STEP ONE – How to Grow Wheatgrass

Soaking and Sprouting Wheatgrass Seeds

Soak about two cups of ORGANIC wheatgrass beery seeds in water (filtered water preferred) for about 18 to 24 hours. For your convenience use a soaking tray or sprouting cup which is preferably either glass or a BPA free plastic container (plastic soaking tray shown).

WheatGrass Berry Seeds Soaking Sprouting

After about 24 hours remove the soaking wheatgrass berry seeds from your sprout container or soaking tray and lightly rinse and let drip free of water (for convenience a strainer can be used). Most seeds should show tiny white sprouts so be gentle.

STEP TWO – Organic Soil for Wheatgrass Growing

Prepare your organic soil in drip through growing tray by putting about one and one half inches of organic soil in growing tray (tray size shown aprx.= 20″ L x 10″ W x 2.5″ Deep).

Water your organic growing soil til it drips out the bottom of the growing tray (shown with water catch underneath growing tray).

STEP THREE – Azomite Mineral Soil Additive

Add a light sprinkling of azomite mineral additive to your organic soil.

Mix the azomite into soil and water lightly to push the mineral additive into the soil.

STEP FOUR – Planting Your Wheatgrass Seeds

Add your pre-soaked wheatgrass seeds on to the top of your prepared organic soil in your growing tray. Wheatgrass grows best with warm days (65 to 75 degrees) , partly to mostly sunny with medium humidity and cool nights (55 to 65 degrees). Wheatgrass will grow good indoors with mild or passive sunlight.
Northerners; in the winter keep wheatgrass growing inside near a window for sun light.
Southerners; on very hot humid days start the growing of your wheatgrass inside and near a window for sunlight. On days of high humidity and heat you may place your wheatgrass outdoors for short periods of time (three to eight hours per day depending on the humidity level) to receive sunlight. High humidity may cause mold to grow at the base of your wheatgrass. If mold does appear rinse your wheatgrass thoroughly after harvesting or before juicing or consuming.

Gently smooth out the wehatgrass seeds evenly over flat growing soil.

STEP FIVE – Covering Your WheatGrass Seeds for Optimal Growth

Sprinkle a light coating of organic soil on top of freshly spread out wheatgrass seeds.

Lightly moisten the fresh coating of cover soil.

Cover seed growing tray with a vented or upside down draining growing tray or board to keep the seeds dark until seedlings sprout into light green new wheat grass. Please do not use newspaper as some recommend, newspaper contains ink and other chemicals which may leak in to the growing process.

Notice 3 tier tray configuration; vented tray on top, draining growing tray middle, solid catch tray on bottom.

At this point you may want to add a no drip (solid bottom) growing tray underneath the wheatgrass draining growing tray to catch over watering. Adding this bottom tray properly also adds a second watering system to the roots that almost always grow through the drain holes in the bottom of wheatgrass growing tray.
SPACE BETWEEN TRAYS; the hanging roots from the top tray will need to easily reach the water in the bottom tray. Therefore, I create a space of no more than one half inch height between top and bottom tray. The spacer between trays should always be as chemical free as possible (natural wood or glass).
If used out doors only; you may want to drill an overflow in this bottom no drip catch tray at about the one inch high mark to allow an overflow to avoid over-watering/soggy conditions.
If indoors you may want to leave the bottom tray with NO holes for added protection for your floors or counters from water damage (but be careful not to over water to avoid constant soggy soil conditions).

STEP SIX – Wheatgrass Watering

Day three of wheatgrass growth cycle.
Water when soil or seeds begin to become dry (remove top to check and then replace the top cover).


Morning of day four of wheatgrass growth cycle.
Remove top cover when all grass begins to appear.


Evening of day five of wheatgrass growth cycle, yes it does grow this fast.
Water wheatgrass as it matures or feels dry. Most people can tell if the wheatgrass tray needs water by picking up the tray after watering to get a feel for the weight of a fully watered tray. When a tray drys out it becomes much lighter.

