No, I wasn’t one of those people who started baking banana bread religiously during the pandemic. I’ve always loved banana bread, but I’ve never had the perfect recipe, I always ended up trying different ones. But now I’ve finally honed in on a recipe and perfected it.
Now that the terraces have opened again in Amsterdam, I have put together a list of my favorite vegan (friendly) restaurants and cafés for you. These are the places I go to most often. Unfortunately, some of my favorite restaurants have closed during the pandemic, but luckily there are still so many good options in the city – let me know in the comments if you’ve tried any of them!
If you’re following my Instagram or have looked at this blog before, it’s easy to see that I’m a pancake lover. On the weekend, when I have time after a nice long yoga session, I whip up a stack of pancakes that keeps me full for half the day.
To be honest, I don’t like the taste of parsnip. Which is exactly why I love this recipe so much: the miso sauce has such a rich and savory taste that it overpowers the taste of the parsnips. This recipe is an easy vegan recipe for starters, and a delicious way to get your veggies in.
If you’re also in lockdown, and it’s winter where you are, chances are you spend a lot of weekend mornings inside. The days blend into one another and it can easily feel like groundhog day every morning you wake up. To help you tell the days apart, how about mixing up your breakfast routine with some new ideas? I’ve compiled my favorite breakfast recipes for you to give you some inspiration.
I feel pretty lucky that when I was little, my mom was cooking healthy, homemade food for me. Even though I wasn’t the biggest fan of veggies, there was one dish my mom made that I loved: spinach lasagne!
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.
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.
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.
Ever since going vegan, I have gotten a blood test done on average once per year. Even though I know I am eating a more balanced and healthy diet than ever before in my life, I have become more aware of the connection between diet and health, and want to be sure my body has all the nutrients it needs.
