My opinion on The Green Happiness NRC article

Food is a hot topic nowadays. Everyone has an opinion about it, and god forbid if someone openly talks about their dietary preferences in public. Today I wanted to address something which was all over the press and social media in the Netherlands a couple of days ago. Two girls (nutritionists, vegan), talked about their enthusiasm for a specific diet they developed, which consists of mostly vegetables, in an online interview with one of the major newspapers called NRC. The shitstorm (excuse my French) that followed promptly after the publication of the interview kind of shocked me (Google "the Green happiness interview NRC" and you'll find plenty of opinion pieces, mostly negative ones). Having just received my nutritionist diploma and a big supporter of the vegan diet, I wanted to give my opinion as well, because I think most of the reactions towards this interview are hugely exaggerated.

Graanmarkt 13 Restaurant | Antwerp

The problem with having a big list of places you want to try is that it takes ages to finally get around actually trying them. Graanmarkt 13 had been on my to-do list for ages, so I decided to book a table there to celebrate my birthday with my family! I wanted to go here because Seppe Nobels, the chef, is Belgium's best vegetable chef. Graanmarkt 13 was even named one of the top 25 vegetable restaurants in the world. In a country where great vegetarian food is hard to find, this sounded like the perfect place for me!

August in pictures

This is my second attempt at writing this post. I'm having all kind of tech issues today, including the accidental deletion of ALL my bookmarks and this post. This must be a Monday ;) Anyway, August was a great month! I was a little busy the past two weeks with the start of my master course and my nutrition exam, hence the delay of this post. Now that I've started uni again, I will have even less time for blogging. But I still have to tell you about several trips (way overdue posts on Australia and Bali) and recipes, so I'll try my utmost best to write some good content for you this month.

Melbourne Food Hotspots

Melbourne is known as a real food city, which is the number one reason why it had been on my to-do list for so long (let's be honest). Like I expected, I loved the city! I tried to make the most of the five days I was there, so I walked and biked around the city every day. I spent my days discovering new neighbourhoods, parks, museums and stopping for some delicious meals in between! I already told you about some coffee and juice places in this post, but today it's time for the food hotspots.  I've got 13 Melbourne hotspots lined up, so let's get straight to it!

6 x coffee & juice in Melbourne

I spent the last five days of March 2016 in Melbourne, a city I had longed to visit for ages.  I left Christchurch early on a Sunday morning, and arrived in my Airbnb in Melbourne by 10 AM on Easter Sunday, just in time for brunch! But before I get into the food hotspots I tried in Melbourne, I wanted to share six coffee and juice spots. Melbourne is an absolute heaven for food lovers. There's a cute coffee place, juice bar, cafĂ© or restaurant literally everywhere you look! And Australians know how to do good coffee. And juice. There are hundreds of other places to discover in Melbourne, but I wanted to share six coffee and juice places I tried myself!

Easy vegan parmesan cheese

If there's one thing which is hard to replace when trying to eat vegan, it's cheese. When I say I eat vegan 90% of the time, the non-vegan 10% is cheese. Pretty much ;) On pizza, in a toastie, on a panini, on my pasta... Although I stay away from meat, butter, yoghurt, milk, fish etc., cheese is my guilty pleasure. There are alternatives but I haven't come across anything which comes close to a creamy burrata or salty mature cheddar. I'll keep looking! In the meantime, I've found a pretty great alternative to grated parmesan cheese, using 4 ingredients only. It's really super simple to make and you can sprinkle it on anything; from pasta to avocado toast!

How to eat healthily while traveling & road-tripping

A few months ago I travelled to New Zealand and Australia for two months, which was my first long trip ever. It was also my first time travelling by campervan (in NZ), which meant I had to use my creativity to come up with tasteful and healthy meals every day. With a limited amount of resources, it can be rather challenging! In this post I'll show you that you don't need to live off fast-food, pasta and cornflakes when travelling/backpacking. Especially when you travel, eating nutritious foods is super important. You need all the energy for hikes, walks, long beach days or whatever other activities you have planned. I've got a few tricks which worked quite well for me!How to eat healthy while traveling & road-tripping
