A Mouthfull of Grass


What happens if you have wheatgrass but no way to juice it? Can you simply stuff some wheatgrass into your mouth and chew on it? Actually, you can, but it will give you one hell of a jaw workout. Just chew it, suck out the juice, and swallow it. When you can't taste any flavor anymore, spit it out. It is a good option if you don't have a wheatgrass juicer, but definately not a great substitute. I have chewed on many things over the years-- betel nuts in Taiwan, coca leaves in Bolivia, tobacco in the USA. As an expert chewer of weird things, I would have to say wheatgrass is not as tasty as coca leaves, but definitely not as disgusting as betel nuts or chewing tobacco! And if you are trying to break your chewing tobacco habit, this just might be a good substitute. And the best part is that other than maybe staining your teeth green a bit, the rest of the side effects are good ones.

You can also blend it! So in lieu of juicing it, I throw it into my morning protein smoothie (rice protein powder, blueberries, banana, flax oil and water) and it's delish!
