The local dairy farmer delivering the milk, dodging the new Toyotas and motobikes as he goes! The traditional really is pushed up against the new here in Nicaragua.

Does anyone know what the name of this tree and fruit are? It’s extraordinary the way the fruit grows out of the trunk.  I’m wondering whether or not I should eat it. #eat200foods

Kids surf lesson today. Nicaragua has some amazing beaches only accessible by 4x4. Before the political unrest this beach was a Mecca for surfers. Today we had it too ourselves!

One of the amazing things about being on the Pacific side of central America at this time of year are the electric storms This lightning was happening just behind huge statue of Jesus, which gave it a very fire and brimstone feel. #lightening

Getting my greens and colours in. Kale and dragon fruit smoothie. Lots of phytonutrients!

My little workers preparing the cacao beans to be blended with coconut milk for their ‘hot chocolate’ or as Jago points out it will have to be cold chocolate as it’s very hot here!

Having vision is a powerful thing. Walt Disney had a vision of Disneyland and turned a hot orange grove into the world’s most famous theme park. Today I went to @treecasa_resort where the owner’s vision shines through. They have taken a secluded jungle hillside and turned it into a beautiful retreat centre with 30+ individual accommodations, including tree houses, yoga platforms and breathtaking views. I will be looking to run a retreat here for health and movement  entrepreneurs very soon.

Sourcing local food back in Canada was a big priority for Lucy and me.  Over the years we got to know farmers and only brought meat from people we knew and trusted. 
I even went as far as getting my hunting and firearms licences so I could hunt and catch my own deer.  Now we have moved to Nicaragua we are shifting our eating patterns and trying to eat more seafood.  Today we  decided to go as “sea to table” as possible, dinner tonight was a Spanish Mackerel caught by Lucy and prepared by me.  Yummy…(and that’s another 1 on the 200 List for those doing the challenge). #Eat200Foods #AroundTheGlobe #SeaToTable #farmtotabledinner #kidslearning #digitalnomadfamily  #thetravelnova #healthyfood #healthy #healthylifestyle #food #fitness #healthyeating #foodie #instafood #cleaneating #health #eatclean

One of the big take homes from spending time with @drterrywahls was this:  Our eating habits have become so narrow and automated that we simply do not eat enough variety in food to get a good nutrient profile.  For example the average American eats just 30 different foods a year.  She suggested that we should try and consume about 200 different foods a year to get a good nutrient profile and then there would be no need for supplements which may have dubious value anyway. 
So, I want to know who is up for the challenge of eating 200 foods in a year, spices count, but derivations of the same food don't.  An example for my meat eating friends: T-Bone Steak, New York Steak, Ribs are all beef. However organ meats would be considered different from muscle meat. 
For the vegetarians pasta, bread, etc are all wheat. 
Just put someone’s name in the comments to show them the challenge.

We left a lot of things behind when we left Canada to travel the world.  Here’s a pic of me and Elise, our dog.  We couldn’t take her with us, but we gave her to a friend and neighbour who simply loves dogs. I think she’s actually going to have life with him then with us.  Here’s a question for fellow travellers: What did you leave behind?

One thing that is great to have when travelling Central America is a good 4x4.
We’ve got a early 90s Mitsubishi that the kids are calling “Tiger”.
I want to call it Pepe the Mule like in the 80s move “Romancing the Stone” but no one in my
family has seen it!
What is your favourite 4x4?

We decided not to homeschool our kids whilst we are in Nicaragua. But I am going to pass on as much practical knowledge as possible. Here we’re learning how to tie quick release knots. #tyingknots #knotoftheday #intothewild #forestschool #forestschools #wildtime #naturestreasures #outdoorlearning #outdoorfun  #natureandnourish #beachschool #lovetheocean  #childhoodunplugged #wildandfreechildren #kidslearning #kidslearningvideo
The volcano ‘Conception’ on the island of Ometepe, Nicaragua. What an amazing place. Apparently it’s still active! #ometepe #ecolodge #pagetfamilytravels #digitalnomad #travel #entrepreneur #laptoplifestyle #fiction #workfromanywhere #locationindependent
