One of my favorite ingredients to chuck into a salad? Smoked salmon. It is just a great way to add some protein to a meal and to add lots and lots of flavor. Today I’m talking you through some of my favorite combinations.
This time of year, I love a good smoothie. I always try to make mine filling so they can substitute entire meals. Over the years, I’ve tried many different recipes and combinations and I have come to find a couple that I like the most.
I used to take daily pictures of my plates of food, but lately I mostly just forget. This is why this overview spans what I ate in the past 6 months or so, starting in early December. That is a long period of time, so this by no means is an exact representation of the foods I eat. Nowadays I tend to photograph meals which are a touch more special, meaning that extravagant cheesecake I baked or that time I went out for an American breakfast. Here are the meals I thought were shareworthy.
I’ve really been trying to be more diligent about my eating patterns again. After having dabbled in low carbing, and going completely wheat free, things improved greatly and I found that I could eat anything I want again without too much discomfort. But that did mean that I went a little overboard. So late last summer I decided I needed a complete overhaul. I started working our more again and I made a point of eating food I love, while cooking regular meals and having the occasional treat as well. That’s why I thought it would be good to show you what I roughly buy on a weekly basis when I get my groceries. I hope you enjoy!

I love my comfort food and from time to time I like to cook up a feast in the form of hamburgers. But where I would usually make that with a bun and loads of different toppings, I figured that you could easily change things up. Inspired by a Blogilates recipe, I decided to replace the bun for a roasted portobello mushroom and some sauteed onions on the side. This makes a great, quick and easy recipe for the weekend.
A healthy cake? When I spotted this recipe, I knew I had to try it. I’ve been meaning to do some more baking again, but I just haven’t had the time to find new recipes to try. Until I spotted this that is. I found it on a random health website, which linked to this one, where you can find the original recipe in Dutch. I adapted it to fit my own needs and came out with this: a delicious yet healthy banana-coconut cake.

For a few years now I have mostly been on a wheat free diet. Back in 2013 I discovered wheat messed too much with my system and that’s when I started experimenting with substituting wheat. By now I have found quite a few products that I love using instead of wheat. Wheat is still the standard in most products though, so it sometimes takes a little bit of effort to make these work, but in the end these are all useful foods I keep in my cupboard at all times.
