The Greens House

Back in time... This is a picture of The Greens House back in the 90s! This is where it all began! In the picture you can see many of Ann Wigmore's recommended sprouts. There is Sunflower greens, buckwheat, barley grass and of course wheatgrass.

Quote From A Living Foods Proponent

"We are living in an age where eating lots of raw foods is essential. Cooking destroys many of the vitamins, all of the enzymes, chelated minerals, nucleic acids, and chlorophyll. The heat disorganizes the protein structure, leading to deficiency of some of the essential amino acids. This complete protien starvation contributes to premature aging. To compensate for this, many individuals eat lots of protein foods which stress the eliminative organs with much waste. The buildup of waste eventually leads to degenerative diseases. All cooked foods induce an infectious condition. White blood cells increase significantly after such a meal. If the diet is at least 80% raw, this does not occur. Man is the only animal that cooks food and man is the most diseased creature. Reasearchers all over the world are showing us that the body is self-healing when it is nourished on living foods and fresh juices."

How much Wheatgrass Juice to drink?

If you are just starting wheatgrass juice, here is some basic advice to keep you going!

1. Start with 1 Ounce of Juice a Day! Gradually build up to 2 ounces over the period of about 2-3 weeks. You don't need much to see effects in your energy levels and overall health!

2. Drink it on an empty stomach and don't eat for about 30 minutes after drinking it. This allows the grass juice to absorb fast and effective so you get the full benefit.

3. Keep about 1 flat a week going per person.. each flat yields about 12 ounces of juice.
If you keep a regular schedule it will be easier to stick with growing it! It is so easy to grow and requires just basic maintenance of watering once a day.

4. If you get tired of drinking wheatgrass, don't give up! You can switch over to barley grass juice which has the same nutritional benefits but is not so sweet, it has a completely different flavor and can help you keep going!

Let us know if you have any questions!
