To help you out, I’ve listed my favorite healthy party food recipes on this page. As always my recipes are vegetarian and sugar free. And most of these party foods are also vegan and […]

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 […]

Recipe vegan cranberry smoothie bowl

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.

Vegan rhubarb recipes

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 […]

Vegan grilled zucchini salad

You can do so many things with courgette (zucchini)! You can make courgette spaghetti (courgetti), courgette roses and you can even use it as a very healthy pizza base (check the video recipe here).

Lunch in Maastricht: Bijzonder

This week I’m sharing my favorite spots in Maastricht with you and today I’d like to tell you about my favorite lunch spot: Bijzonder. Bijzonder means special and that’s exactly what I think this restaurant is. The menu is special, but the story of owner Dimitra is also special. Whilst traveling in Asia, Dimitra decided […]

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. Purists might not like it, but I love experimenting with healthy food so I’m a big fan! This dish is gluten free, vegetarian and […]

My favorite Sushi Recipes

Today I made Rainbow Sushi! I made it the way I normally also make my sushi, but I used coloured soy sheets. These sheets are gluten free and vegan, and so were my rainbow sushi rolls. For myself I usually fill them with avocado, cucumber, grated carrot, mushrooms or mango. And for my boyfriend I […]

An apple a day, keeps the doctor away! I do seriously eat an apple every day. And a banana, a kiwi and often some forest fruit as well. I know, I really like fruit. The good thing about apples is that you can easily take them with you and that you can vary endlessly with […]

Vegan leek walnut spread

A while back I was in Antwerp in Belgium and I had a gluten free wrap with vegan leek walnut pesto at ‘Eten vol Leven‘. It tasted really good and since it’s so difficult to find a healthy spread in the supermarket I decided to try to make it myself. As always, I want my […]

Do you think that ice cream doesn’t fit in a healthy lifestyle? Then you haven’t heard about banana ice cream or ‘nice cream’ yet! Nice cream is fat free, sugar free, gluten free and dairy free. It almost sounds to good to be true, I know. But check the recipe here and try for yourself! You can […]

New Recipe: Sushi Bowl

You might have seen several sushi recipes on my site already (like my famous sushi pie) and this sushi bowl is my latest addition. I love it that sushi recipes are easy to make and easy to adjust to your own taste. I made my sushi bowl vegan, but of course you could add fish […]

Avocado Bun

I love avocado’s! So when I saw the first avocado burgers appear on Instagram I knew I had to make one! I thought it would be quite difficult to make but it’s actually very easy. Of course this avocado bun is gluten free and vegan, it’s also super healthy since you’ll already get some vegetables […]

Healthy pumpkin spice bites

My American friends might have some Pumpkin spices leftover from their Thanksgiving baking projects, and my Dutch readers probably have some ‘koek en speculaas kruiden’ for their December recipes. Don’t leave them standing in your kitchen cabinet! You can use them to make these healthy pumpkin spice bars! These bars, or actually squares in this […]

4 Ingredient peanut butter brownies

Healthy 4 ingredient peanut butter brownies! They’re vegan and gluten free. No sugar, butter or oil needed for this simple but delicious recipe. I absolutely love peanut butter.

Vegan Pumpkin Soup

Every autumn I make a big pan of pumpkin soup. I simply put it in serving size containers and freeze them. This way I can always have a healthy, heartwarming meal even if I’m busy. This skinny version is suitable for vegans, since I’ve left out the cream. I think the pumpkin itself already makes […]

Healthy Snickers Balls

I love making healthy (and vegan) versions of unhealthy food. After making healthified and vegan Ferrero Rocher, it was time to make these healthy Snickers bites. These Snickers Balls are not only vegan, but also gluten free, raw and sugar free. And what might be the best thing about them is that you only need […]

Tropical Breakfast

I never skip breakfast because I always make something really tasty! If you’re short on time, I recommend making this overnight chia pudding. This pudding is made of chia seeds, which are low in calorie but high in fiber, antioxidants and protein. All you have to do in the morning is take it out of the fridge […]

New Travel Blog: Oslo

Last month I was on a citytrip to Oslo, the relatively small capital of Norway. Oslo is great for a weekend getaway in the summer. The city center is compact, the palace is centrally located and there are many musea to flee to when it’s cold or rainy. And of course: you can have a nice […]

Grilled Peach Salad

This grilled peach salad is perfect for summer! I love using fruit in my dinner dishes in summer, they add something sweet and refreshing. This salad is vegan and gluten free. For one portion I used 2 hands of wild spinach, 1 peach, pecan nuts and 1 cubed sweet potato. I shortly fried the sweet potato […]

Easy hummus recipe

I love hummus! It’s easy to make and very healthy. I could eat it all day long; on a sandwich with avocado for lunch, on a pita falafel for dinner, or on crackers when friends come over for a drink. Pictured above is my basic hummus recipe. Put you can also vary with it. Try […]
