Chicago's Indoor Garden
A vegetarian paradise thriving with freshly sprouted beans and wheatgrass for a vegan Thanksgiving feast is right in Chicago's Indoor Garden. Try wheatgrass juice for appetizers. Wheatgrass is composed of young sweet green blades of grass--rich in nutritional value with enzymes, proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Chicago's Indoor Garden allows green sprouting grass blades to grow from chickpeas, beans, soy, wheat, and other grains to produce balanced nutrients and antioxidants which are blended into juice full of chlorophyll to be consumed for balanced nutrition.
Natural chlorophyll from green grass sprouting hastens tissue healing and promotes red blood formation, in addition to inhibiting unfriendly bacteria. Wheatgrass juice is a rich source of fresh chlorophyll.
At Chicago's Indoor Garden, organic wheatgrass is nurtered carefully and lovingly on rich, aerated worm-composted soil. Within 7-10 days, these wheat sprouts grow into 6-7 inch green grass blades os sweet juicy wheatgrass.
Juicing the wheatgrass, freshy cut, renders a nonpareil emerald "green drink" which can be an ideal component for a healthy natural program, when used in conjunction with a well-balanced high-fibre nutritional diet.
Wheatgrass juice is gluten-free. For more information about this and other vegan organic foods freshly grown at Chicago's Indoor Garden, call 773-772-5858.
