If you have said "hi" to us at Farmer's Market, then you have probably noticed we grow a plant looking strangly familiar to your lawn. :) Well, surprisingly enough we are not selling astroturf. The lawn looking plant that you have seen is actually wheatgrass!!
If you are not familiar with wheatgrass, there are many ways to consume wheatgrass in a delicious way! People do everything from cooking with it, making ice cream out of it, to blending it in their daily smoothie.
Did you know, "Wheatgrass juice is an effective healer because it contains all minerals known to man, and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, l and K. It is extremely rich in protein, and contains 17 amino acids, the building blocks of protein." ?!
Still curious about why you should drink wheatgrass? Take a look at a highly popular article here from the Chalkboard Mag about the 50 reasons why you should drink wheatgrass.
Here is one of my favorite wheatgrass recipe's:
Pineapple-Wheatgrass Green Smoothie
1/2 cup green grapes
1/2 shot of wheatgrass or 1/2 packet of powdered wheatgrass
