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…

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…

Detox // Juicing vs. Blending

Juicing or blending? Two different healthy ways of nourishing and detoxing your body. Both are really healthy and great options for a breakfast packed with good stuff. What do you prefer? Everybody has their personal favorite and reasons why. The main differences between the two: 

Detox // The 10 step beginners guide + 3 recipes

A new year full of opportunities. This might be: working out, following a meditation course or eating healthier. Whatever it is, start now! Before you know it, this year is over. Time flies.

Smoothie // Kaki Fruit + Cinnamon + Superfooods

Did you ever try kaki fruit (sharon fruit / persimmon)? It’s perfect for smoothies! Kaki fruits are sweet, and slightly tangy with a soft to occasionally fibrous texture – the taste reminds me of a combination between dates, papaya & mango. Sounds good eh? Try out this easy creamy smoothie…

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…

Review // Slow Juicer vs. Fast Juicer

I think I just met my new green love. The Hurom HF Slow Juicer. It’s my first ever slow juicer and I can tell you, it’s a big difference compared to my normal juicer. The juice I used to make with my ‘normal’ fast juicer – the Bosch MES3000 – produced much more vegetable pulp,…

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…

Smoothie // Lime + Avocado + Wheatgrass

This is absolutely my favorite smoothie/juice. I can’t really deside – it’s both. I juice some of my favorite vegetables and blend this with an avocado and some wheatgrass powder. The result is a creamy juice/smoothie, filled with good stuff and the taste is just perfect. The lime makes it fresh and using wheatgrass powder…
