Toast with spicy tomato sauce and eggs

I’m hoping to inspire you with my website and social media, but sometimes I don’t feel like creating a new recipe and I look around online for healthy recipes. When I’m looking for inspiration for new dishes I often use Instagram or Pinterest. During one of my search sessions I found Food Love and Happiness. […]

Happy World Chocolate Day

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. When you think of fast food you probably think of ‘unhealthy’ and ‘meat/fish’, but I’m proving you that you […]

Are you celebrating the 4th of July this year? This American independence day is always a great party. I loved it when I lived in New York and I could watch the fireworks from the East River. But no matter where you live, you can throw your own 4th of July party with these red, […]

New recipe: popped quinoa chocolate

You might have made quinoa before, but you probably never used it in a combination with chocolate! I love experimenting with quinoa, I’ve made pink quinoa and quinoa risotto for example. One time I made popped quinoa for breakfast and I decided that if you can make chocolate with popped rice, you can also make it […]

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! To make these healthy waffles that you can have for lunch or dinner, all you need is a waffle iron and falafel dough. Some supermarkets sell ready-to-use falafel dough, […]

Summer Dinner: strawberry salad

It’s really warm in the Netherlands this week. Some people might find it dificult to think of something to make for dinner with this weather.

Healthy hotspots in Utrecht

Utrecht is the most centrally located city in the Netherlands, but not the most innovative one if it comes to food. Many restaurants still serve the traditional menu they’ve had for years. Luckily there are a few gems in this city. On this page are my recommendations if you want to have a healthy lunch or dinner […]

Smoothie bowls are the perfect solution for when you’re not a morning person. Having a healthy breakfast is very important as you’ll need energy to focus and get things done.

New Food Mash Up: Sushi Pizza

I like mash ups for songs, but I also like mash ups for food! I’ve made a breakfast pizza before, and a sushi pie. And now it’s time for: sushi pizza! I’ve made two sushi pizza recipes; one with salmon for my boyfriend and a vegetarian sushi pizza for myself. Not only do I have […]

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. But (as you probably know) those aren’t your healthiest options. Take-out and delivery often hardly contain any vegetables, and microwave meals often contain a lot of […]

Testing: Japanese candy

You know you’re a foodie when one of your favorite things to do when in another country is going to the supermarket. I always bring home some typical products of the country I’ve been to. Often I do this so I can create recipes from the country at home (I’ve made Pad Thai after Thailand […]

Courgetti Recipes

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 […]

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.

Yeah it’s rhubarb season again! Rhubarb is officially a vegetable, but you can prepare it as a fruit. Did you know that in ancient China rhubarb was used as a medicine to cleanse the body, as a laxative and to reduce fever. Harvesting of the rhubarb usually begins at the end of april and may […]

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.
