New favorite in Amsterdam: Vegabond

I’ve added a new favorite to my list of Amsterdam hotspots: Vegabond. Vegabond is a vegan lunchroom meets vegan supermarket, making it the perfect stop for all vegans in town. It’s located in the city center around the corner from the Anne Frank museum. Their lunches are delicious (vegan cheese!) and the mini supermarket is […]

King’s Day Recipes

On April 27 the people in The Netherlands celebrate ‘Koningsdag’ or King’s Day in English. A big party where everyone dresses up in orange (the national color) or red, white and blue, the colors of the flag. Especially for King’s Day I made four red, white and blue recipes. They can also be used for […]

Worldwide Giveaway at Freshii

Freshii is on a mission to make healthy food affordable and convenient. It started with a shop in Toronto, Canada and less than 10 years later it has branches in more than 75 cities in 15 countries.  I had my first Freshii experience in February 2016.

Hotspots in Krakow, Poland

Although Warsaw is the capital city of Poland, I heard so many great things about Krakow that I was really curious about this city. And it is indeed a great city for a city trip! The old town is compact, making it possible to see all the highlights in a (long) weekend. And Krakow is […]


Thailand is a very popular holiday destination, and if you’ve ever been there you understand why. The country is beautiful, the people are friendly, prices are low and the food is great. I’ve been to Bangkok, Chiang Mai area and the Phuket area. I’ve avoided the big touristy areas as much as possible. And as […]

Amsterdam’s best kept secret

Feel-Food in Amsterdam West might be Amsterdam’s best kept secret. Although the locals have found it for their healthy deliveries, not many  know that you can also eat-in at this lovely healthy restaurant. They’ve got juices, smoothies and organic soda’s. And for dinner they have organic hamburgers, but also veggie and even vegan burgers. Besides that […]

New Burger in Amsterdam

There’s a new burger in town! A couple of weeks ago Artisani Burgers opened their doors at the Kinkerstraat. Located in my neighborhood, Amsterdam West, I really wanted to try it out. It’s a small but nice restaurant where they make all burgers on a charcoal grill. My boyfriend tried the Artisani Burger with a […]

New Travel Blog: Istanbul

Istanbul is a great destination for a city trip. Especially if you live in Europe, Istanbul is perfect. It’s closeby but a totally different world.

New Travel Blog: Lisbon

Lisbon is such a romantic city with its winding, cobblestoned alleys where you can stroll around during the day and where, in the evening, a good meal and a fado singer are never far away. If you live in Europe, Lisbon is a great destination for a weekend get-away. Its size is manageable and especially in […]

I just came back from a trip to Beijing with my personal food photographer (a.k.a. my boyfriend). We had a great time in Beijing. There’s some great food available, if you can make yourself understood because the majority of the people don’t speak English. For me it only added to the adventurous feel of being […]

Today I had brunch at Sir Hummus, a really nice Hummus restaurant in Amsterdam. They are located in the nice ‘de Pijp’ area. I enjoyed it so much, that I’ve added them to my list of healthy restaurants in Amsterdam straight away! Sir Hummus is run by 3 Israeli’s, so you know that their hummus […]
