Many dogs like to eat grass..... I wouldn't worry about it unless your vet says otherwise.
Have her on leash on trails and move far enough away that she can't sniff people or jump on them. This is your temporary management plan until she has had enough trianing to walk past people. We do not want her to practice the behavior.
Your training for greetings will be to get a helper. Have your dog on leash. The helper approaches. Asks for a sit. Gives your dog a treat then walks away. In 4-10 seconds, the helper comes back, asks fr a sit, feeds a treat, walks away and repeats 25-30 times. Repeat with as many dif\ferent people as possible. IF your dog jumps up, the person should just hold still and wait for the sit to happen.
There are also walking-past people exercises you can do too....but start with the above and hten post back.
