast back in 1982 before the health food industry had any foundation and now wheatgrass is one of the most up and coming health food products in the health food and even mainstream industries! The countless miraculous stories of fighters from every disease that swear by wheatgrass and the many scientific studies that prove its effectiveness is what makes it so popular.

So, what exactly are the wheatgrass benefits?

1. Provides Almost Every Known Vitamin and Nutrient

Researchers were perplexed when analysis showed that almost every known vitamin and nutrient known needed to sustain life was contained in wheatgrass. The main components it contains are:

  • Vitamins: A, B-Complex, C, D, & E
  • Minerals: Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Selenium, Zinc ect
  • Amino Acids: The essential building blocks needed to build and maintain a healthy functioning body
  • Live Enzymes: Break down food and are vital catalysts in the digestion process in your body. Unaltered live enzymes can only be found in freshly juiced wheatgrass — not the powdered or pilled stuff.
  • Chlorophyll: The pigment in plants that converts the sun’s energy into glucose and has a remarkably similar chemical composition to hemoglobin which provides oxygen to your blood. Chlorophyll cleanses and detoxifies your blood.
  • Grass Juice Factors – Although scientists have yet to isolate and identify them, mammals can’t grow and reproduce optimally without mysterious essential nutrients that occur only in grass!

If you don’t get enough veggies in your diet, which, let’s be honest, you probably don’t, wheatgrass is the easy answer. Just an ounce of wheatgrass is equivalent to 2.5 pounds deep leafy greens. This is the power shot, energy boost and daily dose of vitamins and minerals that can ensure you are receiving almost everything that you need to be healthy.

2. Major Detox: Detoxifies the Organs and Gastrointestinal Tract

Let’s be real, you’re probably over due a detox. From all the toxins we consume every day, poor food choices and combining, drugs like antibiotics that screw with our good bacteria and who knows what else, chances are your gut isn’t working properly. Sometimes you don’t even realize that it isn’t working properly until you see symptoms in different areas like skin, headache, eye-sight etc. Your gastrointestinal tract is vital in maintaining your body’s overall health and wheatgrass cleanses, detoxifies and replenishes the gut with the necessary vitamins and minerals for healthy functioning.

3. Extremely Alkaline

Again, I’ll repeat, you are surrounded by toxins and these toxins are making your body acidic. Off the top of my head some of the most toxic substances on earth are present in our daily lives. That includes everything from your toothpaste, shampoo, drier sheets, detergents and artificial sweeteners to the preservatives and pesticides in your food, cigarettes and pollution in the air. You probably don’t even realize how much toxic intake you consume but your body does and these toxins are hella acidic. NEWS FLASH: disease thrives in acidic environments so it’s no wonder disease is on the rise along side toxins. But have no fear: wheatgrass is extremely helpful in alkalizing and normalizing your body’s pH because It is one of the most alkaline foods you can put in your body. Once you have enough wheatgrass where your system is clean it creates a turbulent environment for disease to survive and can start to heal in other ways.

4. Energy boost you need

We all need it. Wheatgrass benefits are the healthy and effective alternative that provide you with energy by providing outrageous vitamins and nutrients needed to keep you healthy. I know, you like your coffee, but coffee just isn’t a good option. It’s addictive and it has countless harmful long term side effects that you can’t afford. For all the money you spend on coffee you could be spending it on wheatgrass which provides you with energy by enabling your body instead of disabling it.

5. Astronomically high in chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is the blood of plant life that closely resembles human red blood cells . The high levels of chlorophyll increase the levels of oxygen in the blood and helps cleanse and release toxins from the body. Increasing oxygen in your blood helps purify your blood and organs which helps push the toxins out.

6. Helps fight disease

Diseases live and thrive in acidic and toxic environments. Wheatgrass’s enzymes, antioxidants, alkalinity and nutrient rich nature creates a hostile environment that makes it difficult for many diseases to survive. Wheatgrass benefits have been known to help:

  • Cancer
  • Inflammation
  • Acne
  • Arthritis
  • Skin conditions: Rashes, Psoriasis, ect.
  • Bad Breathe/Yellow Teeth
  • Infertility
  • Aging Skin
  • Body Odor
  • Poor circulation
  • Blood Sugar Disorders
  • Indigestion
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Bowl Problems
  • Scarring
  • Diabetes
  • Bacterial Infections
  • Pain


7. Improves your immune system

Ultimately, wheatgrass provides your body with all other essential ingredients for optimal health so that it can naturally heal itself. All of the vitamins, minerals and amino acids are in their simplest form for optimal digestion and immediate absorption into the blood stream to give your immune system the ultimate boost it needs. With a strong immune system backed up by wheatgrass your body can be stronger than any disease that comes its way! When healthy and provided with the optimal nutrients, your body is a warrior that is undefeated.

