    Sweet Potato & Broccoli Wraps

    IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A WRAP TO HOLD YOU TIGHT (thank you Nelly Furtado’s ‘Promiscuous’ lyrics), you have come to the right place. It has been a rather active and slightly exhausting week and by the time it was Saturday I could feel my body needing TLC in shape of easy food and good rest. I strolled through the supermarket and chose my most favorite healthy ingredients: sweet potato, broccoli, avocado and corn – then realized these would make an amazing wrap combined with delicious feta cheese!

  • Fruity Crumble with Bastogne Cookies

    CRUMBLE TIME! This was the first time I baked with my father. We chose a crumble because it is simple to make and comforting to eat. This post is 100% affiliate free, I just really love the taste of Bastogne cookies (you can buy them in The Netherlands). A fruit-laden crumble is a great healthier dessert. This one is loaded with berries, topped off with apple and rough oats (a good source of B vitamins and fiber), and does not contain dairy. To make the crumble gluten-free, simply use gluten-free cookies. If you’re considering serving it with ice cream: check out Jaime’s 45 second ice cream. Print Recipe Fruity Crumble…

  • Mackerel & Olive Pizza with Fresh Basil

    LAST SUMMER, I MADE THIS DELICIOUS FEISTY PIZZA. It is a summer special worth making again and again! Goes well with a glass of fresh lemonade or white wine. Also perfect for lazy winter nights though, especially with the benefits of fatty fish. MACKEREL IS A FATTY FISH just like salmon, except that is it less expensive. I buy it canned from an organic food store or smoked from a local who catches them in the wild. Whichever you choose, make sure that your mackerel is wild and organic to get the most out of this healthy fish. MACKEREL IS RICH IN omega-3, making it a potent anti-inflammatory food. With…
