That's just my humble opinion. And my taste-buds.
To those of you that scoff at my green-smoothies,
(you know who you are, Mary and Luny:).
You should taste this stuff!
Having said that, some people don't mind the taste.
Because it's so incredibly healthy, I chug-a-lug some every day.
It's supposedly wonderful for pets too.
I buy it from my local market. It's apparently not that difficult to grow it yourself,
but I don't have the room, or the patience.
Usually people hold the top of the grass and cut the bottom with a knife.
But knives freak me out!
So I use my trusted kitchen scissors. And feel safer for it.
(Yeah, yeah - I know I'm a wuss!)
I cut it all and stick it in two freezer-bags. Then it goes into the refrigerator.
I take a handful and give it a little rinse.
This is my juicer. I bought it years ago. Unfortunately, the price has gone up.
Available on Amazon.com, of all places. Remember when they only sold books?
If I can't find an obscure item anywhere, I can usually find it there.
Now I go there first.
I stick some wheatgrass in the chute, with the pointy-tips down.
And let the juicer do its thing.
Look how it grinds every bit of juice, out of those blades of grass!
I pour the juice from the bowl, into the glass, so that I don't waste any.
That thing looks like something the cat hacked-up!
(I bet I made wheatgrass sound even more appealing to you now.)
Here it is, my two ounces of...
Let's just say, "healthy stuff".
After I've emptied the glass of every drop, I chase it down with this....
A big ol' honkin' slice of raw, Chocolate-Raspberry Cake!!
(I wait a few minutes.)
If any of you are interested in learning more about this, 'healthy stuff',
I highly recommend this book by Ann Wigmore:
I love all things "Ann Wigmore"!! (OK, maybe not the hairdo.)
If I had the time, I would love, love, love to go to either one of these places!!
"The Ann Wigmore Foundation Retreat" in New Mexico.
Or the "Ann Wigmore Natural Health Institute" in Puerto Rico.
Healthy eating and gorgeous surroundings - what's not to love?!!
I've used this quote by Ann Wigmore before, but I think it it fits this post as well.
"Think of nourishing the body, rather than eating."
I hope you all enjoy the 'healthy stuff'!!
There are SO many things to love!
I love "Followers" and comments too!
Signing off for now,
