General

Alfalfa is an Arabic word which means Mother of all Foods. The reason for this is because alfalfa plants are known to have roots over 30 feet long. Alfalfa plants need such long roots in the desert in order to get enough water to survive.

The result of such long root systems is a plant that is very effective at gathering nutrients for its own survival.

One of the benefits of sprouts is that you can grow them yourself. Not only does this save you money, but when sprouts are grown in your home you also get really fresh juice that contains no pesticides.

You can obtain organic seeds from your local health food store.

You may find it beneficial to wrap your sprouts in a lettuce leaf before juicing to help maximize the juice obtained from the sprouts.

To learn how to grow sprouts, please review the sprouting page.

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.
