Green and red pesto pasta

Don't we all love some pasta's every now & then? I really really do..I love to mix them up, keep it simple (as the real Italians) and enjoy the lovely comfort food. Pasta's are mostly known as unhealthy and refined grains, which are mostly true..But if you want to make it a bit healthier choose wisely and go for the organic, fresh and different kinds of grain pasta's such as spelt, quinoa even mungbean pasta...I still need to find a place where I can get mine mungbean if you have any idea, please let me know:-)

Mediterranean tempeh burger

I don't know what it is with tempeh. But I just love it! It's such an easy food to eat with just anything and there is so much what you can do with it. Sunday dinner was made out of tempeh too;-)

Hot served coconut banana's

I'm such a huge fan of Instagram. It's such a great way to connect with people from all over the world and share passions, ideas & thoughts. There is so much more to explore for a true foodie like me. I'm connecting & following with some great vegan chef, home chefs, kitchen chefs...all kinds of chefs..but only one thing in common: a love for food, healthy & crueltyfree cooking.

What kind of energy do you take in?

Be aware of what you put into your body. What kind of food you eat, how you eat your food, but also what kind of emotions and feelings you let trough to get into your body. Do you have any idea what kind of effect food, emotions & thoughts have on us? On our mind, on our bodies? Your body and mind don't only need to process what you eat but also how you feel and what you think.

Speltbulgur with grilled asparagus and a tahini sauce

Since I know how to cook my asparagus I'm a big big fan...There is so much what you can do with asparagus: cook them in an Asian stew, grill them, make eggrolls with them of just put them in a wrap...and there is still so much more..

Puffed sweet potato boats


2013 has been all about puffed sweet potatoes;-) I've just found the puffed version out very recently (I guess about 2 or 3 months ago) and they are seriously one of my favourites ever. I love them because you can truly taste their natural sweetness when you prepare them in an oven. You can also make a variety of different sweet potato dishes....Oh men...there is so much more..

What are you grateful for?

In daily life there is a lot to handle. We work a job, have a family, live a live. Most people on earth are most of the time sad, unhappy, stressed and not living their lifes to the fullest. We blame our job, family, friends or just anything in life and we don not seek within ourselfs.

Butter spelt spaghetti with nuts

I've recently found out that garlic is giving my skin a bit of a problem. Well if I eat it too much...for the Ayurvedic lifestylers within here: it aggravates my Pitta.Basically I feel so bummed that I found it out, as one of my all time favourite ingredients is garlic. So I need to be careful with my garlic intake and use it moderately.

Oven Pumpkin, grilled asparagus, nutty couscous and a vegan herb butter

Ohhhhhh I love my veggies and especially the plain ones, simply grilled or baked with a bit of salt & pepper and sometimes with a good oil or butter. If you eat veggies like this, you can totally feel them entering your body and give your body a boost. least I feel this way about my simply baked veggies.

Summer sunflowerseeds and sundried tomatoes tapenade

As an almost vegan I'm trying to quit as much animal products as I can. I do like my cheese once a while, but where I used to eat a lot more cheese when I just became a vegetarian, I need to give up my cheese as an almost vegan. And to be honest, I don't really mind. There is so much more you can make, buy and eat. All you need to be is a bit more creative.

Superfood amaranth porridge

I love my porridges. I used to be a sandwich lover...which I still am every now and then, but I really switched in to a cooked porridge lover in the mornings. They are my fuel for the day, the give me energy and I can truly feel them nourishing my body.

Moroccan pumpkin and chickpeas with couscous and potatoes

I love this stew! It's a great stew to share with others, to make a big pot so you can invite anyone over and to expend the table of food with bread, grilled veggies, dips and a true feast!
