Q/ Can eating clean help me age more gracefully? A/ As my grandmother used to say, “Couldn’t hurt!” Many bodily processes, such as detoxification by the liver and numerous markers of aging, are diet-dependent. Your ability to fight oxidative damage depends on dietary antioxidants. Vitamins essential for optimal functioning in old age like B12 and D can be found in whole foods like eggs and fatty fish. Many cases of insulin resistance – the single marker most predictive of degenerative conditions of aging, such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity – can be prevented, treated or reversed by diet! Is there a particular diet conducive to aging well? Yes. And it can be summed up in three words: Eat. Real. Food. Food your great-great-great grandmother would’ve recognized as food. Food that will…

the dutch art of doing nothing & the norwegian love for nature

First, there was hygge, the Danish concept of mindful, comfortable conviviality – think warm fires, fuzzy slippers and overall contentment. Now, two similar concepts, from the Dutch and the Norwegians, respectively, are gaining traction: niksen and friluftsliv. The Dutch art of niksen is the mindful practice of doing nothing… with intention. To truly do nothing but experience your own existence is deceptively difficult, but, once mastered, the benefits are impressive. Studies link meditation practices like niksen to a greater ability to let go of negative self-thought, enhanced cognitive ability and more attentiveness. Olga Mecking, author of best seller Niksen: Embracing the Dutch Art of Doing Nothing, tells CE: “We don’t have to guide our thoughts any certain way; they just have to run free, and that’s usually when our best ideas…

countryside wellness with marika blossfeldt

What is the story behind Polli Talu? As a little girl, we visited an older couple in Sweden who lived in a small farmhouse surrounded by forest. There, I picked a carrot straight from the earth, rinsed off the soil and bit right in. It was the sweetest, most delicious carrot I’d ever had. I can still remember the taste today. I believe it was this experience that instilled in me the dream to live in the countryside and own a farm someday. How can subsistence agriculture contribute to a healthier and more wholesome diet? Any kind of gardening or small-scale farming will contribute to a healthier and more wholesome diet. You can control what goes into your food. You can choose to avoid questionable pesticides and fertilizers. You put your love…
