‘Food is everything. it’s a medicine, it’s energy, it brings you back to your roots, it’s delicious, it’s about nurturing yourself and others….. and how simple a meal can be, it should be a celebration every day’
“If you ask me, there is no truth about food”
Every human body is different and unique. So when it comes to food and nurture yourself…then there is no ‘one size fits all’. However, I truly belief in balance and for me a plant based lifestyle with a variety of; grains, beans, veggies, seeds, seaweed and pickles works best.
I cook on location (mostly for retreats based on personal and spiritual development), share knowledge, provide cooking classes and organize diners. The ingredients I use are locally grown vegetables and organic products. Creating something out of nothing is wat makes me happy. Fresh herbs, colors, different structures, seasonal products and a little bit of me ;), is my magic equipment in the kitchen .
“To nourish you body and mind, food should be of high quality. It keeps you focused, centered and more happy. That’s what I believe”
What you need to know about me
- After working for 10 years in the financial sector, I’ve made a transition; quit my job, followed different studies and became certified as a vegan plant based chef and natural health coach
- At this moment I’m actually a ‘nomad chef’ / ‘chef on wheels’ (see next line)
- Me and my boyfriend left our city life in Holland behind, bought a camper and started exploring Portugal (for now) with one goal: find land to life and create a permaculture lifestyle (more info? follow us at FB, INST, or read our stories)
- I love to walk in the forrest….in my own bubble and do some wild foraging
- Mornings are the best; yoga, walk my dog, make breakfast and be creative!
- What I do, I do with passion and energy
- I’m open, curious, enthusiastic and love to connect with people
- Stubborn, being a perfectionist and not wanting too much in a unrealistic time line is still something I’ve to work on
- I will not push you to eat plant based, however I will do my best to awaken your enthusiasm and inspire you 🙂
