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.

I made healthy chocolate cookie dough cheesecakes especially for World Chocolate Day. These cheesecakes are vegan, gluten free, raw and sugar free.

Eat breakfast and win

I started this website to motivate and inspire people to take good care of themselves. One of the ways I’m taking good care of myself is by starting the day with a healthy breakfast. I always add at least 1 piece of fruit to my breakfast, but often it’s even more. This way I already […]

Vegan Fish and Chips

I’ve been wanting to make vegan fish and chips for quite a while now. As you might know I love making healthier and vegetarian versions of fast food, like my breakfast pizza or sweet potato burger.

Restaurant Atelier in Amsterdam

Have you already been to restaurant Atelier in Amsterdam? They opened two years ago but they just renewed their interior and their menu. I have to admit that when I first looked at the map I thought it was a bit far out. It’s located behind the Olympic Stadion. But I found out it’s less […]

Fawaffles: Falafel Waffles

I experimented in the kitchen once again! After making Tortizza (tortilla-pizza) and Courgetti (courgette spaghetti) I made ‘Fawaffles’ this time, a hybrid between falafel and waffles!

Recipe for when you don’t feel like cooking

Sometimes you just have had a busy day, you’re tired or your short on time. Those days it’s quite easy to buy a quick microwave meal, tv-dinner or take-out.

Courgetti (‘pasta’ made of courgettes) is such a great invention! A couple of months ago I’ve bought a spiralizer and I’m creating one healthy recipe after the other. Using courgette instead of pasta is such an easy way to make your dinner vegan, gluten free, low carb and super healthy! You’ve probably already figured out that […]

Vegetarian and vegan food in Tokyo

If you’re a pescetarian (you don’t eat meat but you do eat fish), you’ll have no problem eating well in Japan, as you can probably find more dishes containing fish than meat. But if you’re a vegetarian or vegan you might  need to search a bit harder. No need to worry, there are definitely vegetarian […]
