Yep, we got a new toy!
BUT, this one is actually a practical and responsible purchase, (unlike almost EVERYTHING else we want to buy, ha ha)!!
We bought a Juicer!!
So now we can enjoy the health benefits of things that we might otherwise not take advantage of, like wheatgrass!
|just a few of the things i remembered to take photos of...|
First you sprout the seeds overnight, and then spread them on some soil and wait. After a few days you will start to see the grass grow!
Then you snip off the amount of grass you want to juice!!
The best way to extract the juice from wheat grass is not by the juicer that we bought, but it works. If you wrap the grass in chard like this before you put it into the juicer it works better, and then follow it up with a cucumber or something else that has a high juice content.
I forgot to take a photo of the juice, only the empty glass!!
Another thing to consider, that if you have a cat, expect them to LOVE the wheat grass, at least our does!!
If you don't have a juicer there is still benefits in the sprouts alone!
We have several jars of sprouts going, (broccoli, alfalfa, and bean sprouts), here is our wheat berry sprouts...
Sprouts have enormous benefits for you.
Here are just a few reasons you should totally sprout for yourself!!
During the sprouting process new and higher quality proteins and other nutrients are produced. Tests have shown that the nutrients in seeds and nuts are anywhere from 50% to 400% greater after sprouting or soaking.
Because sprouts are living, growing food sources, they have a rich supply of enzymes. This quality makes sprouts easily assimilated and metabolized by the body.
So you see sprouting, it is easy and so good for you!
Even if you do not take my advice i hope you.....
