Living healthy and try to be more structured

Wintertime is coming in Holland and that means its getting f***ing cold and wet. We prefer to go running in the morning and that means getting up at about six and start running half an hour later. We run for an hour, take a shower and get ready for work. I try to hit the sack at 10 in the evening because I really need my 8 hours of sleep. When not... I am as grumpy as hell! So I am really trying to get this structured and because I am an evening person this is not that easy. 


Michelle and I are also focusing on our nutrition. Paul and Ans from Anyones Running introduced us to the Paleo Diet. The Paleo Diet is a way of eating in the modern age that best mimics diets of our hunter-gatherer ancestors - combinations of lean meats, seafood, vegetables, fruits, and nuts. By eating the foods that we are genetically adapted to eat, followers of the Paleo Diet are naturally lean, have acne-free skin, improved athletic performance, and are experiencing relief from numerous metabolic-related and autoimmune diseases. Well... that sounds nice!

So last week we bought ourselves a juicer and we make our fresh fruit and vegetable juices every day. This way we get everything we need as in vitamines, minerals and fibres. And it tasts good too! In the morning we make our smoothie with yoghurt, muesli and lots of fruit and in the afternoon we make a great vegetable shake. In the evening we eat vegetables, nuts, herbs and whatever we feel like and what's good for us. And guess what? We have more energy and feel a lot better these days. 


Coming soon, some nice juicer recipes to get you energized!
