What I love about fall are not only the beautiful colors of the trees on a crisp and sunny fall afternoon, but also the fact that pumpkin and gingerbread are being added to menus again.
After having overnight oats for breakfast every day of the week for a few years (and pancakes or oatmeal on the weekends), I’m now experimenting more with different foods for breakfast. Sweet potatoes are one of my favorites because they’re naturally lightly sweet and easy to combine with other breakfast foods, like coconut yogurt and granola.
I’ve been working from home for 2 months now, and my eating habits are quite different than they were in the office. I still have breakfast between 8 and 9, lunch around 12 and dinner around 6 or 7, but the meals themselves and the snacks in between are different.
I love having smoothie bowls for breakfast! Especially when they’re made with a high speed blender, so they are actually as smooth as their name suggests. Smoothies make it easy to sneak in all important nutrients, they are creamy, versatile and delicious. This one contains more vegetables than fruits, but you can’t even taste them!
While it can make you feel amazing to eat healthy, and there are plenty of healthy AND delicious dishes, sometimes you are just craving something sweet or any kind of comfort food. If you still want to make it yourself, instead of just ordering a pizza, I have got you covered with these recipes!
In my opinion, nothing (apart from the smell of freshly brewed coffee) is more pleasant to wake up to than a house smelling of warm cinnamon and toasted nuts. This is exactly what you will get when you make a batch of this vegan granola.
This creamy, sweet and slightly spicy tomato soup is the perfect comforting dinner for me during this lockdown. The soup is healthy – packed with carrots, tomatoes and chili flakes – and the grilled cheese sandwich is the indulgent sidekick, which actually takes the stage once you take a bite.
Last week, I could only eat soft foods because I had a wisdom tooth surgery. And since I was really craving chocolate and we had a few ripe avocados, I tried out this chocolate mousse.
If you are currently (self-)quarantined at home, and don’t know what to do with yourself anymore…why not bake a cake? This vegan red wine cake is one of the easiest cakes I’ve ever made, and it turns out so good every time!
This split pea soup is easy to make and packed with healthy vegetables. For the pictures, I left the soup very thick, more like a purée, but you can add more water to give it a thinner consistency.
