Cook Healthy And Easy With The Veganbox.nl

Everyone knows about Hello Fresh and Marley Spoon. A weekly box with recipes and the exact amount of ingredients you need. The vegan box has the same principle but they only make plant-based recipes.

This box is ideal for busy people who want to eat healthier and more plant-based, but do not have the time to find it all out for themselves. With the box in the house, you can immediately go into the kitchen and follow the recipes. Most of the recipes take between 30 and 40 minutes.

Last week I received my first box and I was positively surprised. The box arrived on a Tuesday night. That same day I received a message from PostNL with the time of delivery within a time window of one hour. In case you are not home, you can ask the postman to leave the box at one of your neighbors or even under the chair of the front garden.

Quickly I unpacked the bags and everything looked neat and fresh. The box contained three vegan recipes with the exact amount of ingredients for two people. Most of them were organic. And what I liked a lot, is that most ingredients are wrapped in paper. My box only had a few ingredients wrapped in plastic.veganbox.nl

From the recipes, I started with the gyros from the brand Vleesch Noch Visch. Normally, I don’t eat much meat replacements. But this gyros I will definitely like to eat again. The tzatziki made the dish very tasty. This recipe was the easiest of the box to make.Vegan gyros Vlesch noch Visch The next recipe was a yellow curry with crispy cauliflower. Curries are one of my favorite dishes. With this recipe, I learned how to make it different from how I normally cook it. The crispy cauliflower was a nice touch. I will use it for wraps or tacos as well.

The last recipe of the box was the one I was, in the first place, the less enthusiastic about. But this one surprised me the most: Pearl couscous with roasted pumpkin and cranberries. This was absolutely my personal favorite of the box. I never tasted a dish like this before.Pearl couscous with pum

The vegan box is a great initiative to help people that want to start with a vegan lifestyle but don’t know how. The meals are well balanced with grains, protein, and vegetables. I hope you get inspired and give a try to the vegan box. For more information check https://veganbox.nl

TOP 5 VEGAN RESTAURANTS IN AMERSFOORT

Well, let´s be honest, been vegan in Amersfoort is rather an exotic out-of-this-world kind of thing. On this blog post, I am talking about normal restaurants where, as a vegan, you can find some dishes to eat. Besides the yoga studio/cafe Bindi* there is no 100% vegan or vegetarian restaurant in the city in Amersfoort.  Don´t let this stop you from having a nice dinner on the weekend because I have found some vegan-friendly places for you. These are my top 5 favorites:

1. SEM sla en meer

What to order: Create your own bowl of salad. You can choose from these ingredients as the basis: mesclun, spinach or arugula. For the filling, you can choose one of these: quinoa, bean mix, lime beans, and cauliflower rice. For the veggies, you may choose up to three of these: zucchini, sun-dried tomato, cherry tomato, broccoli, radish, cucumber, corn, white cabbage, sugar snaps and red bell pepper. Additionally, you can add vegan chicken! They sell the one from the “vegetarische slager”. All the dressings they use are vegan. My personal favorite is the one with soy sauce, ginger and sesame oil.
Address: Kortegracht 6

2. Italian Restaurant Lorenza

What to order: As a started the baked champignons with garlic and white wine and as the main course the vegetarian pizza without the cheese but with arugula instead. The pizza has artichoke, capers, bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, and garlic. You can order any vegetarian pizza without the cheese, but this one is the one I like the most.
Address: Lieve Vrouwestraat 14

3. Charlie’s Burger33

Address: Krankeledenstraat 18

4 Thai restaurant “Mi-Yao”

What to order: As a starter the deep-fried spring rolls. They are filled with cabbage, carrot, garlic, glass noodles and soy sauce. As the main course, you can order the green curry and the tomato salad. Make sure to order the curry without fishsauce. The portion of rice is very small so I recommend you to order an extra portion right away :). As a desert, you can order Thailand’s favorite: sticky rice with mango.
Address: Krommestraat 41

4. Thai restaurant “The street food bar”

What to order: Noodles with veggies, noodle soup with veggies or the fried veggies with rice.
Address: Arnhemsestraat 26a

* I didn´t count Bindi because they don´t open during the weekend and this list is meant for the weekend.
