meganthevegan: Great idea! I’ve heard you need to take your wheatgrass separately because it can lead to digestive issues, but I once took a shot, and then proceeded to eat my lunch. No issues whatsoever! :)
We grow our own wheatgrass. After reading the Ann Wigmore and
Steve Meyerowitz wheatgrass books, we learned you want to cut
the grass about one inch above the soil.
From the Wheatgrass book by Steve Meyerowitz….
Wheatgrass is mature and ready for harvest when
7-10 inches tall. Another marker is when the blade
develops a second stem. Harvest by cutting one inch
above the soil.
We did use our Green Star to juice our wheatgrass,
but found we had more foam then juice.
Raw Guru also carries the “Back to Basics” wheatgrass juicer. www.rawguru.com
The Back to Basics wheatgrass juicer produces juice, not foam!
We drink 2 oz. wheatgrass shots in the morning and at lunch.
We also juice some wheatgrass and add it to our smoothies at lunch.
You receive more benefits when you juice the wheatgrass, then add
it to your smoothies.
We have also used the wheatgrass as a face mask, put it on cuts
to heal wounds, and prevent scarring.
There is really a whole list of beneficial elements for
wheatgrass and barley grass.
I’ve only had wheatgrass shots at resturants I’m kind of worry about doing it on my own. The resturant and few cafes I’ve been to that had it were amazing. I even try to go once a week to those spots jsut for that.
