Having problems with your kitty constantly getting into your wheat grass? Why not grow them their own? Just grow as you do for yourself but place theirs in a safe and accessible spot so they can nibble freely.
"In a given year, getting hit by lightning (1.29 people per million) is more likely than contracting E. Coli (1.1 people per million) from meat, poultry, shellfish, milk, eggs and produce combined. Since produce represents the smallest risk of these foods (41 outbreaks in 5 years) and since sprouts represent an even smaller risk than produce (12 in 40 years), the benefits of eating sprouts dramatically, statistically and historically outweigh the contamination risks."

Packed with vitamins A, C and folic acid, Pea Shoots are a delicious, nutritious modern slant on the classic British garden pea. Lyndel Costain, B.Sc.RD, award winning dietitian and author of Super Nutrients Handbook, says, Pea Shoots are a nutritious leaf with high levels of vitamin C and vitamin A. A 50g bag of these tasty greens offers more than half of the RDA for vitamin C, a quarter of the RDA for vitamin A and significant amounts of folic acid.
Pea Shoots, like most vegetables and fruit, have a low energy density or few calories per mouthful. Research carried out at Pennsylvania State University found that eating a large, mixed low fat salad as a starter meant that people reduced their calorie intake by 12% overall per meal, a saving of more than 100 calories . As part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, the nutrients found in pea shoots can help to maintain health and well being throughout life .
POPCORN! POPCORN! Who wants popcorn!
Such an interesting micro green that just like Mung Beans, likes to grow in the dark. When grown in the dark it is a very yellow grass that is tender and surprisingly sweet. Used mostly as a garnish, but you can chop up a little and add as a sweet little tidbit to your salads, soups or stir fries. Also makes for delicious popped corn treat.
