Why do I prep? During the week, I’m often quite busy and tend to be running around a lot, which is why I’m always on the lookout for tasty recipes that I can take with me or to have it in the fridge /freezer so I don’t have to worry about what to eat! ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀... Read more

Less obligation, more enjoyment

It’s almost Christmas! For me, personally, it’s always a great time of year. As a Powerfoodie, it’s my time to go nuts in the kitchen. It doesn’t matter where I am – at home or abroad – I always use the holidays as an opportunity to get in the kitchen. I like to serve the tastiest bites and drinks to my... Read more


Monthly intentions

I think having a positive spirit leads to a positive life. This is why I try to create ‘good vibes’ for myself every day.

Measurement conversion: from grams to cups

I love my Powerkitchen in New York. I try to make sure that I always have the most essential ingredients on hand so I can whip something up in a flash.

How do I stay in balance?

I like to eat. Everyone knows that! And, yes, I do like to eat healthy because it’s what makes me happiest. I’ve been aware of my eating habits since I was young. My body doesn’t digest things quickly. I have always had the feeling that I don’t need to eat much to keep my motor running (I think this might, in... Read more

We’re working so hard on a project at work right now (+ I’m writing book 5) and when I think about where we need to be, it all seems insurmountable. So much needs to happen! Picture: Anne Timmer But, just like with writing a book, at a... Read more
