Easy Rawnola

Rawnola has been quite a trend on the breakfast-front lately, but I hadn't tried it until this week. And wow, I'm hooked. It's easier and faster to make than regular granola and it reminds me a bit of raw cookie dough, so so good. I looked up a few recipes but ended up tweaking it a lot to my taste, so I'm sharing my own recipe with you. It contains six ingredients, most of which you'll probably have in your pantry already!

Williamsburg Mini Guide | New York

Williamsburg is my favorite area in Brooklyn. There's a totally different vibe than in Manhattan, I would describe it as more European, maybe a little East London. I spent many Saturdays and Sundays in Williamsburg to escape the busy streets across the bridge. If you're visiting New York, I would highly recommend taking the city bike (or walk) over the Williamsburg Bridge and explore this area for a day. Although I already made a complete New York guide, I've put together this little guide for all of you who want to visit Williamsburg when you're in NYC.

Zucchini ricotta quiche

Tonight I made my first quiche ever. I've never liked quiche. Too eggy, too dense, too heavy, and overall a dish I never really enjoyed eating. When I was in Spain two weeks ago, my friend made a quiche one night which was light, filled with vegetables and truly delicious. And as if it was meant to be, one of my favorite food Instagrammers posted a beautiful quiche on her blog today, so I used her recipe and a bit of my own interpretation to make a really tasty quiche. My family approved, so I'm sharing the recipe now that it's still fresh in my memory.

NY#17

This was June, and my last weeks in New York started. I tried to make the MOST of every second here, while also juggling deadlines and final projects. I went to a beach in New York (yes a real beach!), tried a popular model workout, discovered the quietest most relaxing swimming pool in the city and partied with Leonardo DiCaprio (well, kinda). All the places I mention in this post are in my New York Guide, have you seen it yet?

What to do in Jávea (Xàbia) Spain

I've just come back from a four-day getaway to Spain, Jávea to be specific. I visited this little town in the province of Alicante in 2012, so it was high time to go back for round two. I flew with Tui directly from Antwerp to Alicante, where my friend was waiting to pick me up. We sped off (after my first intro to driving an automatic car) to Jávea and jumped right into the pool when we arrived at the house. We spent the following days exploring beaches, markets, and bars, all of which I'll tell you about in this mini guide to Jávea.

Watermelon 'pizza'

I thought I had once written about one of my favorite summer snacks before, but a quick search on the blog told me I hadn't. I couldn't believe it because it's SO good. So today I wanted to share with you a super simple recipe to make watermelon "pizza". It's a super fresh snack which you can whip up in 5 minutes. I've also recently found a coconut yogurt which is so good, not too heavy and a little sour, which perfectly complements the sweetness of the watermelon and berries. All you'll need is 6 ingredients and a sharp knife!

My take on 'What the health'

Netflix has just launched yet another controversial documentary which seems to have everyone (remotely interested in food/nutrition) talking. If you haven't yet seen it, these are the three main themes of the documentary, summarized: animal products are the source of many chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease, a vegan diet is the answer to prevent and cure most diseases and lastly, non-profit organizations give people misinformation about the dangers of animal products because they are funded by major food companies. Quite loaded, isn't it? Read further if you want to hear what I think about all of this.
