Wheat Grass

Yes, it is grass, generally grown in indoor flats for making juice and yes, people actually drink it. The juice extracted from the young blades of this super food detoxifier is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available. Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life, the “blood of plants”. Another exciting piece of information about chlorophyll, it is the first product of light containing more light energy than any other element.

    Serious wheat grass aficionados grow flats of it and juice their own at home.

    You could very well head to your nearest juice bar and get a shot of it however, growing flats of wheat grass is very simple, it’s as easy as sprouting. In fact that is essentially the process, we are germinating or sprouting seeds with adequate water and moisture. It takes approximately 6 – 10 days from seed to harvest. I stumble upon this site, The Wheat Grass Grower’s Guide, dedicated to wheat grass; full of information with in-depth instructions on how to grow it.

    Once you’ve got a crop of home grown grass from 6 inches tall or more it is ready to harvest. Cut grass just above the soil then take a bunch and run through a wheat grass juicer. Fresh is best so cut just prior to juicing. It is recommended to go slow, drinking low doses when starting out, as little as 1 fluid ounce = 1/8 cup = 30 ml, and gradually increasing up to 1 -2 ounces per day, or possibly more.

    Wheat grass has a sweet, yet intense distinctly grassy taste. If drinking a shot of it is too intense try mellowing the intense taste by mixing it with other vegetables juices, such as carrot. It tastes great mixed with apple juice too.

    Growing and making your very own rejuvenating super food green drink is one of the best things you can do for your health. Visit Natural Living Cuisine Store and shop for organic wheat grass seeds, trays or a juicer.
