Adding Wheatgrass to Your Diet
Blend your own wheatgrass juice. If you're planning on drinking wheatgrass every day, consider making your own fresh wheatgrass juice. You can buy the tender wheatgrass shoots or grow it. You'll need to blend it in a blender designed just for wheatgrass, so the shoots don't clog the blender. Strain the wheatgrass through a mesh strainer and refrigerate it until you're ready to drink it.
Mix up wheatgrass powder. Purchase wheatgrass powder from a natural food store. Look for a powder that's made with wheatgrass juice instead of dried and ground wheatgrass. Your body will absorb the wheatgrass better if it's been processed already. Put the powder into a blender along with your liquids and sweeteners of choice. Blend the mixture until it's smooth. For a sweet wheatgrass drink, blend together:
Take wheatgrass tablets. If you don't have the time to mix up wheatgrass or you don't like drinking it, you can buy wheatgrass supplements. These usually come in tablet form and should just contain wheatgrass powder. Some supplements might also have rice powder to bind the wheatgrass powder into tablet form. Follow the manufacturer's instructions about dosing.
Use wheatgrass in salads. Try adding fresh wheatgrass shoots to your salad greens. Keep in mind that these may be harder to digest than the juice or powder. If you prefer, mix the wheatgrass juice into a salad dressing or sprinkle wheatgrass powder onto your salad.
