The Dutch Secret

With so much lycra around these days, stylish looking racing bikes, runners, power joggers and Organic supermarkets popping up like ‘paddenstoelen’ (toadstools) you’d think the whole country is on a health kick.  Continue reading “Going DUTCH -the healthy way”

That lil’ Pill..

Bitter PillInstead of stressing about wether the next thing you’re about to put into your mouth is free of poison/chemicals/’Monsanto voodoo’ and if it’s organic, sugar-free, lean and healthy; it might be an idea to first of all think about the smallest, tiniest daily female consumption…

Seriously; we read about one healthscare after the other. Yet the tiniest thing that possibily has the largest effect on our body and mind (in comparison to anything else you take on a daily base) seems to be totally ignored.

Running to walking sticks

10412933633_3f3b3fc0d3_zA lot of my colleagues run. I keep seeing running statuses of some friends on facebook. Some of them do marathons. My students are picking up on the reoccurring hype too. The municipality of my city is targeting the youth nowadays to join in with the (highly sponsored) city-run.

I should be happy. It’s great how people grow enthusiastic in any field of sports. And I want my students to exercise, live healthy.

But I’m not sure about running.  I’ve learnt running isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and I have toned down on it. I love running but not how it tends to turn me into a ‘Corpse Bride’ and how it will make me use a walking stick in 20 years or so.

So I’m not going to stimulate my students to jog or run. Not without informing and advising them thoroughly.

A bit like what I trying to do here now..

Please do run. But be informed and keep your balance, baby! ; )  Continue reading “Running to walking sticks”

The ‘after dinner dip’; Too much gluten?

We Europeans are starting to catch up with the U.S.’ anti-gluten hype; I’m noticing more and more people are interested. Over here, the gluten-free diet has been associated with health freaks (and of course people with gluten allergy), but word is spreading the gluten-free diet is the way to energetic health and weight loss (making it more popular). But is it, really?
