~ Growing Wheat Grass ~

Soak the wheat berries overnight then keep them covered and in a sprouting jar for another 12-24 hours. They should at this point have a white shoot.

Two days high....

Wheat grass is not as complicated as I thought it would be. I have tried it once before and threw out the sprouted wheat berries thinking they were moldy. I have now come to understand white sometimes on shoots can be fibers. They are supposed to be there in order to take root. I have now been growing my wheat grass only two days and it is two inches high. All I have done is soak the wheat berries overnight and then let them produce a shoot. Once they had opened up and begun growing a sprout I placed them in my sprouter kit. I rinse them twice a day and the are continuing to to grow....Woo Hoo !!

Four days high.....


  1. Hey TJyl,
    Thanks for the compliment on my blog. Yours is great! Love all the photos. When I first went raw, I made all the fancy dishes, but now I mainly eat very basic stuff like fruits, seeds, salads and smoothies. But I have to say, your Raw Chocolate Pie is making my mouth water! LOL. YUMMMM...

    I would love to grow wheat grass but I'm allergic to the grass. My Naturopathic Doctor told me I can drink wheat grass but stay away from the grass! lol. Eventually, I expect my allergy to wheat grass to go away, along with my asthma.

    I am about a quarter of the way through PH Miracle. Everything I read relating to raw foods is just so amazing to me. When you think about it, being healthy is just so simple. Maintain a raw diet, keep the ph balanced and exercise.

    Daily I get emails from my church to pray for folks who are sick and I sit here, shaking my head, thinking if they only understood the importance of diet. But when I try to tell people, they look at me like I'm crazy and say, "I could never do that!" So I usually tell them, "I guess it just depends on how important it is to live a healthy life." I've actually had some people say they'd rather eat whatever they want and die young than to live a long life eating rabbit food. So sad.

    Oh well, keep up the good work.
    Abundant blessings,
    Victoria =)

  2. Hi Victoria !! (:
    It is human nature to gravitate towards doing the wrong or easy thing. The world does not understand they are killing themselves slowly. These people don't realize they are slaves to what they eat, rather just enjoying their food they feel they need it. It is addiction that keeps them eating until they die. After you eat green foods the body changes over and craves it and feels nourished and clean. It feels as though you have been released from prison the bondage of addiction and feeling unwell all the time. Keep reading that book it will change your life and you will be able to drink wheat grass without any worry. I find the foods that are highly alkalining can be a challenge due to the die off effect. Go slowly and gently. Try less aggressive grens to being with like cucumber/celery juice everyday. So glad to hear from you Victoria and keep in touch !!
    God Bless You,
