Heal With Wheatgrass & Sprouts

Juicing is totally awesome—juicing sprouts & wheatgrass is even better!

Touted by many as the most nutritional foods on the planet, I was turned on to these gems during my stay at the renowned Hippocrates Health Institute. Today, grass & sprouts remain as centerpieces of our juicing routine.

Sprouts and wheatgrass are “living foods” (look at the picture & really take this in).

Wheatgrass/Sprout Facts

  • Wheatgrass is the young grass of the Triticum aestivum plant

  • Sprouts/grass require a masticating juicer

  • Wheatgrass contains the highest chlorophyll and phytonutrient content of any food

  • 2oz of wheatgrass has more nutritional value than 5 lbs. of organic greens.

  • Sprouts have many times more phytonutrients, enzymes, and antioxidants than non-sprouted varieties

  • Loaded with amino acids

  • Fresh wheatgrass is best, but wheatgrass powder is a great second option

  • Gluten-free & Vegan-ha!


  • Reduces inflammation & increases alkalinity, preventing cancer & chronic diseases

  • Reduces free radicals

  • Promotes apoptosis (self-destruction of cancerous cells)

  • Restores fertility and balances hormones

  • Detoxifies the body/liver

  • Regulates blood sugar

  • Boosts the immune system

  • Lowers cholesterol & Increases glutathione

  • Can reduce chemotherapy side effects

The Cons

  • The taste is a lot like grass clippings (just being honest). But it's nothing a little (or a lot of) lemon or lime juice won’t quell.

  • Its pungent aroma/taste makes it difficult for many people to stomach. Again, douse it with lemon/lime juice.

  • Can trigger allergies.

  • Can be harsh on the tummy, producing digestive discomfort/nausea.

Grass & Sprouts Made Easy (What We Do)

  • First, we have organic sprouts (sunflower, pea, & broccoli) & grass delivered (weekly) right to our front door from “Got Sprouts” (so convenient).

  • Give them a bath! Once you wash your produce, it's more prone to mold (especially true for grass/sprouts). So we only wash about a 3 day's supply at a time. Then, spin it several times to get the water off. Then, store them in a stainless steel spinner.

  • Always have lots of spare juicer parts --so it’s always clean!

  • We use a masticating Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer. Buy extra parts here. A couple of other good ones are the Champion Juicer or Norwalk Juicer (if you’re a Rockefeller & $$ is no object! Ha!).

  • Consume wheatgrass juice twice a day (doused with lemon/lime of course).

  • Save time/energy by making a big batch in the morning. We drink our morning juice right off the press & simply air seal our evening dose to lock in nutrition.

  • Toss in other fruits, veggies, & spices; carrots, romaine, cucumbers, apple, orange, ginger, etc.

  • Make wheatgrass cubes—then toss them in smoothies.

  • Some people try to consume on an empty stomach in order to increase absorption, we don’t concern ourselves with this. Our motto is “just get it in the tummy”.
