I’ve been suffering from Anemia for years. I’ve tried doing supplements, which I am horrible at taking. I’ve tried eating all the veggies and beans that I can, and I still fall short. I recently was told that I may have Thalassemia, which is a blood disorder which involves less than normal amounts of an oxygen-carrying protein. Pretty much you are tired all the time, weakness, yellow skin and eyes.
I have tried to work at helping it with just eating a lot of leafy greens, and also beans which are high in protein. However people….you can only eat so may beans before you just want to jump off a really short bridge, into a creak. I decided I would try to up the anti a bit with juicing wheatgrass, which I was told was a great help for those who suffer from Anemia of any kind.
So, I figured why not try to grow my own. Especially when I discovered that purchasing a 1 ounce shot from a juice bar could be anywhere from $3.50 – $5. I went on youtube and looked at a few videos on “How To’s” and came up with this below. My first time around was a complete fail. The seeds sprouted, but then I forgot about them and ended up loosing a batch. BUT…..this time around I have watched them like a hawk! Watering constantly, and making sure I place them in the sun every day. So far so good!
What you see here is after about 3 days and I am not using dirt to grow them, just trays. I will take another picture in a day or two, so you all can see how much they have grown. I will be going to wal-mart this week to purchase a special wheatgrass juicer. It’s only about $30 bucks. I am told you can’t juice wheatgrass in a regular juicer, so you have to purchase Wheatgrass Juicer. But, there are many kinds out there, you don’t have to get the most expensive one. I’ll let you know how that turns out. You think you are getting over with the cheep ones sometimes, and you end up seeing the difference in what is produced from the juicer.
So, if all else fails….I’ll just put it into the Vita-Mix and Blend away and drink it! Pray for a sister, because this is a long SHOT….Get it…Wheatgrass Shot…Long Shot!! HA HA HA. Yea……ok