Water wheatgrass as it matures or feels dry.


STEP SEVEN – When to Harvest and Juice Wheatgrass?

Day seven of wheatgrass growing cycle pictured and time to take your first partial harvest for juicing.
Harvest wheatgrass by cutting just above the top of the soil. It is always best and optimal for nutritional and live enzymes effect to harvest and juice when wheatgrass has been freshly cut. If mold appears rinse your wheatgrass thoroughly before juicing.


STEP EIGHT – Harvesting and Storing Wheatgrass?

Day eight of the wheatgrass growing cycle pictured.
At some point in the growth cycle the wheatgrass is at an optimal nutritional juicing point. This point is just before or as the grass starts to split and begins it’s reproductive cycle. This is why I recommend to harvest all the wheatgrass at this point and juice what you need to immediately consume and store the rest in a container in the frig. Harvested or cut wheatgrass placed in a container will last about seven or eight days in a common refrigerator. Do not let harvested wheatgrass freeze and do not eat or juice wheatgrass if it has begun or has turned yellow.
High humidity during the growth cycle may cause mold to grow at the base of your wheatgrass. If mold does appear rinse your wheatgrass thoroughly before juicing or consuming raw wheatgrass.


One Time Growing Cycle for Wheatgrass and Proper Disposal

Wheatgrass is great because the growing cycle is only between seven and fourteen days. The difference in the time growing cycle is due to watering, sunlight, humidity, temperature and soil differences.
Wheatgrass can be grown and harvested only once. Please discard your post harvest growing remains properly. Proper disposal may include compost or mulch it into your outdoor garden. Organic wheatgrass growing remains have a high natural organic make up and will add to the natural value of vegetable garden soil as well as many other types of gardens.

Best Top 10 Healthy Foods and Natural Supplements

I have found these fifteen super foods or what some might call health supplements to be very healthy.
NOTE: The information on this health website is opinion based except where noted. Always contact a licensed health professional BEFORE practicing or applying any health food or health supplements.

1) Chlorella

Chlorella delivers energy and is loaded with micronutrients and antioxidants. These nutrients help reduce arterial stiffness – a problem commonly associated with high blood pressure.

2) Moringa Leaves

Moringa Leaves help reduce blood sugar and cholesterol and may also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and help protect against arsenic toxicity. Moringa leaves are known to be highly nutritious and should be be helpful to people who are lacking essential basic nutrients.

3) Spirulina

Spirulina is type of blue-green algae and may help the pineal gland cleanse. Spirulina contains a number of nutrients, including B vitamins, beta-carotene, and vitamin E. High in protein and in the vegan world it seems to be used as a source of protein. Sspirulina is known to contain antioxidants, minerals, chlorophyll, and phycocyanobilin which may be nuro protective.

4) Mint

Mint has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any food. Mint contains menthol, a natural aromatic decongestant that helps to break up phlegm and mucus and help and may also help with Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Menthol also has a cooling effect and can help relieve a sore throat, best when combined with a natural tea.

5) Beets

Beets are high in lipoic acid, one of the many antioxidants that are believed to help prevent your cells from damage caused by aging. Some studies show that beets help with the healing of nerve damage that causes pain and numbness in the hands and feet of people with diabetes. Other research suggests that beets may help lower your blood cholesterol and help with anti aging.

6) Green Tea

Green Teas are known to be associated with a number of health benefits, from increased fat burning to improved insulin sensitivity (, ).
Green teas may also contain catechins and polyphenols. Catechins and polyphenols can act as antioxidants to prevent cell damage, reduce inflammation and protect the health of your heart.

7) Garlic

Garlic may be one of the oldest “health Foods”. Recently, research has confirmed its potent medicinal properties and found that garlic can even help improve heart health. This is because of the presence of a compound called allicin, which is believed to have many therapeutic effects.
Garlic I find, like most health foods, is best taken the fresher the better.

The Health Choice is Up To You?

