Run Swim Run

I know I am very special about running in the heat. I love it. I love when the sweat is running from me and I can feel that my skin is doing what it can to cool me down. But before I go for a run in the heat I am very aware that I have to drink a lot before I go. If I run less than 20 km I usually don´t have water with me. If you are the type to dehydrate, feel dizzy or uncomftable in the heat, don´t do it. Run early morning or in the evening. The weather has been just great in this weak and perhaps that is why I have intensified my activity...

Super Power Drink

There are many different kinds of superfoods. Superfoods are off course good, but if you really want to, and I assume you do, there is a good golden rule. Eat nonprocessed food, then you are a long step on the way to live healthy. The most healthy things you can eat are the things that you can go outside an collect in the nature. Well we are talking about edible things ;o). At this time a year I daily eat blackberries, raspberries, different currants, basil, rosemary, apples, pears, cherries, elderberries, aronia, strawberries, bananas, broccoli, tomatoes, lemon thyme, sage, gooseberries, carrots and rucola. All this is from my own garden except the bananas, broccoli and apples this year. If I do not...

Close To Plants 2

Hi there lovely one. Good to have you back for the Plantstories again… In “Close To Plants 1” I told you about the raspberries, the currants and the gooseberries. This time I will tell you about all the rest from my blueberries to my beloved pear tree. If a kitchen has only a few herbs in its possession, basil will likely be one of them. Its fragrant essence combines well with rosemary and thyme in meat dishes, fish, vegetables, cheese, soup and eggs, and is one of the main ingredients in pesto, along with pine nuts and parmesan cheese. I have my basil inside my Greenhouse. Basil is considered one of the healthiest herbs. It’s best when fresh, exuding a sweet, earthy aroma that...

Close To Plants 1

Plants is just amazing organisms. Quiet still standing (most of them) creatures that are so important for our lives. We call it The Blue Planet, but we should rather call it The Green Planet. Maybe then we would respect them a little more and know that without them……..there would be nothing. Below a little poem about the process from the plants that we are so depending on and since I am a schoolteacher in Biology, well then it is inevitably ;O) When it comes to food you can just feel how good plants are for you. One of my favorite doings is to go around in my garden and talk to my plants…….Ok ok well not talking, something like feeling...

Keep Your Power As You Age

To stay energized, be active and well-rested The further we get from the boundless energy of childhood, the quicker we seem to run out of steam. But getting older doesn’t automatically sideline you from being active. Usually, our energy declines because of normal changes. Both genes and environment lead to alterations in cells that cause aging muscles to lose mass and strength and to become less flexible. As a result, strenuous activities become more tiring. These cellular changes also limit the heart muscle’s pumping ability, reducing the flow of oxygen-rich blood that provides energy to the cells. Though no one stays as energetic as they were in childhood, you can delay the decline in energy and stay active as you...
