Maintaining a proper diet is important for everyone, and many people have turned to sprouts and grasses as a holistic way to take in more vitamins and nutrients. Oat grass is a popular choice in edible grasses, because it's full of iron, potassium and a number of vitamins such as A, B, C and E. Eating oat grass can help improve your diet and overall health with very little effort.
Purchase your oat grass from a health food retailer. Many health food stores sell squares of live oat grass that you can grow at home and harvest fresh every day. Keep the grass in a sunny spot on your counter, and water it daily to encourage new growth.
Cut a small handful of blades from your grass with a sharp pair of scissors. Trim the grass close to the roots, but don't pull up on the grass too hard, or you will loosen the roots and keep your grass from re-growing.
Place the grass blades in the juicer, and place a glass under the downspout on your juicer. Turn the juicer on, and push the grass down with the plunger to get all of the juice from the blades. The juicer will crush the blades and extract a potent green juice that will be extruded into your glass.
Drink the oat grass juice slowly, ingesting only a small amount per day until your body gets used to it. A few tablespoons is plenty to begin with, and you can increase the amount slowly until your intake is approximately a quarter of a cup per day. If you notice any nausea, slow down how quickly you ingest the juice.
Mix your oat grass juice with another fruit juice of your choice if you don't enjoy the taste. Any fruit juice is fine, although strong juices such as pineapple and orange juice will help mask the flavor of the oat grass.
