Today I went out on a special shopping trip… I went to visit a wheatgrass farmer! I bought two trays full of grown green goodness, and a kilo of seeds and a few trays to start growing my own.
You may be wondering why I bought wheatgrass and not a new pair of shoes? But the fact is Wheatgrass is cool, and I will prove to you why. Wheatgrass increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body. It stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints. Its a magic bullet guys. Chop a handful and throw it in your juicer. Research suguests first thing in the morning when you break-fast gives the best results, but any time is good in my books.Just remember the nutritional content of the grass diminishes every time it grows. There is diferent studies that suguest only using the first sprout, to some that say you can use up to five times.
Let me know about your wheatgrassing experience!
Lots of love,
