Wheat Grass?

Postby Victorian » Sun Feb 21, 2010 7:25 pm

With the more research I've done, I think it's important to be your healthiest, or try and maintain your body's natural balance while battling the outside sources on the playa...

I've loved wheat grass for years, and I was thinking: for headaches, elevation changes, hangovers, and lack of proper diet(take what you can in the cooler and cook it) I was thinking.. Why not bring it to the playa??

I found these awesome, flash freezed, pre-measured packages of wheat grass, and they could also help keep coolers cool!

Any feedback ??

I gotta say, I'd rather have bacon. Or chocolate. Or peanut butter. Possibly all three together! :twisted:

But then, to be fair, I've never tried wheat grass. The packaging seems like it would be perfect.

If you enjoy it, then the answer is yes. Personally, I'm sticking with sugar, fats and salt. And ginger.

It's supposed to be alive. Freezing it sort of makes it into soda pop. Kinda. ;)

Bring your flats out to the playa, give them shade and plenty of water, then squeeze the juice on the spot. I like carrot juice with a shot of wheat grass.

Try this instead:

I can't imagine it would last very long in the heat if it's juiced... and freezing it would probably taste funky too... although I suppose it could be worth a try :)

You DO understand that (for most of you) you're only out there for a week, right?

People could live on biscuits, water and beer for that amount of time and hardly blink an eye.

Jus' sayin' people go way overboard on what they NEED out there for so short of a time.

I drink electrolytes out there religiously. Others don't think they're needed for so short a time.

If you think you need it, and the trouble is worth it, go for it.

This statement of FACT is worth repeating. Wheat grass is best when it's fresh anyway. Flash freezing...is not worth the trouble.

Here's how you decide what to take:

How many likkers can I mix this with?

If the answer is between 1-20, take it.

...plants are really contraband? I guess moop - I can't really see theoretical seeds messing with the natural landscape.

He has discovered the simple and basic discipline of DE - Do Easy.

DE is a way of doing. It is a way of doing everything you do. DE simply means doing whatever you do in the easiest most relaxed way you can manage which is also the quickest and most efficient way, as you will find as you advance in DE. -- William Burroughs


If wheatgrass follows the DE discipline for ya, I give it thumbsup.

I sure wish I could figure out a way to DE cooking bacon without the grease.

They do make precooked bacon, and it's actually pretty good.

We use shelf stable bacon, Ready Crisp makes (or made) an all natural version sans nitrates. I don't know if this is still on the market or not, but I have a stash in my pantry.

Wow. Call me a snob but that stuff looks like gag-in-a-can. I am planning on trying some bacon jerky here soon though. I've heard good things.

The minimum size to buy the frozen wheatgrass is 100 oz at 1.89 per oz. I like wheatgrass a lot but that's a big investment.

I saw caffeinated beef jerky in the store the other day.

After you candy the bacon, crumble a couple of strips and add it to chocolate chip cookie batter before baking the cookies.
What other people think about you is none of your business.
