Cooking angle

Every day it is a recurring activity: cooking! Because we also regularly ask 'What do we eat again tonight?' we regularly install new recipes. But cooking is of course much more than just reading and executing recipes.

In this section we give tips and more information about delicious and healthy food!

Disc of five

De Schijf van Vijf consists of 5 courses full of healthy products to choose from. Every day you choose from every subject - according to taste and need - products. There is something you like in every part. If you do not like potatoes, then you simply choose a wholegrain pasta. No appetite for Broccoli? Then your string beans might be fantastic. Even if you want to eat vegetarian, that is fine to do on the basis of the Schijf van vijf.

The basis of the Schijf van Vijf consists of products that are good for your body according to the latest scientific insights. If you base your diet on the principle of the Disc of five you will get enough vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, fibers and fats. If you do not eat too many products outside the Schijf of five, then the chances are good that your weight will stay up to scratch. And sometimes you can of course pamper yourself with something that is not on the disc, but what you really like!

Tips and facts

Recipe: Vegetarian Lasagne

A few months ago I enjoyed the HelloFresh meal packages for a few weeks. We had delicious, healthy and versatile for those weeks. In addition to the ingredients, there are always recipes in the meal boxes. I have preserved the recipes of the most delicious dishes, but they were pretty much all of them. Every now and then, I pick up such a recipe again and get to work on it. Most recipes are made with simple (mostly fresh) products and usually it does not take you much time to make it. Especially when you combine work and family, that is an important detail. In addition, I personally find it important to work with fresh products as much as possible and to make as little use as possible of ready-made bags and packages.

National Crocus Day - Also such a phrase in a croquette?

"Please, the menu." What are you taking for lunch? " I do not have to think twice about this question. "Bread with two croquettes and mayonnaise." My table companion is very surprised. "Do you eat croquettes with mustard?" Well, not I. I think croquettes with mayonnaise are delicious and especially on white bread. "Without butter, because that is unhealthy," I say jokingly, but with a croquette at lunch, you can always make me happy. 'National Day of Croquettes' is a holiday for me.

3 Golden tips for healthy food

Today is the day of the dietitian, therefore I would like to pay a little extra attention to healthy nutrition today. Eating healthy is important for everyone, not only if you want to get rid of a few excess pounds. Losing those pounds is often not a problem, but to keep them off often requires a definitive turnaround in your diet. Losing weight is not a matter of 'a good diet', losing weight is about improving your physical and mental health. And a good dietitian can of course help you with that. After all, she is very knowledgeable about good nutrition, but you might find such a weekly visit too much of a hassle - because we are all busy busy - and that is why I have three practical golden tips here.

Chocolate - International chocolate day

Today is International chocolate day. I love chocolate, so I can not let this day go unnoticed. If I write about it already, the water is already running into my mouth. And I think so with many. I have never heard: "I do not like chocolate". Just go around with a bowl of chocolate and almost everyone will take something.

With the blender you make the most delicious dishes

If you have a bit of cooking and baking, your kitchen is soon too small. When I look around, I have collected quite a few devices over the years, such as a bread machine, hand blender, table grill, sandwich maker and food processor. Frankly, this is not even everything and I can continue for a while. However, I rarely use most of the devices, and actually they only get in the way. However, there is one device that I use more than regularly and that is the blender. Because only with the blender I can make my favorite dishes and when Rocco was still small I made perfect blends with the blender.

Monkey Platter - Your child determines what he eats!

Have you ever heard of a Monkey Platter? Not yet? That could just happen, because it is a fairly unknown concept in the Netherlands. In general, it means that your toddler can choose what he wants to eat. Babies and small children naturally seem to choose varied food. That sounds interesting and that is of course also. This is about offering a diversity of healthy products. Research has shown that children do not eat at all unilaterally if they are allowed to choose, on the contrary.
And the beauty is, of course you decide what you put on the Monkey Platter! Because free choice is fine, but within your frameworks.

The effect of sugar

Whenever I am on the line and I consciously do not eat sugar (and as few carbohydrates as possible), after a few days I notice that my body is changing. I do not mean so much that it loses weight (hopefully too), but I mean above all that I am less stiff, moving easier and I experience the movements as less painful. I often notice these results after a week. How come?

How does Marley Spoon taste?

Is it such a difficult question every day: "What are we eating tonight?" I love to cook and I prefer to eat fresh and varied every day, but sometimes I just do not even have a day out. Especially when I am tired and lustless and without any inspiration through the supermarket. Cooking is often not even the problem, but inventing it ... every day. The risk of grabbing something familiar or easy is obvious. But you do not always feel like stew?

Gluten intolerance or celiac disease
