I've seen wheatgrass advertised from time to time over the years, but never gave it a second thought. Why? Simply put, in my experience, the taste was wretched.
But when I saw the lone pallet of grass at Greenwise last week, I felt the need to own it. And since the impulsive need to own, well, anything is far from uncommon for me, I decided to think about it. After all, it was a twenty dollar piece of sod.
I used the same methodology as I do with clothes, shoes, make-up, appliances, gadgets, electronics, everything. If I go home and never give it a second thought, then I must not have wanted said thing all that badly. However, if I found it was all I could think about and it made an appearance or two in my day dreams and night dreams alike - there must be a need.
I'm somewhat sad to say that wheatgrass crossed my mind that many times in one week that I allowed myself to bring the pallet home. To justify my purchase, it's going to be a "green" smoothie kind of week. And to justify the taste, I'll keep in mind that one ounce of wheatgrass contains the same amount of nutrients as 2-1/2 pounds of green veggies. That… Is a lot of veggies.
