Rutabaga ‘Tagliatelle’ with Radicchio & Grilled Pear

The oldskool veggie Rutabaga (swede) is one of those things that I keep staring at in the store. What the f… can I do with this? Well, you can make ‘pasta’ with it! Combine it with a bitter Radicchio salad and sweet grilled pear – lovely. What do you need for two portions? 1/2 Rutabaga handful…

Travel Stories // Hidden Hotel Paris

Paris, city of love. I’ve only met you once before, during a party weekend about 7 years ago. We didn’t really connect.  Here’s why. The road trip to Paris was long and rainy. With too much traffic. Hours and hours of traffic jams. It rained. All. The. Time. I slept over at a friend’s place… with 5…

Peanutbutter Banana Pancakes

Until a few weeks ago, pancakes didn’t really do it for me. An unhealthy mix of milk, sugar, butter, flower & a bunch of unhealthy toppings – no thanks. Michelle from the Facebook page Studentenvoer however inspired me to make healthy banana pancakes. Yes, they are as tasty as they look and trust me – it’s…

Workout Wear // Jogha

Last week, I was one of the lucky few that got picked to play model for a day for the new activewear brand Jogha (by Fitgirlcode Founder Aranka).

Beetroot Pear Thyme Juice

Beetroot juice is one of my favourite juices, next to the classic ginger-carrot-apple juice. Traditionally, people use beet juice to heal the skin, detoxify the liver, it would prevent tiredness and it may kill fungi, because it’s a strong antioxidant and has anti inflammatory properties. Besides all these benefits, the taste is really good too,…

When in Rome…

At the moment, I’m exploring the wonderful city of Rome. Together with my sister and parents, I’m visiting all the gorgeous ancient highlights. I’m also doing my best to find out where all the foodie hotspots are. Where to eat really healthy, where to find green smoothies, vegan food, gluten free menu options – you name…

The Perfect Post Work Out Salad

One and a half hour before my workouts, I try not to eat anything, maybe a banana or half a raw energy bar at most. My body simply does not agree with me if I eat a whole meal before a run, swim, crossfit session or hot yoga class. I get slower, nauseous and it even…

The Healthy Foodie Guide to Hamburg

In the first weekend of August, during the Cruise Days, I visited the city of Hamburg for the first time. Loved it. The harbour which is located in the centre of the city, the buzz around the cruise days, the contrast between the reeperban & winterhude, the bikes, the people and of course the tons of…

Blueberry Pina Colada Mocktail

As you might know, I love fresh juices & smoothies. A nice cocktail in the weekend is lovely from time to time – but alcohol is not really the best thing you can do to your body. The mocktail is the solution! It’s tasty, healthy, fancy looking and it won’t give you a headache the next…
