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 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…

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…

Breakfast // Detox Bowl

When you start you day with a good, healthy and filling breakfast – chances are that you will stay on track for the rest of the day. You’ll eat healthier and feel better. I really love my green smoothies and oatmeal breakfasts, but sometimes I’m looking for something else, a healthy and tasty variation. After…

Plog // Love for Organic Fruit + Veggies

My first plog is a fact. A plog is a ‘photolog’, a visual orientated blog. It contains lot’s of photos and less text. My first one is an ode to ‘De Krat‘ a Dutch food service that brings organic local veggies & fruit right to your doorstep, every (other) Saturday. Hope you love my plog!…

Detox // 10 reasons why you should do a juice detox

If there would be just 1 detox that I could recommend to you, it would be the 7 day juice detox by Jason Vale (iPhone & Android app also available). There are tons of benefits and reasons why you should take on a juice detox yourself. I’ve completed the juice detox again last week, as you…

Smoothie // Pineapple + Avocado + Superfoods

Good morning sunshines! Did you know that starting everyday with a green smoothie makes you feel awesome? No? Well, now you do. The past week I’ve been juice detoxing (with the 7 lbs in 7 days app by Jason Vale, which I recommend to all of you!) and I feel like a super human. Really. My…

Juicy // Detoxing Aloe Vera Orange Juice

A fresh pressed juice doesn’t need to be that complicated. You really don’t need all those different veggies and superfoods in your juice everyday. Sometimes I like to keep things simple. Organic fresh oranges and some home grown freshly harvested Aloe Vera gel, for example.

Juicy // Spinach + Kale + Carrot

The great thing about a new year is the opportunity to start over. A new beginning. A whole new year to become whoever you want to be: from a healthy person full of energy and passion – to a better partner or friend. All is possible. January is the month to kickstart things. I’ll be…

Thai // Raw Spicy Papaya Salad

One of my favorite Thai dishes is the Spicy Green Papaya Salad. And the Thai love it spicy. Really spicy. I’ve learned that the hard way. This salad (funny that I actually captured it) was the spiciest salad I ever ate! They make it on every streetcorner in these cute little portable kitchens. Back in…

Breakfast // Chia Overnight Oatmeal

Last week, the magazine Beau Monde asked me if they can use one of my recipes (the fresh fruity oatmeal recipe) in their special superfoods edition. They needed a different photo, and this is the result :). Slightly different than how I normally style it – I really like the ‘raw’ wooden table in the…

Review // De Krat

As you might know – I am a big fan of locally grown organic food. I love to shop at organic local markets. Next to shopping at these markets, there are a few other – very smart – options. Like ‘De Krat‘ (‘krat’ means vegetable crate) – a Dutch company that brings good food in a wooden vegetable…
