Make Your Own Wheatgrass and Living Bread

Wheatgrass juice is a rich, green chlorophyll drink, extremely high in enzymes and nutrition. Wheatgrass is easy to grow and ensures a supply of fresh, live vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids. The juice can be extracted using a specialized juicer, and is great to drink straight or in a smoothie. You can also simply chew the grass, which is extremely beneficial for the teeth and gums.

Sprouted wheat berries can also be used to make living essene breads, which are very helpful if you’re trying to maintain a totally raw diet. See page 4 for some simple essene bread recipes, and don’t miss out on the recipe for ‘raw pizza’ using a sprouted wheat crust! (Page 5)

For those who are not familiar with wheatgrass, consider the following list of benefits experienced by individuals who have adopted a wheatgrass regimen.

  • Stronger immune system
  • General detoxification
  • Better digestion
  • More energy and better sleep
  • Improved eyesight
  • Healthier teeth and gums
  • Reduced inflammation in the entire body
  • Lessened appetite cravings
  • Increased mental clarity
  • Steadier nerves

Don't remember seeing wheatgrass being sold anywhere - at least not to grow it.

This will help my transition towards raw foodism! Giving up meat will be hard, but judging by what I've read so far, it will improve my health tenfold! I'm getting excited about planting wheat berries in the salad table I built last year, it's waist(ish)-high, and about 2.5' x 5' or 6', has three sections, and will grow these beautifully!!!
