Irritable Bermuda Syndrome, ha

Note to self...we're amending the use of Bermuda as a supplement and we'll utilize it in other ways rather than pureeing and putting it into the smoothies ...the fiber is too insoluble and we can do infusions (tea), juice it , roast the roots (which we haven't tried yet for substitute coffee) etc.  But not blend in smoothies.  Definately felt a good boost from the juice portion but the fiber was mildly irritating to our digestive tracts...which is something we never have with smoothies.  So, we tweak :)

I still want to try some wheat grass and any other proven grasses that are good for juicing, as a supplement.  It's so easy to grow enough to add some ooomph into our diets.  I wonder if I'll have to find a way to get one of those grass juicers, though.  Casual google survey shows most regular juicers aren't up to all that fiber.  Lets's see.  It's on the back burner for now.  We've begun adding in more plantago/plantain leaves to the smoothies.
