New to vegan – now what?

O help now what about my protein?? You made the decision that from now on you’ll only be eating plant-based foods and no animal products anymore. But what are the things you need to look out for and which nutrients need to be substituted? And because I am still in the learning phase myself I made a handy checklist. Protein…

Vega(n) while traveling

We’ve just arrived back from Copenhagen and I have to conclude that it is not always easy to eat vegan while traveling. For starters, I am still getting used to it myself, I find it hard to ask for vegan options and so I went for vegetarian mostly. That is a bit easier when you’re dining out, although I did…

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…

Diary of a whole30: week #1

Day #1: Ain’t the first day always the very very easiest? Full of motivation and still pumped to get started. Or at least that is how I felt on day 1. I was totally ready to get going and totally fed up with eating junkfood and eating unhealthy stuff and feeling crap. So that was a good beginning. I was…

Getting fit, the hard way….

Back in the day – roughly eight months ago – when I could still walk and move like a normal person (for as far as I even know what normal is…lol) it was much easier to lose weight. I could even have a snack here and there and still lose some kilo’s in the process. But now that moving is…

The end of an era…

I started Junglefrog Cooking more than 8 years ago now. That eventually (through lots of stupid mistakes and other errors) progressed into In Simone’s Kitchen. But times have changed. I have changed and I found recently that I didn’t feel as motivated as before to ad new posts. Time to move on. Simone’s Kitchen will still exist under the Dutch…

Ankle update

Sometimes it dawns on me how long ago it has been since I had the accident and how much has changed in my life due to that stupid accident… I still can’t walk and next week is going to be an important week as I have a check up at the hospital with hopefully good news. I made the mistake…

Blogging is dead?

You hear it more and more often: blogging is dead or Almost dead. It’s the thing your grandparents started but kids these days are on snapchat, periscope or one of those other new channels. If they are looking for a review on a machine or book (if they would still read a book, because wasn’t printed media dead too??) they…

Would you eat insects if all else was gone?

It’s a hot topic apparently or so scientists would like us to believe it is… eating insects is sustainable, good for you and good for the environment. Farms are rising up here and there around the country. Farms that do not grown vegetables or animals but are solely there to grown worms or some other kind of edible insect. I’ve…

A year gone by and looking ahead

It’s odd how things can change. Had I known upfront how my year would end I might have done things differently. Or would I? I guess that is one of those questions you can’t really answer. My year started off slow, at least professionally. Not a lot of jobs and I was getting worried until somewhere in april all tables…

Accidents hide in little corners….

What was supposed to be the highlight of our trip to Norway ended up being the absolute lowpoint: a dogsledding trip with Alaskan Husky Tours. The day started out really well. We were all looking forward to this day which would include dogsledding, a sleighride and a visit to a reindeer farm. All good things on the last day! But…
