Also needs to be frugal Using fresh greens is pretty much out since I don't have a high power blender, tried once with kale in my current blender and it was awful- had to chew it down. Was thinking of getting a powder but that seems like a waste since the greens are all dead, or is it still nutritionally sound? Is it cost effective? I noticed some brands include green tea and I have to stay away from caffeine, any brand recommendations? Next I thought about going with shots of wheat grass, would have to invest in a wheat grass juicer , my juicer says it can juice wheat grass but I read that the fibers are not safe to consume, something about them being sharp and can damage your stomach/gut. Also would have to buy seeds/trays/growing supplies since growing it myself seems to be the most cost effective. Anyone do this, any tips or recs? Please help my drink my greens on a budget!!!!
