These gorgeous VEGAN wraps are packed with color (vitamins!!) and flavor. They’re perfect for lunch, but you can easily serve these as an healthy dinner too. Even meat-eaters will love this.
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

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?
