Take it slow

My great grandfather used to have his own organic bakery in the Frisian village, Gytsjerk. He used to make the most delicious naturally leavened breads. This nutritious bread took a relatively long time to make compared to the time it takes to produce the bread you see in the supermarket these days. But it’s... Read more

No Food Waste During the Holidays

This year I’ll be celebrating the holidays with my loved ones in the Netherlands and, of course, I’ll be serving up some of my tastiest dishes like ‘Mac ’n Sweet Potato’, roasted cauliflower with yummy tahini sauce and, my personal favorite, cinnamon ice cream. We already eat mostly plant-based and organic... Read more

Inner Self

Now that I’ve delved even further into ‘the law of attraction’ and astrology, I’m even more aware that you are happiest when you are true to your Inner Self. It allows you to live from pure awareness and, thus, accept yourself fully the way you are. From a young age, I was engaged in self-discovery and found... Read more

Food prep

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. I do this by living mindfully, choosing my thoughts carefully and embracing vulnerability. I also take a bit of time each month (not just once a year), on the day of the new moon, to write my...

Celebrate the summer: 7 x events

Yes! It’s finally summer! When the weather is as nice as it has been, there’s nowhere I’d rather be than outside, listening to the birds singing, taking in some sun and simply enjoying the beauty of nature. I also love going to the many (food) festivals and events on offer during the summer with my friends and... Read more

Lavender bath salt

I love to relax and treat myself by taking a warm bath every now and then. Especially when I can take the time for it: including an inspirational book, candles and… homemade bath salt. Whenever I add lavender essential oil to this bath salt it creates an ultimate moment of relaxation in my bathroom. Have you made a... Read more

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. And if I’ve forgotten something, I just walk over to the deli around the corner. So chill! It makes putting together recipes that much easier. What I find less... Read more

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

This shea butter deodorant is all natural, soft for your skin and has a fresh peppermint scent. It is also much cheaper and more sustainable than normal deodorant because you can... Read more

Enjoy the process

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” - Nelson Mandela. 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

Spring clean out

I’m so happy that’s it’s spring again. I’ve really been looking forward to it. The winter seemed really long this year. Don’t you think? Everything starts to pop out of the ground again this time of year, so it’s time for us to plant some seeds again. For me, this season is all about cleansing and cleaning... Read more
