What I ate in the month June

Dear readers,

I have not posted a blog about this for such a long time! So I might as well now. This has been food from the month June. I must say, I see a lot of veggies in these pictures, but I did not ate enough veggies by any means. So don’t let that fool you!

  I loved these cookies when I was a little girl! Nowadays they are not that ‘WOW’.

My friend gave me ”ME” as a cake for my birthday. Iconic print if you ask me.

This cake was done in 3 days with my fam!

Random food, I think it’s tuna.

Salad is my main food, cuz it’s easy and divers!

Random leftovers (chickpeas, tuna and some cucumber and tomatoes)

Alwayssss salad!

Some tea with a good friend and a great egg/salmon BLT (that I forgot to take a picture of) I cooked since ages and made a vegan curry.

Salmon, chickpeas and tomatoes

My doggo’s are living the life with salmon, veggies and pate (real bro meal)

Salmon, potatoes from the air-fryer and leftover chickpeas. As you can see I ate some Salmon this past month. Out with a friend and some appetizers.

This is something that I eat twice a weak for the past year or so. Eggs and whole wheat bread or lit! I am not a fan of boiled eggs, but a sunny-side up is always my jam.

Salad with Turkish cheese!

Cuz I make shitty pictures. :’) But we had some crazy ass good cakes with discount.

Salad for mom and me (always use tuna in oil).

My first time eating pizza without cheese….by accident. We got some free wine as an apology from the waiter. While I am writing this, we just finished one box of mango’s. Really these either are super good or super bad. One of my favorites to eat.

Kumpir, this is a beast of a meal and #TBH I love it. I wish I could finish it, but crazy heavy.

Can wake me up for eggs, always.

After not eating any type of veggies and feeling awful for the pas 3 days, I chose to eat a side salad during lunch. I always feel so low after not eating veggies for a day. So 3 days were too much!

So cute, but my boss always hooks my up with food. Even when I am visiting or sit at the bar. He always makes sure I have some veggies in the meal as a dietitian XD. Thank god I always jump in to help when I am visiting. Otherwise I would feel so guilty.

And last meal, was a meal made of scratch! 2 whole eggs, one egg-white, brown rice and a lot of lettuce mixed with veggies. Keeping the veggie game a bit higher upcoming days.

What’s your favorite dish? Let me know in the comments!

Greetings,

What I ate randomly the past two weeks

Dear readers,

Well these past two weeks were actually good, food wise speaking. I really enjoyed the foods I have been eating. I am not a person that really believes that you should eat oats only in the morning or a grilled cheese is only a lunch thing. So I eat the most random things at the most random moments. I try to opt for 200 grams of veggies each day and two pieces of fruit most of the time. It always ends in 3 pieces of fruit and either 300 grams of veggies or 100 grams or sometimes not at all. And to be honest that’s fine. You cannot always get what you want, right?

Next to this I ate some pork meat last week (19-26 april) and damn, not my jam. I was nauseous half of the day. I only eat some chicken sometimes and during my period a bit of red meat, in Dutch (ossenworst) a cured Jewish sausage on some bread. So that said, I think I’will keep eating a bit of meat (two days a week or less) and keep it vegetarian the rest of the week. Enjoy this one!

Simple slice of bread and an egg that looks like a fish if you ask me.

So these donuts were bought for the birthday of Dino (my dog) he got a little part on his birthday (22th of April) and we ate.. yeah the whole damn thing.

I am always team chocolate

I had a ‘whay I eat in a day’ on Instagram. This was rice with tofu and chickpeas. It was a high protein day without meat.

I call these my dietitian fries. low sugar and low fat sauces and fresh fries. It really saves you around 300 calories.

Tosti aka grilled cheese is my jam. Always.

Soaking biological chickpeas.

Some apple.

Some chicken with veggies. This was supper.

Protein shake with banana, almond milk and prozis whey.

Whole wheat egg breakfast wrap.

1/2 chicken burger with ketchup.

Dino’s birthday prayer (It’s a Hindu thing).

Dogfood at our home is almost always fresh meat, greens and rice.

I really craved this. Why on earth are there two in a package….

This has been either my lunch or breakfast. Banana, nuts, greek yoghurt 10% fat, jam and that’s it.

Your hormones (as a female) will be thankful for this or Turkish yoghurt 8%.

Brunch in the morning, cuz I had way too many appointments.

Fatty fish for the healthy fats.

Making a shake again :D.

These were snacks in the afternoon.

My breakfasts the last two weeks. Yes that’s soup.

I am so bad in pastry. And Lazy, so I often buy them. But these were Indonesian pastry with minced cow meat.

How to eat sustainable?

Hello readers,

We all want to be more sustainable, but how do we do that? Today I translated the page of the Government health Institution (Het Voedingscentrum). They use 7 steps for being more sustainable. (Would you like to read the Dutch version? Go here.)

1. Waste as little food as possible. If you buy, cook and store smartly, you don’t have to waste as much food. The food is then produced for a reason. Making a shopping list and a weekly menu helps you to do smart shopping. Custom cooking is easy with a kitchen scale or a measuring cup. And by keeping food in the right place, it will last longer. You do not have to throw away products with an expired best before date, such as dairy products. Look, smell and taste a little to judge the quality.

2. Eat less red and processed meat. Meat has a high environmental impact. Red meat in particular (beef, pork, goat and sheep) is very damaging to the environment. Therefore, replace red and processed meat with legumes such as beans, lentils or chickpeas, unsalted nuts or egg. You can also choose sustainable fish with an MSC or ASC quality mark. Replace cold cuts on bread with roasted vegetables, hummus or other vegetable spreads.

3. Don’t take more dairy and cheese than you need. For your health it is beneficial to take a few servings of dairy every day (approx. 300 – 450 ml of milk / yogurt) and about 40 grams of cheese (approx. 2 sandwiches). More is not necessary. Eating a lot of cheese in particular creates a high environmental impact. Therefore, regularly invest your sandwich with vegetables, fruit, hummus or peanut butter / nut spread.

4. Don’t eat more than you need and avoid snacks and sweets. If everyone who eats too much eats less, this will bring a lot of environmental benefits. So don’t eat more than you need. In particular, avoid unhealthy products that are high in calories such as fried snacks, chips, biscuits, cakes, candies, and ice cream. Check here how much you need, or fill in the Eetmeter.

5. Drink as little sugary drinks and alcohol as possible. Soft drinks, fruit juices and alcohol have a high climate impact and are not good for your health. Therefore, especially drink water and tea and coffee without sugar. Tap water is the least harmful to the environment. With coffee and tea you can pay attention to the Fairtrade (Max Havelaar), UTZ and Rainforest Alliance quality marks.

6. Go for whole grain cereals, fruits and vegetablesWhen putting your meal together, prefer plant-based products. Think of whole grain cereals, vegetables, fruit, potatoes, legumes, a handful of nuts and vegetable oils every day. Most plant products have a low climate load.

7. With fruit and vegetables, pay attention to origin and seasonFruit and vegetables have a low environmental impact. If you take seasonal products and pay attention to the origin, you are completely green. Choose vegetables that have a low environmental pressure all year round. Think of broccoli, red cabbage, leek, beetroot, onion, carrots, chicory and celery. Products from outside Europe that arrive by plane have a higher climate impact. This also applies to vegetables from heated greenhouses. Consult the fruit and vegetable calendar and choose for the fruit in your current month.

Hope this helped. Big shoutout to the Voedingscentrum!
