What I Eat in A Day on a Boat


Greetings from Lake Saimaa! I'm #livingmylife so just a quick post today ☺I thought I would share with you what I eat in a day on a boat trip. One of my most read post has been What I eat in a day so this is a new version of that. 

Ok, I have to be honest here, eating healthy on a boat trip isn't the easiest option. Overall it never is the easiest choice if you want to eat healthy when you travel. But it is definitely worth it! When you are travelling by boat you need to plan ahead everything what you eat. Lucky for us I am used to plan everything in our life ☺✊ 

Traditional finnish food in the summer time in the camp fire places consist of sausages, steaks, bacon, grilled chicken, corn etc and those food items are not optimal choices if you want to reduce the amount of meat you eat (as I am now currently doing). However, I refuse to eat "traditionally" so I came up with different alternatives. More limitations cause the fact that I'm gluten free and don' t use dairy products so it is quite interesting..

Below are pictures of some foods which I have eaten: 


There are always a lot of fruits on our boat.

We had a hotel breakfast while we were in Savonlinna.

Sparkling water to get some Magnesium.

Mushroom,onion and chicken wok.

My favourite tea: Mate.

I've also eaten


Salads
Tuna sandwiches (gluten free bread)
Oat porridge for breakfast
Fried eggs
Nuts
Dates and cherries
Fruits: avocados, kiwis, bananas, apples
Strawberries
Blueberries (from the forest)
Blackcurrants
Peas
Grilled zucchini, onions and potatoes
Chicken woks
Grilled Perch (my husband is a fisherman)
Cookies + ice cream (life is a balance, right?)

That's about it. Simple but mostly healthy food.


Right now I have lessen the amount of coffee I drink. In fact on a boat I don't drink coffee at all. This has made me calmer, less agitated and I have slept better. If you are interested in trying to lessen the amount of coffee you drink, read more here.

All the best,

I Quit Drinking Coffee and it Changed My Life

The U.S.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says about 80 percent of U.S. adults take some form of caffeine every day. Accordingly, coffee is one of the most commonly used ingredients in the world. But caffeine does so much more than just keeping you awake.It’s a central nervous system stimulant that affects your body in numerous ways. So, let's talk about this and why drinking coffee might not be good for for you. While there has been numerous studies about the benefits of coffee, such as it increases alertness , lowers the risk of depression and reduces the risk of brain diseases , it has also negative effects on sleep and anxiety and it can cause headaches, panic attacks, adrenal fatigue, loss of energy, it can deprive minerals and vitamins from your body (read more on here ) As I mentioned before( here ), I quit drinking coffee last spring.

Why Are Cola Drinks So Addictive?

Did you know that in Argentina people drink the most soft drinks in the world? Their annual consumption is 155 liters per capita.  Not far behind is number two, the USA with 154 liters per capita. Americans are one of the largest consumers of the soda drinks in the world because of their modern lifestyle and high incomes. As it is very common to drink colas or other soft drinks but I have heard many people saying that they cannot stop drinking them. I started to wonder what is it that makes drinking Coca-Cola so addictive? Is it the caffeine, sugar or the artificial sweeteners? Besides what's the harm in drinking Coca-Cola? Below I will examine these three issues. Caffeine content The caffeine content in a 330ml serving of regular (sugar) Coca-Cola is about 32 mg. Compared to a a mug of coffee which contains 100 mg of caffeine that is a bit less. According to the Coca-Cola company the caffeine in their drinks is not addictive. However, if you are really sensitive to caffein

5 Effective Weight Loss Drinks

When it comes to losing weight, there is a lot of different kinds of detox packages and weight loss drinks available. However, I would not recommend using these products because they only offer short term benefits if any benefits at all. Instead I encourage to use a weight loss method which is sustainable. Usually this is acquiring healthy eating and exercising habits for life. You can achieve this by following my online nutrition programmes . Surely different starter kits, such as detox kits and ready to eat soup diets may come in handy but eventually when you have lost some weight, you should opt for methods which offer permanent results. Therefore, in this post I will share with you 5 effective weight loss drink recipes. I would like to remind you that drinking these drinks are not your only diet.  On the contrary, these are recommended beside your healthy meals and these healthy drinks could replace your other sugary sodas and juices..Besides they are also healthy and delicio

How to Stay Young and Healthy

The other day I watched a really interesting BBC document about how to stay young and more specifically how to prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease. As you get older your brains begin to shrink. As a result of this your cognitive skills diminish. How to prevent this? The key is to use your brains on a daily basis. More specifically scientists have discovered that learning a new language has the most efficient way to prevent dementia because learning will increase the size of your brain. According to these scientists other important ways to affect the size of your brain were reading exercising in general learning a new skill, such as playing guitar studying In the document researches investigated whether regular walks or ping poll plays had an effect on the brain tissue. The test groups walked or played ping poll for 2 hours per week. The results revealed that both test groups gained positive effects on their brain tissue because of their increased exercise. Mo

Viimeinen hormonimyrsky: imetyksen lopettaminen

  Olen imett√§nyt l√§hes vuoden ja nyt t√§m√§ tie on tullut p√§√§t√∂kseen. Imett√§minen her√§tt√§√§ paljon tunteita ja vaikka olenkin ollut onnellinen siit√§, ett√§ olen pystynyt tarjoamaan molemmille lapsilleni parasta ravintoa, ei se ole aina sujunut ongelmitta. Usein pohdin, ett√§ pulloruokinnassa olisin p√§√§ssyt "helpommalla". Kuitenkin molempien kanssa jatkoin imetyst√§ sitke√§sti ja n√§in j√§lkik√§teen ajatellen onneksi niin tein ūüíó Ehk√§p√§ t√§m√§n vuoksi imetyksen lopettaminen kuopuksen kohdalla ei ollutkaan niin helppoa. Viimeiset imetyskerrat sijoittuivat rauhallisiin aamuhetkiin joten sen lopettaminen minulle olikin haikeaa. Miksi? Ehk√§ se oli se l√§heisyys ja tunne siit√§, ett√§ se on sitten niin lopullista. Nautin, kun sain pit√§√§ vauvan viel√§ hetken aikaa rauhallisena vieress√§. Lopulta tulikin p√§iv√§, jolloin tytt√∂ her√§si mieheni kanssa enk√§ en√§√§ imett√§nytk√§√§n. Eilisen kerta olikin ollut tiet√§m√§tt√§ni viimeinen kerta. Mit√§ kehossani sitten tapahtui, kun imetys loppui? Pari p√§iv√§√§ lopettamise
