About Me

I can sprout and sometimes do - I have grown wheat grass, but have not juiced it. I know the merits and the hows and the whys but can not figure out how to make this fit into my routine on an on going basis. I won't give up trying but I sure hope this forum can get me there quicker. I seem to be stuck on a corner.

Hi Kalieha,

definitely don't give up hope. It's best to start very slowly. l would recommend growing a tray of wheatgrass and juicing 1 - 2 oz per day and follow up with some fruit 30 minutes later to avoid any nausea. Probably best to have this in the mornings.

You can also grow two big jars (3 liter jars/6 quart jars) of green sprouts (alfalfa, fenugreek, brocolli, clover etc) each day and blend. It will taste strong when you initially start drinking it, but it will get easier over time and you WILL feel the benefits after a short time. Some people may get benefits immediately while others like myself never felt anything for 3 months. When you start to adapt to the diet and it's strong taste you can then move onto juicing these large jars of sprouted greens. So, two jars a day means 14 large jars a week - that doesn't take much time, and that can be up to 14 oz (500 ml) of green juice each day from a juicer or some big blended drinks. I can maintain 14 jars easily in less than an hour, more like 30 minutes including dehulling the various sprouts. Much much cheaper than buying vegetables, and much better for you for so many reasons.

Also try adding raw powdered kelp to water as a drink some time during the day. It is worth it and you will adjust to the extremely strong taste and will learn to enjoy it. But do these things slowly as you feel ready to have them. As you get healthier you will add more and more of these type of foods in.

You might also want to sprout sesame seeds in a jar for 1 - 2 days and eat these for lunch or dinner, and you may also want to soak nuts for a day and eat/blend those for various meals.

Don't worry about over eating at first, but keep on consuming those green sprouts like l suggested.

It doesn't take much to do those things, but be prepared to spend an hour a day growing and preparing the sprouts. We all think that it's all hard work, but that's a symptom of modern day thinking. We need to go back to our roots and start working on growing our own food again because it is worth it and changes they way we see things. It just means less t.v and more getting back to nature.

If you start doing this and make an everyday commitment, l can promise you will not regret it.

I haven't had a day off from sprouting for years, it's part of my everyday lifestyle now, it's second nature to me.

l'll have to provide an in depth to sprouting soon.
