Cake and other goodies.

I just started a new job and I wanted us all in the group that had started in the same time to feel that appreciated after the first week of training. And as I love to bake I made a Red Velvet cake for the first time ever and it was a success. My kitchen on the other hand was not a success as it looked like i killed someone in there. My god what a mess.

This cake was amazing and this weekend I went to the baking store for more supplies and today its lazy Sunday so I though i would make some cup cakes just because its fun.

Its Fresh

Summer always brings those wonderful exotic fruits and veggies and on the market I can go for hours picking out fresh fruit. The fruit detox for this week contains passion fruit, apples, grapes, strawberries and mango. Throw in a few macadamia, walnuts and apricots kernels (alternative cancer treatment and contains Vitimine B17) and you have a real organic detox that will make your body go WHIIIII of happiness.

Boat season

It has started and they are everywhere. 25 degrees Celsius today and everyone that has a boat was out today, the whole weekend will be the same. Here are a mix of boats you see in the Netherlands. There are thousands more and the marinas are full at night and empty in the daytime.

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!

 

 

Sports

I always liked sports, different kind of sports. I am grown up with football\soccer around the house so I find that interesting to look at, a favorite team I really do not have but if have to choose it has the be Swedish Stockholm team Hammarby tat lays closest to my heart. My father would kill me otherwise! 🙂

So liking sports and like competition I found that the marina had a bowling hall with 4 lanes and I booked one for me and husband. We bet that the looser would make the dinner tonight so I am laying here on the couch while waiting for my dinner to be served. Yes, that’s right, I won. 🙂

 

Things on sea I see

Clouds

When out on the water I often see all these different clouds. This was just the other day and this is pictures 360 around me. Lovely clouds and such a different sky. It was a crazy mix.

 

Our life source

Water. Wet. cold, warm, liquid, frozen, steam. These are the many ways we can see and feel water. Its important that we know that we should pay great respect for the water. great oceans is out there with their currents, tides and waves.

Water is also full of life and it has memories. Just think about what all the rivers and lakes could tell us if they could speak. Our bodies are filled with up to 50-65% water so be gentle to yourself and how you use your language, your body might not like it.

Take a look at Dr Masaru Emotos video and see his experiment with water. It is pretty awesome.You might start thinking in another way then before.

I have lived my last 7 years connected to the water and I can feel its power by the unspoken stories it tells me at night while rocking me to sleep.

Here is Europe we have relative clean water but I suggest that you always filter your water anyway as now days normal drink water has a lot of added toxic like fluoride and bacteria’s. We got sponsored from a Company called Clearly Filtered with one of their pitcher that filters away 90% of the fluoride and harmful corcinogens and contaminants that can be found in your tap water. Thanks a lot for this. We now have the cleanest water on the block. 🙂

Nautical stuff

We sailed for a get together with our Swedish friends and their boat in Enkhuizen. Its a lovely town located in the lake of Ijsselmeer and from the 1300. We been here many times but for our friends it was the first. We found a market with bargain prices on ropes. Everyone that has a boat ropes are extremely expensive.We bought some and now we have new ropes on the boat as our was old and hard, so hard they were barely bendable anymore. We are happy sailors now.

Tomorrow we continue sailing together with our friends in the lake exploring new adventures.

See you around

Breakfast time

What breakfast do you do on board?  I love my coffee and husband his tea.

Fresh oranges so we can press juice is a must on board for us.