The drug industry is constantly trying to convince you that drugs are good for your health. This same line of nonsense is repeated by the FDA when it goes out of it’s way to censor the truth about the healing properties of natural foods like walnuts, cherries and berries and wheatgrass etc.

The drug industry and the FDA through their advertisements show happy, healthy people taking pharmaceuticals, in the real world, people who take their drugs are extremely unhealthy, depressed and highly toxic.

But don’t take my word for it: Check out the people walking in and out of pharmacies versus the people who visit health food stores:

• Most people who visit pharmacies tend to have toxic livers, poor kidney function (because drugs damage the kidneys), wild mood swings, terrible digestion and elimination capabilities, poor skin health, poor posture, low energy, sleep disorders and sexual dysfunction. They tend to be suicidal while living in chronic pain. They have huge medical expenses that often send them into bankruptcy.

Natural Health Choice• Most people who visit health food stores tend to have healthy skin, happier outlooks, better energy, better sex lives, healthy sleep, healthy hearts, healthy liver function and greatly improved brain function. They are more creative, adaptable and optimistic, and they tend to enjoy their lives. They spend relatively little on health care expenses while investing their money in organic foods, green products, medicinal herbs and nutritional supplements.

The healthy choices are up to you!

Which group would you prefer to join?

You can choose either one by deciding what to put in or on your body. If you can choose to contaminate your body with pharmaceuticals and medications and processed foods and you will experience increased liver and kidney toxicity, reduced cognitive function and skin health problems.


You can choose to nourish your body with superfoods, organic products, healing herbs and nutritional supplements and experience a more healthful and joyful life with improved brain function and memory, healthy skin, stable moods, abundant energy, restful sleep and healthy fertility, among other benefits.

Healing foods, herbs and supplements make many pharmaceuticals obsolete.

What the drug industry and the FDA absolutely do NOT want you to learn is that healing foods, herbs and supplements make virtually all pharmaceuticals obsolete. If you really knew the truth about what these items can do to protect your health and cure degenerative disease, you’d probably never take another chemical pill in your life. That’s why the FDA works so hard to censor nutritional supplements and make sure they can’t make truthful, scientifically-validated claims on their labels.

The FDA has even gone after healing foods. The scientific literature says conclusively that walnuts lower high cholesterol. It’s the natural result of eating the healthy plant-based oils in the walnuts. The FDA, however, has threatened walnut companies with fines and imprisonment for merely linking to scientific studies that describe the health benefits of walnuts.

This is how the FDA keeps people in the dark and achieves its agenda of censoring the truth about foods and supplements while promoting toxic pharmaceuticals that keep the drug companies in business.

Change your life decisions and you’ll change your health

Martin County Health Food and NutritionIt’s up to you to determine how the rest of your life will be experienced. If you continue to find yourself standing in line at the local pharmacy, or if you look in your medicine cabinet and notice a half-dozen prescriptions, let that be a wake-up call. These drugs will never give you health or happiness. They will never create the life you’re truly looking for.
Instead, take a walk to the other side of the street. Walk into a health food store. Ask the friendly staff how to get started with healthy living. These people are incredibly helpful, by the way, so don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Spend your money at the health food store instead of the pharmacy and your entire life will improve as a result. As you improve your physical health, your brain health will get better, too, and you’ll notice life getting better in many ways: Improved relationships, enhanced career (because having a healthy mind improves your job performance, too!), improved self image, increased stamina and much more.

You’ll sleep better, eat better, think better, poop better and feel better. Everything your body is supposed to do naturally will simply work better as you align yourself with the natural laws of health and nutrition. You can embrace those laws by visiting practically any health food store and taking advantage of the remarkable health-enhancing products they carry.

So find your local health food store and give them a visit! Remember, you vote with your dollars — both in terms of what industries you support as well as what health outcome you will create. If you invest your dollars in natural health products, you will get a naturally healthier result. CLICK HERE. to find a local health food store.
