Granola isn’t always healthy

All those granola breakfast bowls you see on social media might look very healthy, but most granolas contain sugar and sweeteners. Double check the package before you buy your granola to see how healthy it really is. Skip the ones with sugar, honey or syrup. Also the more healthy sounding sweeteners are still sugars. Your […]

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.

New cookbook: Vegan for Friends

I love getting inspiration from cookbooks. Sometimes it can be annoying that there are many dishes in a cookbook that aren’t my taste. Some books have many recipes with meat for example (I’m a vegetarian), or have a long list of ingredients or ingredients that are very difficult to find. All of those things don’t […]

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 […]

For […]
