Parsley is easily grown by yourself. It grows without any special care or attention. If you have a garden, simply throw some seed down and Parsley will magically grow.
Look for dark green leaves. The darker the leaves, the more chlorophyll there is.
Due to the fact that Parsley is a green juice, you will find it beneficial to have no more than about ¼ of your juice consisting of green juice.
Parsley is a natural diuretic also. Parsley should never be drunk by itself as it is simply too powerful.
Parsley is very concentrated and so I try not use to any more than 1 ounce in every 8 ounce glass.
Parsley is high in oxalic acid and should be avoided by those who suffer from or are at risk for kidney stones, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis and those whose stomach is easily irritated. Read my notes on oxalic acid for more information.
Since parsley is high in oxalic acid, you should also avoid combining parsley with other vegetables that are high in calcium, such as broccoli. Oxalic acid combines with calcium to create an indigestible compound. You should also avoid eating calcium rich food immediately after eating or juicing parsley or any food high in oxalic acid. This includes foods like tofu.
Most people have a certain vegetable that they have always liked. For me, it has always been parsley. Ever since a child, this is one vegetable that I could never get enough of. As a child, we used to grow parsley on the windowsill, unfortunately, I ate it all before the parsley could fully mature!

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.
