We know greens are good for us but if you’re not a salad fan here’s an interesting piece of info: “If you woke up to just one ounce of fresh wheatgrass juice in place of a cup of coffee, you would derive the same benefit as eating a two-pound green salad!” -Perfect Foods Inc.

Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.” –The Wheatgrass Book by Ann Wigmore

What does it taste like?
It’s got a bit of a sweet taste to it because it has simple sugar (glucose). It tastes like raw greens. I drink mine with juiced garlic and ginger which can be upsetting to some stomachs.

How do you drink it?

You can probably get some at your local health food store. It’s usually made fresh. A fistful of grass is cut from a tray full of grass, juiced and served in a small shot glass, smaller than the cup you get on a bottle of cough syrup. It’s potent. It tastes potent and drinking more than that when the body isn’t used to it can lead to nausea and even vomiting.
