Of you've 2 hours and 19 minutes to spare to get calm, get to your senses, in touch with the gourmet & artisan side (read: hipster) of yourself, be sure to watch this 8 Part IWF documentary about a Heather Skep Apiary in Central Europe, Northern Lower Saxony. Documentary shot at Georg Klindworth Apiary. This documentary is one of the most relaxing things I've seen in a long while. It's so basic and earthy, so elementary. I never would have guessed keeping bees would require such skill, knowledge, patience and insight. I really enjoyed every minute of this documentary, twice.
Een mooi portret van een van mijn favoriete Nederlandse Start-ups: Gidsy.com. Helaas inmiddels overgenomen door GetYourGuide, vind ik het zonde van zo'n mooi merk en een mooie, veelbelovende start-up in deze tijden. Met de huidige trend van de Collaborative Economy en de Maker Movement die eveneens meer tractie krijgt, doen we steeds meer samen. Samen, onderling, als community. Zonder tussenkomt van grote bedrijven en gigantische marges. Gewoon eerlijk. En authentiek. Gidsy.com had zeker een plek in dat ecosysteem en het stemde me dan ook een beetje triest dat het ter ziele was gegaan. Een tijd terug spotte ik wel een andere interessante: Withlocals.com. Zeker een bezoekje waard!
I thought we were doing quite well. Energy wise. I guess I was wrong.
/ht to my friend Jeroen for sharing this.
Meet Joe Cross. "The sort of bloke who likes to tackle his demons head-on". In this particular case, Joe's demon was fat. Body fat. He was, as he said, 'fat, sick and nearly dead'. So he went to America to tackle his dumptruck demon head-on with nothing but juice. And he inspired other to do the same with seemingly great results.
I've been juicing myself for a few years though. Not 60 consecutive days, but I do a juice diet from time to time, where I make fresh juices for 3 days in order to detox. I learned tricks of the trade from Jason 'The Juicemaster' Vale. The thing with all these programs though, is the down right monetization of them. I don't blame them, cash in by all means, but this always makes me super suspicious. It's my problem with Mindfulness too. There's a weird contradiction between Mindfulness and being the go-to guy in it, selling books and audiotapes on the subject for top dollar.
Not sure where I was going there. Ehm, right. Just remember, if you're not paying for something, you're the product.
Checkout the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead website. There seem to be a lot of recipes on there, might come in handy if you own a juicer and a blender.
And here's another resource regarding juicing and weight loss and overall health.
