Wheatgrass is an amazing plant. It has so so so so so so so many health benefits that I'm amazed it's not mandatory for all humans to take a shot of this delicious green substance every single day.
It was actually discovered by farmers way back in the day when they realized that when they fed their animals wheatgrass, the health of the animals soared WAY up. Dying animals who consumed wheatgrass recovered and then SURPASSED their previous health levels.
This stuff is pure gold. I've only begun to learn about it in recent months, but I'm SO interested. My sisters began growing their own a couple months ago and I needed to join in. My sister Gretchen recently gave me a portion of her wheatgrass kit -- including the juicer it came with -- and I was good to go! (THANKS, GRETCH!) The wheatgrass you see above is the first batch I've ever grown, and you guys, it took me ONE week to grow this from scratch. ONE WEEK.
I just took a shot of it and it was so delicious. You always hear about people hating the taste, but I honestly can't understand why. It's fresh and sweet, and reminds me of the taste of homegrown pea pods. I have to be honest and tell you that my stomach does feel a little weird because of it. This is only my third time drinking wheatgrass, so my body's not yet used to it. It's a common thing that happens to lots of people who have wheatgrass for the first time -- there are so many nutrients and it detoxifies you body so intensely that it may make you feel a little ill until you're used to it. But trust me, it's worth it.
If you guys haven't had wheatgrass yet, you should totally try it. It's an amazing thing that belongs in everyone's life. FOR REAL, YO.
