Do you recognize these stones when you see the photograph? The little pieces shown above are sea glass stones created in the sea. Due to the salt water, there are weathering processes that produce natural frosted glass all over the world. That is why you can find these stones on every beach, but the best times to look are during spring tides especially perigean and proxigean tides, and during the first low tide after a storm. And what if you never seen them before? Take a close watch at touristic places, because you can find a lot of jewellery that is made out of sea glass and there are also a lot of shops that sell the stones per piece. Or see it as a change to go to the beach this weekend. Maybe you can find a few while you take a long walk in the breezy wind of the sea.
I am crazy about inspiring new ideas to create a better and cleaner environment. And the concept from Sarah Wolf and Milena Glimbovski has got it all. They came up with the idea to design a supermarket where you can buy every product, but without the packaging. No more plastic bags and lots of trash. Instead of that, you will only buy as much as you need from every product and use your own pots to refill the products. So people will buy consciously again. I love this idea and luckily many more people. They needed 20,000 euro’s to materialize this concept and the Berliner company already did so within twenty-four hours with crowd funding. The first supermarket will be opened in Berlin this summer and if we may believe the founding girls, next ones will be opening soon after that in several countries.
My favorite day of the week is Monday. On this day I plan my schedule for the week including work and sports. And this month I added a new sport to my planning, namely running. I noticed that when I run, I need enough energy that keeps me going and a lot of proteins to build up the muscles. So I created the green omelette. An omelette made out of organic products that contain a lot of proteins and nutrition. The perfect meal to get you ready for every exercise!
– 4 Organic eggs
– Chopped zucchini
– Basil leaves
– 2 Gloves of Garlic
– Coconut oil
– Bio tomato ketchup
– Salt & Pepper to taste it
Chop the zucchini in thin slices and the garlic in little pieces. Get a large bowl for the eggs and break them carefully in it. Add the basil leaves and three tablespoons of bio ketchup to it. Mix it all together and put it aside.
Heat a pan with coconut oil and bake the zucchini together with the garlic for five minutes. Then add the egg mix on top of the zucchini and garlic and put a lid on the pain to boil it all down. It takes another five minutes to cook for the perfect omelette. Add some salt and pepper and your homemade omelette is finished!
Note: For a workout I suggest to eat it plain. Else you can put it on a speltbread or cracker.
Still looking for a place to go to for the holidays? I got the hotspot where you can find it all! It has the best summer weather, beaches and a relax atmosphere. I am talking about the Greek island Skopelos, situated in the western Aegean Sea. According to the legend, Skopelos was founded by Staphylos (Grape), the son of the god Dionysos and the princess Ariadne of Crete. And these days Skopelos is also known as the island where the film Mama Mia is been recorded.
But why this island instead of another island of Greece? Well, this mountainous isle in the north Aegean Sea is really unspoiled. Along the coast you can find beaches in every shape and form, from bays with mountain views to cliff-framed coves that can only be reached by boat. There are also a lot of walking trails through the olive groves, pine forests and orchards. And last but not least, the island is full of traditional villages and known for the best honey.
So if you want to have a calm vacation with lots of beautiful views, the best weather and lots of beaches. Choose Skopelos, it will be worth every penny you spend.
There is a new hotspot you can add to your list of must go’s! If you are living in Sweden or planning to go to Stockholm soon, please visit Drop Coffee to taste the best brewed coffee there is in town. This company makes each cup of coffee from its own roasters and the focus lies on traded coffee. According to their website they believe that if they pay the farmer a good price for the arduous work to produce the coffee, it will benefit him or her, their families, communities and the local environment. So with each cup you are drinking, you help will help others to build a sustainable life. Isn’t that inspiring to drink even more coffee? Well, back to the coffee bar itself. Drop coffee is located in one of the hippest areas of Stockholm and the moment you walk in you feel a relaxed atmosphere where you can either have one coffee or go for a lunch with some friends. I must say, the soup and sandwiches are also very tasteful! But be on time, especially on Sundays it is always a little crowdy. So to make sure you got a seat, go a little early.
