There’s lots of conflicting information on the web about the stuff, so it’s best you have a look and judge for yourself. There are claims that it is detoxifying and super high in vitamins and minerals. There are claims that wheat grass is heavily overrated. Have a look and judge for yourself.
Last night I decided that after a weekend of junk and cake-testing *see here* I needed to start the week off right. I needed to alkalise a little bit, and be a mean green health machine. I’m happy to confirm that after this juice, my partner and I went on an hour long walk that made us feel even better! Which is good, because my cardio has been non-existent since losing the treadmill. We wold have walked longer, but the other had work. I will note that I accidently forgot to bring keys and so we had to climb this tiny window to get in!
Anyway, this juice was disgusting. Wheatgrass tastes disgusting, and there’s no way of getting around it. But we knew that, and so we drank it. Or what my partner calls it: we had to “smash it down”. To make for 2, we juiced a whole bunch of kale, about 1 cup wheatgrass and a whole lemon. I added water to mine, to mellow it out, but that didn’t help.
But why did I force myself to drink that wheatgrass, you ask? For those of you who don’t know much about the stuff, I’m going to share with you a little bit of information. It grows from wheat seed and looks like this:
You can trim the grass and it’ll keep growing back.
