Is coffee healthy or not? 

I believe coffee can be part of a healthy lifestyle. This may sound strange coming from a health coach who helps people detox from coffee but I do believe that coffee, or anything else for that matter, is not a problem for your health when used in moderation. However, if you need eight cups of coffee to simply get through your day, it’s a whole different story. Read my 12 tips on how to embrace healthy coffee drinking habits.Read More

Pop-up Dinner Amsterdam

Our Pop-up dinners welcome young social & creative entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial spirits who like to connect with like-minded people in a setting outside of a commercial restaurant. Dinners are held in the privacy of someone’s home. The purpose is to meet new people, to share ideas and inspire each other, all while enjoying a delicious home-cooked meal. Bring an open mind, a positive, relaxed and curious attitude and a strong desire to connect with new people.Read More

Grød and Granola

Copenhagen is the place to be for food lovers. You can get amazing food almost everywhere. If you are looking for the best places to try out porridge or granola in Copenhagen, there’s two places you must visit, Granola and Grød. I fell in love with the wholesome and hearty breakfast served at Granola in Vesterbro. And Grød, a cosy porridge bar in Norrebro, inspired me to start making my own granolas and porridge mixes, even selling them at The Sustainable Food & Art Marketplace in Amsterdam.Read More

Bakers and Roasters

I fell in love with Bakers and Roasters on my first visit and my heart has only grown fonder ever since. At Bakers and Roasters they serve wholesome, hearty dishes, clean food, excellent coffee and lovely fresh juices. The place looks healthy too. As you are sitting down for breakfast, crates of fresh fruit and vegetables are staring back at you and there’s always someone behind the counter juicing fresh fruit and vegetables.

The Proud Otter

At the front of Charlie+Mary, a sustainable fashion store in de Pijp, there’s a lovely cafe called The Proud Otter that I love to hang out on weekdays. You can sit down for a cup of locally roasted coffee or have a small bite. All the food is home-made and organic, from the scones and the hummus to the sourdough bread and the elderberry flower cordial. It’s delicious, simple and homely food. I love picking up a magazine, while enjoying enjoying a homemade sandwich and a perfect cup of coffee.Read More

Venkel An Organic Salad Bar

Venkel, an organic salad bar in De Pijp, just opened up its doors a few days ago. I have enjoyed it so much that I have already been there twice. I am already a great fan of SLA, the organic salad bar on the Ceintuurbaan, but you can never have too many salad bars in your neighbourhood. Read More

Cooking veggies at De Librije

Eating your greens never was this exciting! I recently attended a workshop at Librije’s atelier with a focus on cooking with vegetables.

Cooking with vegetables can be so versatile and exciting. Read More

Around the Kinfolk Table

Last Saturday evening we attended the Amsterdam Kinfolk Table Dinner, part of the Kinfolk dinner series that are held in honour of the recent release of The Kinfolk Table cookbook. A wonderful book with recipes for small gathering come from creative home cooks all around the world. The Kinfolk dinners are meant to be small and simple, home-style dinners where people can easily connect. Chantal and Harry were the perfect hosts for the Amsterdam Kinfolk dinner. They created a casual, welcoming dining atmosphere where everyone could relax and feel at home. Read More

Healthy Fast Food Is Hot

Healthy fast food is hot. Urban Salad Bar opened its door last October in commercial zone ‘de Bijlmer’ and, just recently, SLA, an organic salad bar, opened up in De Pijp. Both are a huge success. And they prove that fast food can be healthy. Eating unhealthy foods can put a lot of unnecessary stress on our bodies. Life can get stressful enough as it is. Changing your diet can have a huge impact on how we handle the stresses of life. Read More

EENMAAL

A dinner for you and you only? EENMAAL (literally one meal/one time) is the world’s first ‘one person’ restaurant. The pop-up restaurant opened its doors last week in Amsterdam. It was open for two days only. According to Marina van Goor, creator of the concept, EENMAAL, aims to create a perfect place to dine in pleasant solitude and to make dining alone an exciting experiment for those who never go out to dinner alone. In this post I share my experience and explain why I have fallen in love with this new take on dining solo.Read More

SLA, An Organic Salad Bar

I can’t wait to find out more about this new organic salad bar, SLA, in De Pijp. Most places in De Pijp serve sandwiches or they offer one daily salad. I am not a cheese sandwich girl and I stay away from gluten most of the time. Instead I prefer having a big salad for lunch, with lots of fresh vegetables and herbs. I can’t wait to find out more about this new salad bar, SLA (lettuce in Dutch).Read More

Cottoncake

Cottoncake is truly one of my favorite places in De Pijp. De Pijp is Amsterdam’s SoHo, a very lively area filled with small cafes, eateries, boutique shops and vintage stores. Cottoncake is both shop and café. They combine two things I love: cotton and cake. Cotton stands for the beautiful unique clothing and design items they sell and cake for the lovely, fresh foods they serve here. Cottoncake has almost become like a second home to me. I am here quite often. It has a cozy, relaxed atmosphere. I love to take my friends here for lunch, meet up with my clients, read a book or work behind my laptop.Read More
