Lately, I’ve been on a health streak. I’ve never been able to keep that going for this long. The reason I manage to keep eating healthy is because I make every meal delicious. I’ve been experimenting with new recipes and “tickle my taste-buds” (anyone get the reference?) in order to keep this healthy lifestyle exciting.
One of the ingredients I am loving, at the moment, is Seamore I sea pasta. This pasta (made of just seaweed) is delicious, light and flavorful. You can use it in Asian or Mediterranean dishes, it always works. Fun fact: Seamore pasta is a great source of Iodine – something that isn’t easy to get in on a vegan diet.

There’s no other way to say it. I’m bored. I need something new in my life. Something that makes me feel warm and tingly inside. That feeling that you get when you know you’re going to do something with no clue how it will end. It’s the feeling you have when you’re traveling; every day when you wake up. Anything can happen.Read More »
I used to love peanut butter cups when I was living in New Orleans. Justin’s dark chocolate were my favorite vegan ones and the fact that they sold them at Starbucks on campus made my coffee fix better every time.
Peanut butter cups aren’t really a thing in the Netherlands so I decided to make my own. These are quick, simple, easy and only require 5 ingredients! You can always add some other ingredients; maca powder, other nut butter, sprinkles on top before you freeze them. Whatever you like.Read More »
These waffles are great for a weekend breakfast or brunch. They’re flavorful, healthy and easy to make.
A few days ago my friend Coco came over. She told me how she’s been reading “How Not To Die” and about turmeric. Apparently, turmeric (or otherwise known by it’s active compound curcumin) is a great spice to add to your food. Read More »
I love Christmas. People who know me, know this. I love the lights, the music and the ridiculous, yet delightful movies. I also like all the food. Christmas is a food-related holiday, if ever there were any. During December I take full advantage of the freedom to bake and cook Christmas recipes to share with friends, colleagues and family and to practice for Christmas.

This dish is something I’ve been thinking of for a while but I never got the chance to actually make it. And somehow, online, I wasn’t able to find anything that was really like my idea. So this Sunday, I finally tried out my own spin on chickpea scramble. A vegan alternative for scrambled eggs.
I had this dish for breakfast but it’s also great for lunch (or a lazy dinner). It’s healthy, chock full of protein and customizable to your personal preference. I hope you enjoy!Read More »
Anyone who knows me, knows I love London. It’s a love that’s existed from the very first time I went there with my parents. Since then I’ve visited London at least once a year, every year and I still love it when I get there. There’s always new things to discover, places that inspire me or people to meet. It is my dream to one day move somewhere just outside of London and be able to enjoy the city whenever I can. London truly is the only place I’ve ever felt at home.Considering my love for the city it’s crazy to think that I haven’t written a post about vegan food in London, yet. There’s just so much to mention! But, I’ve finally gotten to it. It’s a long one, but I just had to show you all the great places. I hope you enjoy, and let me know where you went or want to go in the future. Read More »
With the return of cold weather it’s nice to make more warming dinners. One dish that my mom used to make when I was younger was this broccoli mousse. It’s warming, creamy, filling and delicious. It also makes a great side dish for the holidays. So with that in mind I thought I’d share the recipe with you all. Read More »
The recipe below is one of my childhood favorites. Tortilla de patatas, or “Spanish omelet”, is a dish that’s perfect in all it’s simplicity.
Every once in a while my mom would make a big tortilla de patatas and I would just love it. It took me a while to realize I could veganize the recipe and I am so glad I did. Together with the aioli you have yourself a crowd-pleaser.
The aioli is a great condiment with other foods, too. It’s super easy and great for your next barbecue, fries- or nacho-night.

Just two days ago I came back from Disneyland Paris. I LOVED it.
After coming back I figured I should put up another “vegan favorites” blog for my vegan travel series. It’s hard to really call these foods “favorites” as Disneyland Paris is notoriously ill-suited for vegans (but for the sake of maintaining some coherence in this vegan-travel-series the title remains).
It is perfectly possibly to visit Disneyland Paris as, or with, a vegan. You just have to know where to go and what to get.
