Fruit is candy

Hi all,

I really have a sweet tooth but I love fruit as well. I need to try and cut down on the candy and there are tons of excellent and lovely fruits out there especially now when summer is around the corner. And it just has to be that I love fruit. Fresh strawberries, blueberries, black berries, oranges, grapes, kiwi and apples fill my galley now after a trip to the market today. Fresh juices and smoothies will be the next few days detox with all these fruits filled with alkaline. Why alkaline fruits? Well they are very good anti cancer fruits for example. Buts that not all it does.

So what are acid forming foods good for?

Balance the pH in the body and when that’s balanced you notice for example:

  • Better digestion
  • Easier fat loss
  • better mental focus
  • better mood
  • less pain from inflammation related conditions

It is your body and only you decide whats goes into it so choose wisely and change some of the bad habits and replace it with good living well being.

You notice a more healthy active life and you make your body a favor.

You know what they say? An apple a day keeps the doctor away. 🙂 Its true!

 

 

Lovely May

May is here and that should mean spring and it has turned that way, we had a week with weird weather but now all seem to be gone and the sun is here. We are out sailing still and we have about 3 more weeks to sail before I need to start a new job in Amsterdam. That is going to be pretty exiting. today was one of those days with hardly no wind, sun high up and felt warm in the face, finally May is here. 🙂

Kings Day

Today its Kings Day in the Netherlands and all over its Orange. we take it easy with the boat and its the first time we are not in Amsterdam celebrating and its no dingy weather as it is cold and windy. This is how Amsterdam looks on Kings day 🙂

Koningsdag or King’s Day is a national holiday in the Kingdom og Netherlands. Celebrated on 27 April (26 April if the 27th is a Sunday), the date marks the birth of King Willem-Alexander.

 

Up until 2013, when Queen Beatrix abdicated and was succeeded by her son Willem-Alexander, the holiday was known as Koninginnedag or Queen’s Day and was celebrated on 30 April.

The holiday was initially observed on 31 August 1885 as Prinsessedag or Princess’s Day, the fifth birthday of Princess Wilhelmina, heir to the Dutch throne. On her accession in November 1890 the holiday acquired the name Koninginnedag, first celebrated on 31 August 1891. In September 1948, Wilhelmina’s daughter Juliana ascended to the throne and the holiday was moved to Queen Juliana’s birthday, 30 April. The holiday was celebrated on this date from 1949.

Juliana’s daughter, Beatrix, retained the celebration on 30 April after she ascended the throne in 1980, though her birthday was on 31 January. Beatrix altered her mother’s custom of receiving a floral parade at Soestdijk Palace, in Baarn instead choosing to visit different Dutch towns each year and join in the festivities with her children.

A normal Wednesday

This is just a normal Wednesday to me. On the waterways again. 🙂

 

What is going on?

Its no secret in today’s society that there are people that work on a daily basis with controlling the weather. the government in US has had HAARP for years and that’s scary stuff. I posted not long ago a post about CLOUDS and for years I have been thinking that they do not look the same as they done before. They look fake some times and just does not make sense with how it suppose to be. I cannot explain it but there is something strange going on. If you know more than I do about the weather please give me some comments so we all can learn whats going on.

Its end of April and its snowing, sunshine, hale and storms back and forward for days. A few days ago we went to our friends camping and took a stroll with the dogs and it was beautiful and okay weather when passing the horses and looking at the flowers blooming, now I have no clue what has happened?

Tulips

Yesterday we made a trip to our friends camping and on the way we stopped to look at the tulip fields as we realized we never seen them since we came here, now we have and the colors was just amazing. I love flowers but  as live aboard is not always the optional to have a vase of lovely tulips on the table.

 

 

Its getting closer

Whats getting closer? SUMMER!! yes that’s right baby, we are not alone out there anymore, there are other weird( read passionate) people that like to freeze their butts off and we like it, welcome summer, you getting closer 🙂

Landcape

The Dutch landscape is flat, flat and again flat. I get amazed every time I go through these tiny canals in the middle of the fields, and this early morning gliding through the flat landscape and only us and the cows awake.
