Give away: Arab Food Lovers Box

I’ve reached 7000 followers on Instagram! Reason for a party, and by party I mean a giveaway! To celebrate I’m giving away an Arab Food Lovers box to one of my Facebook fans! This box contains three middle eastern recipes and all the ingredients you need to make the tasty dishes. You’ll find the recipes […]

New recipe: Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh is a great dish for summer! This middle eastern dish is not only healthy; it’s also very easy to make ahead and take with you on a summer’s picnic! This dish is vegetarian and vegan, although you can add some feta cheese if you want. Check the recipe here. Are you on Bloglovin’? Follow […]

New Travel Blog: Vietnam

Vietnam is a very photogenic country. Or maybe my boyfriend is just a great photographer. Anyway, we really enjoyed our stay in Vietnam. We explored the north. We started in Hanoi, took a two day boat tour in Halong Bay and rented scooters in Sapa. You can read my travel tips and find out where […]

New Travel Blog: St Petersburg

It might be unusual, or original to say the least, to go on a city trip to St Petersburg in Russia. But I absolutely recommend it. It’s only a short flight from most European airports (less than 3 hours from Amsterdam for example) and now that the Russian Rouble has lowered in value, it’s very […]

Epigenetics and Longevity

  I had a very interesting workshop last week from Healthy Life Lab about epigenetics and longevity. Epigenetics is about how you can influence your genes and longevity is about how you can live long in good health. Both subjects were very interesting, so I would like to share a quick recap of this workshop with you. […]

New recipe: artichoke-tomato spread

During my vegan challenge I was looking for healthy spreads. I made hummus so often, that I wanted something else that was just as easy to make. And I’ve found it with this ‘artichoke meets sun dried tomatoes’ spread. With only 4 ingredients, this healthy spread is very easy to make. Check the recipe here.

Vegan zucchini pizzas

Last week I made healthy zucchini pizzas, this week I made them even healthier! And vegan! This version of the zucchini (courgette) pizzas has tomato sauce instead of red pesto and pine nuts instead of the mozzarella. Check the original recipe here, and just replace the ingredients mentioned above for these easy vegan zucchini mini […]

Bali James Breda

Restaurant Bali James in Breda serves authentic Indonesian food. Chef and owner Jimmy Lohamzah might look very young, but he’s been cooking Indonesian food at this restaurant since 2004. Although you can order regular dishes from their menu, I recommend the ‘rijsttafel’, this tasting menu offers all the best of the Indonesian cuisine. My favorites […]

New travel blog: New Zealand

New Zealand is without a doubt one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The only downside is that it’s so far away from pretty much every other country in the world that it will always take quite some time (and money) to get there.  On the other hand, that might be its charm […]

Zucchini pizzas

These zucchini (courgette) pizzas are a great healthy snack for a (dinner) party! They’re gluten free and low-carb. Besides, they’re super easy to make. If you don’t believe me, just click here for the video where I’m showing you how to make them in 15 seconds. Or click here for the recipe of these mini courgette […]
