Wheatgrass in the house :-)

Raymond holding a flat of wheatgrass.

Last week I bought a tray of wheatgrass from Adam Kandel, Baltimore's very own "Sproutman." I have the same type of Lexen juicer that I gave last month, and I finally had the chance to use it. It's a manual juicer that requires a lot of cranking, but I felt it was worth it. And it's $100 cheaper than an electric wheatgrass juicer.

My first time out, the photograph above shows how much of the wheatgrass I used.

That much grass created this much juice. It was about two ounces. If you're new to drinking wheatgrass, start with 1-2 ounces per day. It tastes like sweet grass and is POTENT. I mixed it with 4 ounces of apple juice. The last time I had it straight (four ounces which is too much for a first-timer) I nearly threw up. Wheatgrass is a heavy detox. I've been blowing my nose for days.
I've started growing my own wheatgrass. Let me get through my first tray and see if it works! If it does, I will document my second tray to show you all how I did it!
If you want to know more about the miracle of wheatgrass, go to the site of the woman who started it all: the late Ann Wigmore.

And speaking of Ann Wigmore, I received my Home Study Program! Yipeee! It's so, so much information that it's overwhelming. The folks at say that you'll never need to buy another raw food book again, and I can see why. There is a newer, even more packed version for sale now. Here's the link: It's worth checking out.
To your health!
