A good apple for juicing purposes is hard and firm. Avoid those apples that are bruised.
Some people will say you can juice the seeds of the apple and others say you should not due to the fact that apple seeds contain some cyanide. Personally, I do not juice the seeds of apples.
As with all fruits and vegetables, it is best to buy organic apples. It's even better if you have an apple tree growing in your backyard!
As you probably already know, non–organic commercial apple growers will put wax on the apples. This is what makes the apples shine. It's for this reason that I prefer organic apples as I don't want to be juicing wax too!
If it is not possible to get non–waxed apples, then it is best to peel the apples.
When you do buy an apple, check it for worms. It's a fact of life... worms do like apples and there is nothing you can do about this. Chances of finding a worm are slim, but it has been known to happen.
As with many fruits and vegetables, the peel contains a lot of nutrition. If you are not able to juice the peel, then the Vitamin A content will be substantially reduced.

Have you been wanting to do hatha yoga (stretching) but have found it either too difficult or you are not that flexible? If yes, and even if no, watch Jesse do some pure hatha yoga routines.
flow yoga, each pose in pure or traditional hatha yoga is held for a few minutes. While holding the pose, you focus the mind on the stretch. When you focus the mind, that's when you find silence.
Jesse is not flexible — never has been and probably never will be flexible like others. But it doesn't matter. In pure hatha yoga, how flexible you are makes no difference. It's all about loving the pose and focussing the mind on the stretch.
If you want to learn pure hatha yoga, now you can by following Jesse on a series of hatha yoga routines.
