Wheatgrass is young sprouted wheat of 1 to 2 weeks of age. Once wheatgrass reaches a height of 12 to 20cm, it can be cut and then juiced. Due to its fibrous nature, wheatgrass is indigestible to humans, which is why it needs to be juiced and why cows need multiple stomachs to digest grass over a period of time.
Do you find it hard to get through a whole tray of wheatgrass before it turns yellow or becomes too long?

On February 13, 1999, my life changed forever. I went to the doctor for a check-up and was shocked to find that not only did I weigh 190 pounds, but that I had a lump in my breast about the size of a quarter and a large cervical tumor. My mother and her sisters had cervical and breast cancers. They chose the mainstream medical route which included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. My doctor recommended immediate surgery and that I go to another doctor for a second opinion, hospital tests, and blood work.
