Ginger is a bumpy root. The ends are normally dry, but that's okay. If you cut off the ends, you get to the juicy part. Only buy as much Ginger as you need. If the Ginger Root in the store is too big, simply break off the amount that you need.
I only use about 1 cm of Ginger Root at a time. Its taste is powerful.
Ginger Root does have a strong taste, but it's one of my favorites! I really enjoy Ginger Root juice, especially when combined with the standard blend apple juice and carrot juice.

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.

If you want to learn pure hatha yoga, now you can by following Jesse on a series of hatha yoga routines.
