Many people eat a piece of meat or fish every day, including in our family. Quite honestly, I often think it's de best part of my dinner, but it's also a habit to eat meat or fish every day. We know that a day without meat is good for your health, the climate and of course the animals. I will probably never become a vegetarian, the term flexitarian appeals to me more. Consciously omit the piece of meat or fish one or more days a week and put a vegetable menu on the table. I now know that a vegetarian meal can ...

Perfect Green Smoothie

I have no idea how social distancing works for you, but I think it is quite tough by now. For the most part you are at home, with the children and the highlight of the day is going to the supermarket to do some shopping (when the delivery service is full). Time flies though, I'm hours short. Half a day you are a teacher, the other half of the day you do your own work. Between the companies you do a few washes, you make lunch, the dog has to get out several times a day, vacuum, mop etc. And before ...

They are a source of healthy fiber, protein and good carbohydrates. Because they contain so much protein, they are good meat substitutes. Ideal for ...

A while back I was with sweet Claudia from Beautytag.nl at the launch of the newest cookbook from Aviko 'La Dolce Vita', a recipe book that is full of delicious Italian dishes.

Basil in Genoa, truffle in San ...
