Recently, my younger sister decided to start eating vegan. As I want to support her in whatever she does, I decided to incorporate a bit of vegan into my life/blog too. I guess she inspired me a bit too. Inspired me to be more conscious of all the kinds of food I mindlessly stuff into my body (which is a lot!). And also, you know, how bad could it be to eat vegan a couple of times a week? I don’t think anyone has ever died from cutting down on meat anyway. So in light of this “new diet”, I wanted to share a vegan lunch recipe I developed with you guys today: Vegan Tofu Lunch Wraps. FYI: These wraps have been approved by my vegan sister ánd my meat-loving boyfriend. Read more

As some of you must know, lunch is something I spend quite some of my free time on. Now, I already have quite a few lunch recipes in my Recipe Index and a while back I shared some of my favorite lunches with you guys. Today I’ll be adding another lunch recipe to my repertoire. Yes, another. I just love lunch. Can you tell?

Today’s recipe is inspired by a classic Chinese take-out favorite: Sweet and sour chicken. This sandwich is super easy, super simple and tastes just like Chinese take-out on a sandwich. Maybe even better. This sandwich is best served with juicy pineapple, crunchy cucumber and fresh cilantro.

What’s your favorite Chinese take-out dish?

Wait, what?! Does that exist? Yes, “to eat”-lists are a real thing. Don’t judge. Read more

Healthy thai beef salad packed with vegetables and herbes. Drizzled with a light fish sauce-dressing this salad tastes sweet, sour and savoury all at the same time. There’s even room for a light spiciness.

A long time ago me and my boyfriend had dinner at a local restaurant called “Groen“. For our starters we picked a thai beef salad. And oh my gosh, the salad was só delicious that I wished I could have it for main and dessert too. Yes, thát good! Ever since I had that salad, the thought of making my own version has been lingering in the back of my mind. Last week it was time. I did it. I wish I had done it sooner, because the salad was so delicious. A mixture of different asian herbs, a bit of spice and a killer dressing on the side. Ready in a few minutes too. Great, right?
