    Frequently asked questions about Wheatgrass Juice

    Frequently Asked Questions about Wheatgrass:

    Isn't wheat or acidifying for the body?

    Fully grown, harvested, processed, milled and stored wheat is, yes. However, just like with most grains, when sprouted the wheatgrass is very alkaliine.

    Does Wheatgrass contain Gluten?

    No, wheatgrass does not contain gluten. In fact, wheatgrass is a suitable food type for those with a gluten intolerance. Although wheat grain contains gluten, wheatgrass is not a grain, it is a green vegetable and as such contains no gluten.

    How much Wheatgrass juice can you drink per day?

    It is recommended by Dr Ann Wigmore that you start drinking about 30ml of wheatgrass juice per day. After a few weeks you can increase the level of wheatgrass juice to 60ml. Over the next few months you can build up to 120ml of wheatgrass juice a day.

    Intuitive Eating - feeding on demand for adults

    Imagine being allowed to eat whatever you want to without feeling guilty.  Well, guess what? You ARE allowed to and you always have been.

    What is a Pegan and do we want to be one?

    Is it a spelling mistake? a bird? someone who doesn’t believe in God? No, its someone on the Pegan Diet.

    A mixture between a Paleo diet consisting chiefly of meat, fish, vegetables and fruit and a Vegan diet that includes no animal products of any kind. So basically a Pegan diet is a Vegan diet with a side serve of meat. Upon looking at it I think they might be onto something. It’s not really a diet, it’s just good food. Yay.
