Detox Life

Green eggs, ham and about my ”mancave”

As you might have noticed I get a lot of my inspiration here in France.

Coming to this place which is filled with memorabilia from all the places we´ve lived in.
Books, pictures, paintings and china together with it´s beautiful surroundings makes creative marks in me that last till the next time I come back.

The food I use today in Stockholm I´ve used here for years. Everything is bought locally and is mostly organic. If not picked from the garden.

Also coming down here means time to rest, eat well, do lots of yoga and sleep.

My mother usually presents me with one or two objects each time I´m here from my past.

Books and reading, putting words together like therapy for me. I keep different dairies of words, photographs and plants.

This time around she gave me my old book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.
Dr.Seuss along with Alice in Wonderland and Marilyn Monroe are my favourite quoters.

Although I´ve mustard thru most of the Vedas, Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali Yoga sutras. All filled with amazing descriptions of the mind, the body and the soul.
I still love the easy quirky children’s books more. Quotes like ”today you are you that´s truer than true there´s none alive who is your than you” are brilliant.
As we all know a child mind is still uncoloured by society and often more openminded.

Green Eggs and Ham made me think of how it´s to serve and get people to see the possibilities with plant raw foods.
No one wanted to drink something green 7 years ago. Now it´s everywhere.
But sometimes the reaction can be:
Kombucha what the fuck is that?
Dry pizza for 24 h?
I hate plants!
Why eat flowers and drink birch sap?Why make nut yogurts and banana nice creams?

Because it´s good for you? Well not only that. It´s a magnificent way to prepare food. We actually use really old metods of how to preserve the greens and fruits in raw food.

When I made the psychedelic glass the first time it was kind of a smoothie mix going for a fail that turned into a win.
When shit went crazy in the glass I thought that´s pretty. I love it.

I thought if Jimmy Hendricks was a health drink he would be just that glass of taste and colour. Also I never felt full drinking just a smoothie and thought eating just chiapudding was a drag.
Layering healthy trips like this is all around us and it´s a beautiful way to eat what´s also good for you.

The book is about how this little dude is trying to make Sam eat green eggs and ham. Sam doesn´t want to because it looks different and is wierd.

I overheard famous Swedish chef looking at one of the glasses I made saying it´s just mushy stuff in a wine glass. Which is true if you see it that way. So I´ll give him that, it´s not for everyone.
In the end though Sam eats his greens and loves it.

I eat everything.
I´m quite the mix of both the detox and the retox. I´ve tried the hardcore eating nothing. The eating not this and that.
I´ve done to much yoga and Í´ve lost all focus and space.
The only way that makes my life work is ”balance is key”.
You might find me on a yoga mat, sipping a juice or eating something planty.
And you might find me messing about with my friends at my favourite bad behaving places.
Or you might not find me at all. Sometimes I just turn of reflect and go into my “man cave” mode. A necessary need in my fast moving forward world.
Then my friends sms and ask are you alive Jo?

My mom always said taste everythingat least once and I´m happy I did. In each country we´ve lived I´ve tried and learnt about flavours. Experience is the best teacher.

So I add to what she said by saying this, play with your food to open your mind.
