Grasshopper (Wheatgrass-Apple Juice)

I cut my first wheatgrass today! What a happy day! I had juiced for 9 years, daily, barely missing a day, then moved here to Ecuador, finally got the tip where to buy the wheatgrass seeds. Then, I had to wait for my wheatgrass juicer from the states, started growing it 9 days ago, and cut the wheatgrass at 6 inches! Woohooo. Tasted it – yep, that’s wheatgrass all right!. And here I can grow it all year outside, as opposed to having to grow it inside most of the year in Montana! I went a year without wheatgrass, shocking!  For me it was so meaningful, because 9 years ago I had started to go through Menopause, with hot flashes, sore chest and great emotions. Then my daughter, Rachel sent me a simple, hand grinder and a wheatgrass kit for Mother’s Day. From the very day I started drinking 2-4 ounces a day of fresh wheatgrass juice, I never, ever, ever had another symptom of menopause. Never. That’s why it’s so meaningful to me.
