It must have been a good 6 months since I last juiced wheatgrass! On Saturday I have my first trip to the store since my snowboarding accident so I got to pick up stuff that jumps out at me rather than pre-preparing a list, and the wheatgrass was definitely jumping into my cart! Excitement :)
I had forgotten how good it is to wake up in the morning and have a refreshing shot of the green goodness, chased by a fresh wedge of orange. So much so that I stood over the sink and ate the whole orange with my hands, juice dripping everywhere, just like you do as a child. Bliss. Kids know how to eat food.
If you are considering buying a juicer, do look into masticating juicers that can do wheatgrass – they’re worth the extra investment for the enjoyment you get out of it, and your body will thank you.
Yum! I’ve been thinking about getting one of those ‘manual’ wheat grass juicers – for now it’s Amazing Grass :-)
Masticating juicers are the best! I highly recommend them Michelle!

I don’t know anything about wheat grass, but I hear it’s good for you. Can you blend up wheat grass? Like in a vita-mix? Would you be able to get the same effect from it?
It is good for you TA. Rumor has it that you can blend in a blender like a VitaMix or Blendtec because they are powerful enough (and designed in such a way) that they will break it down and help you digest it. Can’t taste great though but here are some wheatgrass smoothie recipes out there you could try – do a good search.
Mostly, it’s suggested that you juice it. Remember cows need four stomachs to digest grass!
I just love my wheatgrass with a slice of fresh orange. Nice blog. Thanks! Raw Chef Dosa
Wheatgrass is the elixir of the gods…the host of health benefits are AMAZING. Hippocrates Health Inst in W Palm Beach Florida uses it and sings it praises. Great stuff!!! nom nom nom
