I recently created this solar plexus energy juice inspired by two separate events in my life, both surrounded by the SUN.
The first event was a recent family trip to breathtaking Big Sur where the coastal landscape was adorned with beautiful fields of yellow flowers. They say that yellow stands for freshness, happiness, energy, clarity, optimism, enlightenment, loyalty and joy. This is how you feel when you visit Big Sur. It’s truly heaven on earth.
The second event is my upcoming trip to Jai Dev‘s Life-Force [Kundalini Yoga & Ayurveda] Immersion where we’ll be closing each class with the “Long Time Sun” mantra ( an old Irish blessing that was popularized by The Incredible String Band and adopted by Yogi Bhajan)
May the long time sun shine upon you,
all love surround you,
and the pure light within you,
guide your way on! ☀
We’ll be reciting this mantra many times over the course of the next five days. I am excited nervous and thrilled at the same time about this program!
I’ll provide a full review of the Life-Force Immersion upon my return ( within the next 2 weeks). I heard that the food is SUPERB!!
In the meantime, enjoy my Long Time Sun juice. Rich in vitamin C, antioxidants and a great anti-inflammatory. It will also balance your solar plexus ( represented by the color yellow and ingredients like turmeric). This is your center of drive, energy and passion.
- 4 large organic carrots ( no need to peel if it's organic)
- 1 large organic orange
- 1/2 small organic lemon
- 2 large organic cucumbers
- 2-inch fresh turmeric
- Process all the ingredients in a juicer. Enjoy it!
- Fresh juice is best enjoyed immediately. If you have a masticating juicer, you can store the juice in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