8. Helps Weight Loss

Wheatgrass reduces cravings for fatty and sugary foods and also for addictive substances.

9. Contains Everything in its simplest form for immediate absorption and digestion!

Wheatgrass is made up of everything in its simplest form. It contains amino acids, the building blocks of protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and live enzymes that are already broken down and ready for immediate absorption into the blood stream. This is why you get such a kick when you drink it! This is also why it is good to have 2 shots in the morning and 2 shots in the afternoon to replenish your body throughout the day.

10. Helps maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle

With an abundance of energy and nutrients, your body will be so healthy that it will effect your entire lifestyle. It is not secret that your health is dependent on your mind, body and spirit. Wheatgrass benefits is what rejuvenates your body with Green Gold. With a healthy body, your mind  and spirit can be clear and positive leading to a more rewarding and stress free life!



How much should I drink?

Wheatgrass is extremely potent so we suggest to start off drinking 1 ounce a day everyday for 4-5 days. You will start to feel lighter, cleaner and more energized. For optimum results we suggest 2-4 ounces, optimally 2 ounces in the morning and 2 ounces in the afternoon. If you are fighting a degenerative disease like cancer you may want to drink even more depending on your dedication and individual case.

With or without food?

Without! Drink it on an empty stomach!

Will I feel Sick?

If you drink it on an empty stomach, no. But if you do, that means that you probably need it and your body isn’t used to that much concentrated health.

What about powders, pills and bottled wheatgrass?

FRESH IS BEST! You don’t need much more than common sense to realize that. Powders and pills are dried, heated, pasteurized, or processed which alter if not destroy the vital vitamins and nutrients that wheatgrass provides. The main reason wheatgrass is so amazing for you is because it is cut straight from the live tray and juiced right in front of you with the live enzymes, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants still intact! Once the juice is bottled on the shelf for over 30 minutes it loses almost all of the its nutritional value that it has when it is juiced fresh. See our Fresh, Powdered, Pilled, Bottled Wheatgrass: Which is best blog for more information.

Where can I get it?

Wheatgrass Adds 20 Years to his Life

Harley’s Wheatgrass Stories: 

Hi! My name is Harley Matsil, the owner of Perfect Foods, and I have been in the health food industry for well over 30 years. Throughout the years I have witnessed countless miracles due to wheatgrass, and I would like to share one with you that is dear to my heart.

This story is dedicated to all the free spirited people out there that enrich the world every day.  Everyone knows someone that has the effortless ability to illuminate the room with his or her presence and make those around them feel energized, enlivened, and inspired.  With just a smile they dance through life, even through the hardest of times, and inspire you to dance as well. Well, that was my friend Dana Liberman.

Dana lived in Queens and worked at Integral Yoga, one of my very first accounts in Manhattan.  He was a kind and lively man that held an event called the “Barefoot Boogie.”  It was for hardworking individuals from all over the area to let their free spirits go on a Saturday night and dance the night away.  He helped people everyday whether it was by providing them with nature’s health products or by giving them the time and place to leave the stresses of life behind and just enjoy.

No matter how spectacular a man, his story reads similar to most.  He was diagnosed with bone cancer; he was far advanced and his time was almost up. When we heard the news, we began to deliver to him regularly: 3 trays of wheatgrass, 2 trays of sunflower sprouts, and 1 tray of buckwheat.  I personally was delivering them for a long time, so it was about this time that I began to know and, most importantly, love him.

Week after week we would deliver to him, and every week Dana could hardly wait for the delivery to come. He swore that using a large quantity of wheatgrass fought his cancer. He said the cancer was still there, but he knew the wheatgrass was weakening it because the pain was heightened in the absence of it. He taught us one of the most valuable methods of drinking wheatgrass: have it multiple times throughout the day to reduce the most pain and result in the highest overall effectiveness.  He claimed the periods of the day directly after he drank his wheatgrass were when he felt the least amount of pain. Later, my team and I came to realize the reason for that was because wheatgrass contains everything in its simplest form and when ingested goes directly into the bloodstream to be used immediately wherever it is needed.  With a serious illness like bone cancer there is a lot to be fixed, so by replenishing your blood with wheatgrass regularly throughout the day you are giving your body the extra help it needs to keep fighting back.  Dana would say that inevitably the pain always returned, but the wheatgrass kept him from feeling excruciating pain all day, every day.

Knowing that, we made Dana our priority.  In fact, back then when we weren’t expert growers, we had to harvest a few crops just to get 2 or 3 pounds; they went to Dana. We never missed a delivery to him in 25 years. In fact, one day our car broke down in the middle of the Queens route (we always had pain-in-the-ass car troubles) and the next day I offered to personally deliver to Dana since I hadn’t seen him in years. I walked up his steps and to the foot of his door where two women stood deciding whether or not to let me in. Finally, one of them said, “ I think that’s the guy that saved Dana Liberman. He brought the wheatgrass.” It seems this is how a lot of my stories go.

