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.

Wellness

Wellness is not how thin you are or how many hours you spent on the gym or how many carrots you ate for lunch last week. wellness is feeling good inside yourself and knowing who you are. If you don’t know who you are you will only be a lost soul at sea. If your soul is shining so are you on the outside and this is notice by many people around you and this is like rings on the water without you even knowing it. By our mind and consciousness we effect others around us by having a soul filled with wellness. And with wellness comes happiness. You catch my drift here? 🙂

I notice myself being grumpy sometimes for no reason at all, like the atmosphere we live in effect us most negatively once in a while. This effects of course my surrounding and all of a sudden the moment that just been so good for all just died. Most unnecessary and this is why I write this post, To make you remember who you are and how you feel and how that effects everything you do and and around you. To reach a goal it is important to not loose the ground on reality as the world we live in today is rough and not at all what you think it is. Open your eyes and hearts and you notice that the world will opens up to you.

Lots of love to you all.

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!

 

 

Baking while travel

I love my baking and while travel on the canals it is perfect to make a cake that’s ready when you come into port. yesterday I made a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for the coffee together with our friends. It was a success 🙂 I also tried another frosting with some green color but I think that one got yo sweet so i used the lovely cream cheese frosting instead.

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.
