I stopped drinking coffee (for various reasons), but I still eat coffee cake! This vegan hazelnut-chocolate-coffee cake is low in sugar – so it doesn’t taste too sweet – and can be made gluten-free. You can also leave out the hazelnuts in case of an allergy, and play around with the amount of sugar you add.
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.
As you can probably tell from the recipes on this blog, I love colorful food and experimenting with colors. This passion was fueled even more when I received the book Unicorn Food, in which Kat Odell put together healthy and colorful recipes, including her beautiful ‘unicorn milks’.
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.
The only thing I hate about waffles is how much work they are to make. I’m a minimalist, and also a lazy chef, so storing an extra kitchen appliance that has only one purpose and is also a pain to clean, just doesn’t really appeal to me. That’s why I usually opt for pancakes when I’m feeling extra on the weekends (instead of waffles).
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!
