will it work? I don't have my wheatgrass juicer anymore? Seems to have been lost in August in the big move along with the digital camera...hope they are happy together, where ever their love has taken them.

Wheatgrass in the Champion? will it work?
I don't know what you mean by "work". From my experience, it'll wrap itself neatly around the cutter and you'll get minimal juice. Plus, the Champion gets so hot IF there's any juice, it'll oxidize very quickly. Not your best option.

Have you ever tried juicing wheatgrass in the blender? Aleesha explains how here: http://aleeshasrawlife.blogspot.com/2008/02/wheatgrass-smoothie-with-vita-mix.html
The blender method works pretty well. It's blended, so it oxidizes pretty fast, but if you drink it right away you'll be fine. Also, a blender is much faster than a mortar and pestal.
You could also just chew your wheatgrass and spit out the pulp once all the flavor is gone. Chewing is good for digestion. It really gets things moving, if you know what I mean ;) . I often chew blades of grass instead of chewing gum. Chewing a sprig of fresh peppermint with a few wheatgrass blades reminds me the most of gum. Whenever I start noshing on grass my cat comes over and I give her some, too.
