• ..Fancy a cuppa? ☕️☺️ // So tell me guys, are you in team coffee or tea? I’m definitely a tea-lover! I prefer to drink all kinds of green tea and you can make me with happy fresh ginger/mint as well🌿 As you can probably imagine, with a gorgeous backdrop like this, I was totally in my happy place.. • | Madison Restaurant, London
• Tulip paradise..❤️🌷 // Can you imagine being surrounded by thousands of vibrant, colorful tulips? ☺️ During Spring season, I always make sure to visit the bulb fields. They’re only in bloom for a very short period, so you need to plan your trip carefully. This time, @ishanaa4 & I went to the fields when the season had almost ended, but luckily we stumbled upon this one. Someone actually had to pinch me to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.. ;-) | Lisse, The Netherlands
• Hints of pink.. 💗 // Sooo, this week was my last week of class EVER! It’s still quite hard to believe my uni-life has almost come to an end after 5 years of studying. Only one more exam to go which I’ll be writing within 2 weeks.. In case you’re looking for me, I’ll prob be sitting behind my laptop surrounded by lots of articles, books & tea. 👵🏽 • | Notting Hill, London
• Take my hand and I’ll show you the world.. 🌸🐾 // Recently, I had the chance to visit Zijpe, which is home to one of the largest contiguous flowerfields in the world! Once a year, they organize an exclusive walking tour through the fields. Strolling alongside dozens of colorful flowers was absolutely an amazing experience I won’t easily forget 🙌🏾• | Zijpe, The Netherlands
• No matter how busy, hectic & stressful life can be, “𝘐 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘮𝘺 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘺𝘰𝘶..” 💗 // Just simply being in this station makes me want to pack my bags and travel somewhere far. There’s definitely something special about this place, and when I heard they recently installed a new art piece, I had to see it with my own eyes! • | St Pancras International , London
• Mum, this one’s for you.. 🌷// To all the powerful, caring, sweet & passionate mums out there, you deserve the world. Thank you for always taking care of us and making our lives complete. Happy Mothersday! 💋• | Lisse, The Netherlands

Let’s talk about breakfast. I share the general opinion that it’s the most important meal of the day. Why? Simply because it’s impossible for me to kickstart the day without fuelling myself with a healthy and filling meal. This is the main reason why I never skip it, and I still can’t imagine how some people are able to survive the day without having one. My all-time favourite breakfast dishes are quark with muesli or overnight oats. I always make sure to add in fruits & nuts for the extra vitamins, bite & flavour!

The colder days ask for hearty comfort food. Therefore, I decided to try something else last Sunday. When looking for inspiration on the internet I stumbled upon recipes with coconut flour. I became quite curious since I’d never tried it before, so I decided to give it a go. Nowadays you can find this type of flour in a lot of supermarkets. Its one and only ingredient is, as you can probably guess, coconut, which makes it a very natural and healthy product. And since I was craving pancakes… it was time to start baking!

Recipe Coconut flour pancakes

Ingredients:

-2 eggs

-1 banana

-35g coconut flour

-1 tablespoon cinnamon

-coconut oil

-1/2 table spoon baking powder

-toppings (optional): blueberries, coconut flakes & honey


Step 1: Mix the eggs, banana, coconut flour, cinnamon & baking powder (20 sec)

Step 2: Pour some coconut oil in a pan, put small heaps of batter into it and create round pancake shapes by using a fork (the texture makes it a bit difficult to create perfect shape, but I guess practice makes perfect!)

Step 3: Bake the pancakes on each side for about 30 sec until golden brown.

Step 4: …Use your favourite toppings! I do advice using at least some kind of sweetener (honey, sugar powder) since they’ll taste a lot better. (Greek) yoghurt is also a good option to combine them with.

…Enjoy!

Lots of love,
