Sometimes on the road or in time tight circumstance when I don't have time to cook greens or get in the right amount of vegies does anyone know if it's ok on the GTD to get in some of the green powders that are out there as long as they are compliant with one's type?

I am hoping that it is a good way to get these in when circumstances warrant.

I think Harmonia is probably the best for us, but if you want another alternative, this is a good quality, and I've used it at times:

Greener Grasses
Check for compliant ingredients for your specific type.

Thanks Victoria.  I pulled this from their site:

Whole leaf: Wheat Grass Barley Grass (naturally occurring fiber)
Pure Juices: Alfalfa Leaf Kamut® Grass Barely Grass Oat Grass


My question is:  I cannot eat wheat or barley and oat is a black dot.  Would the grasses of these foods fall into the same categories?

On the other hand, the Barley Juice must be ok because it is in the Harmonia product... Lola?

And what is Chlorella, which is the 1st big ingredient in Harmonia?

Well this site basically says this Chlorella is not that great of a thing afterall:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chlorella

Comments on this would be appreciated from those 'in the know!'

The grasses are simply vegetables, and don't rate the same as their seeds, which are classified as grains.

Chlorella is nearly indigestible in its' natural state, but for the purposes we are using it, the cells are cracked.  This is true of all the better brands sold in the natural foods stores.  It is a very nutritious product.  Just don't be ordering it from some unknown company on the internet.

Thank you  Victoria... very informative!  And thrilling because now I can continue to get good greens even when traveling and unable to cook!
