QUESTION: On Page 98 of ER4YBT you state that "Wheat is a mixed factor in the Type A diet." My question is...what about "wheatgrass? May Type A's consume this and if so how much a day i.e., 1-3 teaspoons in concentrated form dissolved in water or juice. Thank you for taking the time to help us all!!!
ANSWER: The sprouting of wheat into wheat grass destroys the lectin that is problematic in wheat. Sprouting also beneficially changes the nutrient profile of this grain, resulting in a nutrient-dense, enzyme-rich superfood. Because of these factors, I consider wheat grass to be an excellent addition to the diet for all blood types. As far as an amount, use your own judgement. Because of the concentrated nature of this food, a little goes a long way, so if you have not enjoyed wheat grass juice before, start with a smaller amount.
