• Taco Time

  • Mashed potatoes with endive and organic bacon

    Another typically Dutch dish, this time with all the amazing benefits of endive lettuce (also called escarole). Endive is slightly bitter, which gives this dish a great bite. When it comes to health benefits, endive contains phytonutrients, fiber and vitamins (including the super cancer-preventing folate) which are all essential for proper functioning of the body. So, do yourself a favour and have this meal!

  • Oven rosemary potatoes with organic beef burgers

    If I eat meat, which I don’t do often because there is so much other food to love, I eat organic meat because of a few important facts. First of all, if you eat meat you want it to be from animals fed on their natural diets (for example, cows fed on grass).  This is the only diet those animals are genetically made to handle. When animals are fed a diet that is not natural to them, they become sick, and when we eat the meat of those animals, we eat sickened meat. Secondly, you want your meat to come from animals who have had space to move around and…

  • Which oils to use for cooking?

    Stuck on the one and only sunflower oil or still cooking on olive oil? Oh no! Check this out for inspiration! COCONUT OIL A superfood that goes a long way. Coconut oil is very suitable for cooking (especially Asian meals) at high temperatures. It is also perfect for desserts and cakes. It is rich in unsaturated fats and has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. It is solid at room temperature (and in the fridge ofcourse, where you can keep it if you do not use it often) but if you live somewhere really warm (or if you heat it or leave it out in the sun) it will become a transparent…

  • Papain & papaya

    If you can get your hands on a papaya, do! This gift of nature is an exotic treatment for your body. Papayas are known for their anti-inflammatory and cleansing properties for the whole body. The main enzyme in papaya, called papain, is a known enhancer of wound healing and helps fight infections. Eating papaya weekly can even help keep your teeth healthy! Papaya can also be eaten regularly to smooth digestion and ease symptoms of Irritable Bowel Disease (such as constipation). The seeds of papaya (although not tasty (I tried them)), can be mashed up and eaten to help cure intestinal (parasite) infections. Did you know that drinking fresh papaya leaf juice can even…

  • All 20 building blocks for protein: Hemp seed

    As the winter wind took up the moisture from my skin, I looked for evermore foods to keep my skin healthy. Hemp seeds are one of the foods I discovered! Hemp  seeds contain all 20 amino acids (making them a good source of protein), omega 3,6 and 9 and phytonutrients. This makes them a great and easy additive to any savoury meal or fruit juices/shakes. They have a slighly nutty flavour, which makes them most suitable for savoury dishes, I think. You can throw hemp seeds through your salad, onto your sandwich or on top of your quiche! They can be bought at health-food stores and refregirated for up to 3 months.…

  • Fresh lemonade

    Drinking freshly squeezed lemon juice in water, hot or cold, has many benefits for your body. Use it as a step on the way to a super healthy body and glowing skin! 1. Water. A lot of people forget to stay hydrated. If you eat a lot of watery foods, such as fruits and vegetables, you do not need to drink 2 liters of water per day. However, most people do not get sufficient water from their fruit and vegetable intake. Any soda’s are NOT the same as keeping hydrating, since the sugar you ingest when you drink soda actually makes your body NEED more water to compensate. So, a…
