Wheatgrass is ready to juice

The first harvest of wheat grass is ready for juicing.  The little juicer I use is by Lexen and is called Healthy Juicer.  To get the most juice from our precious crop a masticating juicer offers the best value for squeezing the last drop of juice from the grass.  I drink a shot every morning that I can afford the juicing time.

My interest in wheatgrass began from a lecture I attended at the Hippocrates Institute here in West Palm Beach.  They consider themselves to be specialists on boosting the immune system through live foods, vegetarian living, and natural and complimentary health care.  Resulting in remarkable cures for a wide variety of diseases that modern medicine had not been successful with.

Wheatgrass juice contains chlorophyll, minerals, vitamins A, B complex, C, E, and K. Wheatgrass is rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein and life, making it an effective healer on a cellular level. 

Ann Wigmore claims to have cured her own cancer by juicing her front yard grass.  Ann had been sickly most of her life and finally through trial, error, poverty, desperation, and love of animals she discovered sprouts and juiced grass improved her health when all other medical protocols had failed. 

I have already started the next crop of grass.  I start one every three to four days to make sure I don’t run out.  The reason for wheatgrass is the flavor.  All grasses will provide similar nutrients that is why grass fed animals taste different than grain fed animals.  I wonder if the grains were sprouted then fed to the animals if they would be healthier?
