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). Together with a cool group of Fitgirlcode fitgirls & ambassadors we shared an amazing day full of good food, model coaching, pampering – all after a good night’s sleep at the…

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,…

Alpro Coconut Breakfast Bowl

If you’re looking for a tasty breakfast, try Alpro Coconut with your favourite muesli or home made superfoods granola. I prefer to make my own drinks – including almond milk – but sometimes you just want a quick and no hustle breakfast. Alpro Coconut is 100% plant-based, doesn’t contain any added sugars, soy or lactose. One…

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…

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…

Spicy Ginger Carrot Apple Juice

One of my all time favourites – especially in the morning because the ginger really wakes you up. Use a big chunk of ginger to make it nice and spicy! Ginger is good for many things… 8 healing benefits of ginger Haven’t been feeling hungry? Eat fresh ginger just before lunch to stoke a dull appetite…

Inspiration // Jamie Magazine #25

The Dutch version of Jamie Magazine is celebrating their 25th edition this month! I rarely buy magazines because I prefer cooking books, but for Jamie Magazine (as well as Donna Hay magazine) I make an exception. Why? The gorgeous photography, the lay out and the recipes – all healthy and easy to make. The spread about…

Breakfast // Vegan Chia Oatmeal Pudding

The summer in Holland is heating up and the hot mornings are asking for fresh and cold breakfasts. No more hot oatmeals for me – chia pudding and overnight oats are the way to go. Why not combine the two? This chia oatmeal pudding is a perfect combination of fulfilling and fresh. Keeps you going…

Review // The Dutch Weed Burger

A 100% vegan burger made out of sea weed. For healthy foodies, this sounds like heaven. But most people will be a bit suspicious: can this be delicious? The answer is yes. A big yes. The people of The Dutch Weed Burger are on a mission – and they made it a tasty one: “Our innovative burger goes beyond to…
