Freshness Test

The color and size of the gooseberries all depends on which variety is being looked at. European gooseberries tend to be larger, about the size of a small plum. North American gooseberries tend to be smaller and virtually perfectly round.

Gooseberries can vary in color from green, white, yellow and even shades of a reddish–pink.

Typically, the gooseberries drop to the ground naturally when overripe.

General

Gooseberry is a very good source of vitamin C. While not commonly found, this berry is worth mentioning for those that access to fresh gooseberries. Presently, not much information is readily available about gooseberry, but that could all change as more people become aware of its naturally high antioxidant capabilities.

I decided to add gooseberries to the juicing list because I can remember, as a child, eating gooseberries while growing up in the Pacific Northwest. Although I am no longer around gooseberries or have easy access to them, it's important and beneficial for us humans to get a variety of nutritional sources into our diet. Sometimes it is those fruits, vegetables or berries that don't have the prestige, glamor or fame that other foods have, that are in fact quite beneficial for us. Gooseberries are one such food, that if you have access to, should not be ignored.

Hatha Yoga

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.

Unlike 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.

Follow me on Facebook and watch my videos on YouTube.
