Basic needs - extreme happiness

Meet Aleksander Gamme. A Norwegian explorer who completed the world’s longest (and loneliest) ski trip, Gramme skied 1,404 miles across the South Pole armed only with audiobooks and a sled that weighed up to 385 lbs. The 86th day of the journey, Gramme stopped at a cache to stock up on supplies and found an unexpected surprise.

Gramme’s infectious happiness reminds us of a couple of things. One: Even the healthiest people (his diet on the trip consisted mostly of superfoods) love junk food. Two: In the quest to be healthy, it’s important to remember that food is not only a source of nutrients, but also a source of joy. Need convincing? Just watch this video.
