Almond Oatmeal with Grilled Pear & Walnuts

I love waking up with a warm bowl of oatmeal in the morning. Whether slowly cooked and creamy or soaked overnight – oats provide your body with many benefits. Eating oatmeal can lower your cholesterol, especially your LDL, or ‘bad’ cholesterol. If you’ve been diagnosed with high cholesterol, consider adding oatmeal to your daily menu. Oatmeal is…

Healthy French Toast with Banana & Kiwi

Who doesn’t love french toast? Too bad that it isn’t really healthy, unless you replace the unhealthy ingredients with healthy ones. In this healthy version I used unsweetened almond milk, no sugar, coconut oil and good artisan multi grain spelt bread. Perfect breakfast! What do you need for one portion? 2 thick slices of multi grain bread…

Chia Oatmeal Pudding with Blueberries & Maple Syrup

I just can’t get enough of this breakfast: chia oatmeal pudding. I’ve been experimenting with it for some days now and this is by far my favourite yet. The best part is that you can actually make this the night before, taking it with you to work and enjoying an ice cold fresh breakfast without getting…

Quark with Summer Coulis & Grapefruit

This super easy and quick breakfast is perfect for people that love to work out or just need a little bit of extra energy in the morning. It’s full of protein and vitamins! Choose organic quark, this is much creamier and tastier. Use a frozen summer fruit mix to make the coulis: it’s cheaper and tastes almost…

Teff Porridge with Pistachio & Pomegranate

Ever heard of Teff? Teff is a fine grain – about the size of a poppy seed – that comes in a variety of colors, from white and red to dark brown. Teff grows predominantly in Ethiopia and Eritrea. The grain has a very mild, nutty flavor, and it packs a serious nutritional punch. Teff has an excellent balance of…

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…

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…

Breakfast // Vegan Passion Bowl

Breakfast. It doesn’t have to be complicated. With a little twist to your ‘standard’ breakfast, you can make your mornings a lot tastier. Just choose something new and fresh – like passion fruit. Somehow I don’t buy this tiny tasty fruit bomb very often. But I added a passion fruit to my quick fix breakfast and I…

Breakfast // Organic Greek Yoghurt + Superfoods

As you might have seen on my personal Instagram account; I visited the Food Hall of the Marks & Spencer in my hometown The Hague for the first time yesterday. Their new store just opened in February and I can tell you that I’ll be shopping at this store more often. They have lot’s of…

Breakfast // Acai Smoothie Bowl

A couple of weeks ago I discovered the ‘smoothie breakfast bowl’ for the first time through the Instagram account of blogger Luise from Green Kitchen Stories (this photo, to be precise). It’s really simple and I was surprised that I’ve never thought of this before: make your smoothie slightly thicker and put it in a…
