I don't grow my own wheatgrass, but today I was in a health shop (pretty discouraged, everything is processed! ...the hell?!) and I bought a wheat grass shot. Then I went to the mall (I'm not really a shopper but The Girls need a new bra) and was really nauseated.
I had a full LFV raw breakfast of about 470 calories, at least 2 L of water, so I don't know if it was the wheatgrass, or the perfume samples wafting through the mall.
I normally have a stomach of iron. All I could think was "Please don't let me lose this $4 shot of wheat grass on the floor of the mall."
Also what are the nutritional stats for wheatgrass juice? Not on the cron-o-meter.
I don't consume wheatgrass. The last time I had it was around 1 year ago from a smoothie shop. I felt extremely nauseous and vomited not long afterwards. The taste was even more horrid coming back up!
If any food causes vomiting it leaves my meal plan.
Been growing and drinking it for 35 years. Down to 8 oz/day (from 1/quart/day 25 years ago). Sometimes I juice the mature grass, sometimes the (intense) green sprouts (3-4 inches tall).
Used to do bedside delivery at 5 am, literally bedside--had keys to house, woke people up (yes, couples also) for their shots (actually, 5 shots, my customers had to commit to 5 oz/day, 5 days/wk) to qualify for my service).
If they did not drink it, they were replaced on the route.
I was living in Aspen (14 years) and my customers ranged from doctors, lawyers, nurses, waitresses, bank presidents, and rock band members. (and Tom Crumb). Interesting episode of my life. I declined to expand my route 20 miles to include Goldie Hawn. (Thereby denying myself the privilege of meeting Kate Hudson--well, maybe not that great of a privilege--she was only 5 years old at the time...)
I have my grow areas--and supply to friends as well--at no charge, just exchange of unspecified, random favors. I also have a killer worm ranch in my basement--3 yards of dirt worth.
On some forums, I am "Wheatgrass".
Before I first went raw, I could drink wheatgrass and didn't mind the taste so much, and felt pretty healthy for doing it. A few months ago, (whilst unraw) I had a fresh shot at the juice bar and didn't felt too good. It upset my belly and tasted revolting.
