From meat eater to vegetarian

It’s been something I’ve been thinking about for quite some time. I love animals and I am having a hard time getting my head around the way animals are treated in the meat industry. We always tend to look towards the mass meat industry but even in the more sustainable small farms, the animals are killed at some point. Don’t…

Leek soup and happy 2017!

Happy Newyear! I know, I know…. A little late but I still mean it! Does that count? I’m kinda glad the holidays are over and I’m even more glad that 2016 is over. It’s been a rough year with the accident taking up most of my year, my mum dying and lots of revalidation going on. And I’m still working…

Burned maple butter waffles

Waffles baby! Ever since I can remember I have this thing for waffles. Whenever I see them or rather, smell them, they call out my name and I just have to have one… Sometimes that is good, other times it is slightly disappointing. I’m sure we’ve all had those moments where you bite into a waffle and the crunch you’re…

Easy fudge with christmas flavors

Make your own fudge the easy way I love fudge but I was always under the impression that it involved a lot of complicated things like measuring the sugar temperatures and such. Until we discovered that you can make fudge with condensed milk. The first time we tried it we decided to try adding cherries into it, but – on…

And than there was… stew time

It’s chilly times I’m not a political person.  In fact, I kind of dislike politics. It’s never what you want it to be. Most politicians tell you one thing and than end up doing another thing entirely. But of course I’ve been following the ever so famous US election like everyone else on the planet. It’s pretty much the most…

Curacao – yet again

In case you were wondering: we’ve been hiding here in Curacao for the last couple of days. It’s been maybe not the best time to book a holiday in Curacao as we’ve had dodgy weather, threatening hurricanes (that thankfully passed), waters that went wild, beaches that disappeared and more of that kind of stuff. Well, ok, I’m making it sound…

Beetroot salad with pistache and blueberries – whole30 approved!

How beautiful does this look? I love beetroots; they kind of look a little bit like jewels in this salad especially combined with the blue berries… Yes, I’m still on my whole30 and yes this salad is of course whole30 approved and really really delicious.  I’ve been eating lots of beetroot lately but apparently there are beetroot lovers and beetroot…

The paleo solution

I’m reading The Paleo Solution at the moment from Robb Wolf. And my mind is in constant turmoil because of it. Part of me finds it endlessly fascinating to read and is convinced he must be telling the truth. Mostly also based on my own findings when doing the whole30. It just feels right. The other part of me, though,…

Diary of a whole30: week #2

Day #8: Day 8 already… Time flies. Only 22 left to go… O that sounds quite long actually. Haha.. Anyway, I had a trainingsession this morning with my PT so couldn’t eat a full breakfast and ended up eating one boiled egg and one banana. That turned out to be insufficient when you do a training session as I got…
