Creamy Italian-style Quinoa Salad

I always bring my own lunch to work. It’s cheaper , better for your health and more delicious. I usually always take the same thing; deliciously ella’s cucumber-hazelnut quinoa or a salad. But a little while ago I felt like trying something different. Something new. I came up with this recipe on a whim but it tastes so good I’ve made it several times, since. It’s fresh, filling, creamy and full of healthy ingredients. This recipe is perfect as a to-go-lunch (make this batch the day before and you can bring it as a lunch for the next two days). I imagine this recipe will be a great addition when you’ve got a summer barbeque.Read More »

Flavorful seaweed pasta with cauliflower, tempeh and carrot

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.

Quick and Simple Peanut Butter Cups

img_2855I 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 »

Vegan Chickpea Scramble

img_4845.pngThis 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 »

Vegan Favorites: Disneyland Paris Edition

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.

Every woman should read this book!

Hey everyone,

It’s taken a while but I’m back with a book-post (the last one I posted was when I was still in New Orleans, which means it was over a year ago, which means that I almost had to give up my name “veganandherbooks”).

Today, I want to introduce to you a book that is life-changing, uplifting and inspiring.
I’m talking about Body Positive Power by Megan Jayne Crabbe.Read More »

Healthy Vegan Fruitcake

I love food and I love to eat. I always have. As you may expect, this means that I like snacks, too. But for a couple of years, now, I have been focused on being really healthy. So how can I snack healthily?

Well, I’ve come up with a recipe for little cakes that are really healthy, have no added sugar, are completely vegan and gluten free. I love having them as a snack or for breakfast, even! These little cakes can be made two different ways, depending on your mood or preference. But I suggest switching them off. That way you won’t get bored of them.Read More »
