My favorite hotspots in Tilburg

Tilburg is booming! More and more (healthy) lunchrooms and restaurants are opening up in the 6th biggest city of the Netherlands, making it a more appealing city to visit. It’s only 90 minutes by train from Amsterdam or Antwerp. And even though in the past Breda and Den Bosch were the cities in Brabant that […]

Where to eat in Rotterdam

Rotterdam is the second biggest city in the Netherlands and a major port city. Where Amsterdam has the feel of a small village, Rotterdam feels more like a big city.

An easy way to healthify your donuts is by making them savoury instead of sweet. No butter or sugar is needed for these sundried tomato donuts with basil.

Lunch in Maastricht: Bijzonder

Healthified naked cake for Easter

Easter is a very good reason to bake a cake! Especially when it’s a healthified vegan and gluten free naked cake! If you’re not vegan, I’d recommend my classic healthy carrot cake recipe. To be honest, I like that one better. But that one contains eggs, so I really wanted to create a version for […]

New recipe: quinoa risotto

I guess I’m in an ‘experimenting with quinoa fase’. Yesterday I shared my pink quinoa recipe, I’ve made popped quinoa for breakfast before, and now I’ve turned quinoa into a risotto.

Veggie restaurant in Eindhoven: Bij Albrecht

I discovered a new vegetarian restaurant in Eindhoven: Bij Albrecht. They’ve been open for 6 months now and are one of those restaurants that I really love.

New: Restaurant MOER in Amsterdam

Last month organic restaurant MOER has opened up at the old tire changing station at the end of the Overtoom.

MOER is open for […]

Greenwoods: English Tearoom in Amsterdam

Greenwoods is Amsterdams first English tearoom. It was founded in 1988 and it’s still my favorite spot for a real English cup of tea, lunch or scones. One of the reasons for that is that they have many vegetarian options, another reason is that almost all their products are home baked or made on the […]

Homegrown sprouts

I’m not always very good with plants, so I’m very excited that I’ve grown my own sprouts! Thanks to Bijt I’ve had my avocado with homegrown broccoli and basil sprouts today. They’ve got very easy starter kits, so all I had to do was add water on the first day and harvest them a couple of […]