Years after that, I was in Queens and I called him. He came outside to meet me, and with tears in his eyes he said wheatgrass had added 8 years to his father’s life and 20 years to his.  Dana passed away not long after that, but his spirit will always remain with me.

My name is Harley Matsil, the owner of Perfect Foods, and I would like to share one of my many touching wheatgrass stories with you.

Wheatgrass Saved Juvenile Arthritis

Working in the health food industry, I meet a lot of sickly people desperate for help. One of these people was my friend Willie.  She was a nutritional consultant at a health food store called Jandi’s on Long Island and a long time customer of ours. Her daughter, sadly, had juvenile arthritis and lived in excruciating pain and inflamed wrists every day.

This is a story of how wheatgrass saved Juvenile arthritis. This type of arthritis is recognized as a “terminal illness” in the western medical world and Willie’s daughter had little hope for a day with out pain. However, Willie’s daughter told her story and sweared to have felt significantly better immediately after using wheatgrass in her diet.

For years we delivered wheatgrass and sprouts to their home (we still do to this day), and got to know them as loyal customers, dear friends, and beautiful people.

A few years ago I decided to stop by their house personally. After Willie greeted me outside, she poked her head into the house and whispered to her daughter, “Come out and tell Harley what you told me this morning.” Her daughter, now in her teens, tip toed out to meet me and as she wiggled her hands and wrists in a circle, she cried, “I am able to do this because of you.” As tears rolled down her cheek, she explained how hard it was to constantly be in pain all day every day. When she started to drink wheatgrass, she KNEW it was working. “I ate pizza not too long ago,” she insisted, “and my wrist started to hurt again.”  I looked at her mother Willie, and we both had a slight smile. It was clear thatwheatgrass saved juvenile arthritis nourishing her body with greens, chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals.

There is nothing more miraculous than seeing a child in pain feel that there is some hope. No child should have to be told there is no cure to their condition. With support, love and a healthy diet, our stories show there is nothing your body can’t heal on its own.

Harley's Wheatgrass Stories:

Harley’s Wheatgrass Stories: 
This one is dear to my heart.

My name is Harley, the owner of Perfect Foods, and I have been in the health food industry for over 30 years. Unfortunately, over the span of my career, I have sold wheatgrass to hundreds of sick individuals that became close friends of mine and my top priorities.  I have numerous inspiring anecdotes and I would love to share one with you that is dear to my heart.

Early in my career, a middle aged man came to me with lymphatic cancer. He asked me if I could teach him how to grow wheatgrass on his own. My team and I remembering why we started this business — to help people — naturally decided to help this man. We gathered the supplies (soil, young trays, a misting bottle, and a shop light) and I drove to his home in Spring Valley where I spent a long, memorable 6 hours with him, his wife and his son.  We sat down and wrote the detailed steps of how to grow it, where to grow it and every individual precaution you could think of (you’d be surprised how many factors there are to growing perfect wheatgrass). When I left him, he was in full operation.  He had young wheatgrass that I brought, babies he just started growing and seeds soaking that we just soaked together. All he had to do was continue to harvest, water, and rinse.

After I left that day a long time passed that I didn’t hear from him. He found his own soil supplier and kept to himself.  However, as most of my stories go, a year later or so he called to order some seeds and I could tell something was different. There was a new excitement  and liveliness in his voice when he revealed the news, “My doctor said I am CANCER FREE!” He explained that the doctors were so baffled they declared it a misdiagnosis. They claimed the cancer was said to be terminal and there could be no other explanation. However, a misdiagnosis from 3 separate doctors is highly unlikely — impossible almost. Whether the doctors wanted to believe it or not, the therapy to this “terminal illness” was drinking 4 ounces of wheatgrass every day and ridding red meat from his diet– that’s it.

Years passed and I heard from him every once in a long while. About 10 years later, he called and left a message. I returned the call and his son answered the phone. When I introduced myself as Harley, the wheatgrass guy, the young man anxiously asked if I was the one who taught his father how to grow grass years ago. As I replied, “Yes,” I could hear his breaths grow shorter until they became full sobs into the phone. Finally, after a few precious moments, he caught his breath and gratefully whispered, ” You are the man that saved my father’s life.”

Perhaps another 10 years went by when I was doing an in store demo at Back To Earth in New City. While I was offering a customer fresh wheatgrass, I heard someone say, “Could that be Harley?” There he was, still alive and well, now 20 years since I met him. He continued to drink wheatgrass every single day and couldn’t have looked better for all that he had been through.

For the rest of the day he stood by my side passionately insisting to every person that listened that my words were true and I had surely saved his life.
