Really Good Juice

From our Fall 2019 print catalog…

“This juice is exactly as it sounds, and so much like an experience here at Esalen...it's all the things and will have you feeling balanced, grounded and vital.” 

This is exactly what the title promises: really good juice! Prep some in advance — kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator, it will keep for three days — and you’ll have a burst of flavor and energy waiting for you when you need it. It’s a delicious, revitalizing blend of earthiness (beets and kale) and brightness (ginger and lemons) balanced by the apple sweetness.

You’re consuming a lot of the produce here, so go organic if you can and wash everything well before juicing. You’ll have lots of fruit and veggie scraps left over, but don’t throw them away! Use the lemon peels to flavor a baked good, or to make a natural cleanser for the kitchen; just steep them in some white vinegar for a week or two, and spritz away. The pulp that’s left over in the juicer can go into your next batch of veggie broth, or use it to supercharge your compost bin. 

Ingredients

1 large beet (red or yellow, your choice!)

3 medium carrots

6 leaves lacinato kale

8 stalks celery

1/2 bunch of flat-leaf parsley

4 apples (we like Fuji, but it’s juicers’ choice — use your favorite)

3-inch knob of fresh ginger root (more if you like the heat!)

2 lemons

Instructions

  1. Prep your ingredients: Wash everything thoroughly under cold running water, or soak everything in an organic veggie wash. Trim off bruised or damaged parts of the produce, peel the lemons, and cut everything into chunks that will fit into your juicer.
  2. Juice! Alternate between greens and non-greens, and do the ginger and lemon last. 
  3. Depending on how you prefer your juice, strain the juice through a fine mesh strainer to get out any remaining bits of pulp.
  4. Drink immediately, or store in the fridge for up to three days. Give refrigerated juice a good shake before drinking.

“Remembering to be as self compassionate as I can and praying to the divine that we're all a part of.” 
–Aaron

“Prayer, reading, meditation, walking.”
–Karen
“Erratically — which is an ongoing stream of practice to find peace.”
–Charles
“Try on a daily basis to be kind to myself and to realize that making mistakes is a part of the human condition. Learning from our mistakes is a journey. But it starts with compassion and caring. First for oneself.”
–Steve

“Physically: aerobic exercise, volleyball, ice hockey, cycling, sailing. Emotionally: unfortunately I have to work to ‘not care’ about people or situations which may end painfully. Along the lines of ‘attachment is the source of suffering’, so best to avoid it or limit its scope. Sad though because it could also be the source of great joy. Is it worth the risk?“
–Rainer

“It's time for my heart to be nurtured on one level yet contained on another. To go easy on me and to allow my feelings to be validated, not judged harshly. On the other hand, to let the heart rule with equanimity and not lead the mind and body around like a master.”
–Suzanne

“I spend time thinking of everything I am grateful for, and I try to develop my ability to express compassion for myself and others without reservation. I take time to do the things I need to do to keep myself healthy and happy. This includes taking experiential workshops, fostering relationships, and participating within groups which have a similar interest to become a more compassionate and fulfilled being.“
–Peter

“Self-forgiveness for my own judgments. And oh yeah, coming to Esalen.”
–David B.

“Hmm, this is a tough one! I guess I take care of my heart through fostering relationships with people I feel connected to. Spending quality time with them (whether we're on the phone, through messages/letters, on Zoom, or in-person). Being there for them, listening to them, sharing what's going on with me, my struggles and my successes... like we do in the Esalen weekly Friends of Esalen Zoom sessions!”
–Lori

“I remind myself in many ways of the fact that " Love is all there is!" LOVE is the prize and this one precious life is the stage we get to learn our lessons. I get out into nature, hike, camp, river kayak, fly fish, garden, I create, I dance (not enough!), and I remain grateful for each day, each breath, each moment. Being in the moment, awake, and remembering the gift of life and my feeling of gratitude for all of creation.”
–Steven
“My physical heart by limiting stress and eating a heart-healthy diet. My emotional heart by staying in love with the world and by knowing that all disappointment and loss will pass.“
–David Z.


Today, September 29, is World Heart Day. Strike up a conversation with your own heart and as you feel comfortable, encourage others to do the same. As part of our own transformations and self-care, we sometimes ask for others to illuminate and enliven our hearts or speak our love language.

What if we could do this for ourselves too, even if just for today… or to start a heart practice, forever?
