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.
Autumn Curry Vegan

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

Vegan Dishes To Make This Autumn

Hello Autumn, hello comfort food. My favorite season is here. In order to make this season a little bit more sustainable, let’s use as much as possible fresh ingredients that come from the region. September, October, and November is the best season to eat pumpkin, squash, cabbage, sweet potatoes, carrots, and Brussel sprouts. Although tomatoes and cucumbers can still be grown in Dutch greenhouses in an energy-efficient manner, most greenhouse products are more polluting for the environment than vegetables and fruits that grow in the open air. The best and cheapest is to eat products that are grown on Dutch soil. Here are some easy recipes you can make this season:

Pumpkin soup with ginger

Pumpkin soup with ginger

Eating pumpkin is very healthy. Pumpkin is rich in fiber, potassium, and vitamin C. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.

All-natural Organic Deodorants I Tried

All my life, I’ve been using regular deodorant. I always switched between the one from Dove, Nivea and whatever sensitive brand I could find in the shop. I never thought bad of them, but I never read the ingredients… Last year I started to be more conscious about the products I put on my body and soon enough I learned about all the chemicals those brands use to stop making us smell bad. During my research, I learned that your perspiration itself is odorless. The bad smell is caused by bacteria. When you begin to sweat under your arms, your body has created the perfect place for bacteria to grow.

Normal deodorants contain alcohol and anti-microbial ingredients to reduce bacteria. They also contain perfume to mask the bad smell. Antiperspirants deodorants work by using a chemical, usually, a form of aluminum, to actually reduce the perspiration itself. The aluminum reacts with sweat to form a plug in the sweat glands. These plugs decrease wetness, and therefore, decrease the chance for the bacteria to grow. It is not really proven if these chemicals are bad for your health, but I don’t want to take the risk. Instead, I started researching about all natural, organic deodorants.

Organic deodorants are made with all natural, plant-based ingredients. They don’t contain aluminum, alcohol or artificial perfumes. There are no harsh chemicals that could potentially irritate sensitive skin and they won’t clog your pores.

Today I share the products that I have tried and the ones I still use:

Aromaco from Lush. This is a deodorant bar. It’s made with chamomile, patchouli, lemon, baking soda and witch hazel infusion. To use it you just gran the bar and rub it on your armpits. My experience with this one was not good. I guess it’s the smell of patchouli that my armpits didn’t like. It only worked the first weeks, but then I had to change it and use something different.

No sweat from The Ohm Collection. This is a powder deodorant made with certified organic ingredients and from natural essential oils. I tried the ‘coconut’ one. To use it, you put some powder on your fingertip and apply on your armpits. You don’t need much: a fingertip will do the job. My experience with this one was very good. I like the soft smell of coconuts. After some weeks, I could skip deodorant for one day and still didn’t have a bad smell.

Baking soda. This magic ingredient helps to absorb moisture from the skin, it absorbs sweat and reduces body odor. Plus, it kills bacteria! To apply this, there are a lot of methods, but I decided to use plane baking soda. It worked really good for me, but after a couple of weeks, the skin in my armpits started to get too dry. Next, I decided to stop using it every day, and instead using it once per week in combination with other deodorants.

Modern druids lemon squeezy. This one is a cream deodorant made with tapioca starch, coconut oil, shea fruit, baking soda, bergamot oil, lemon oil, and, limonene. To use it, you put some cream on your fingertip and apply it on your armpits. My experience with this one was positive as well. This is the deodorant that I currently still use. I like the citrus smell a lot. Since I started using natural deodorants, I have realized that I smell less and different than before.

With Love,
Alisson

5 ETHICAL, ECO & VEGAN SHOES FOR THE WINTER

Leather alternative quality shoes it is a relatively new product which makes it difficult to find in regular shops. Luckily I found the Dutch webshop “En-&“. The owner: Laura, started the webshop where she only sells eco and vegan shoes. For her, it’s important to wear fashionable shoes, that no animal was needed to be the harm in the process. If you are looking for a more sustainable pair of shoes, then En& is the place to be. After checking out their current collection, I listed out my favorite pairs for you:

1. Bline black or brown

Made from microfibers with a special “leather” look. The microfibers are made from a combination of nylon, cotton, and polyester. The material is OEKO-TEX certified which guarantees that the production don’t make any waste of water or energy. Microfibers are as tough as leather and less prejudicial to the environment.
Shop the boots here

2. Etna airbag white

Ecological, breathable and anti-allergy boots made of recycled airbag. The production comes with the intention of giving a new life to a material that is no longer useful, reusing the nylon present in the airbags and give them a new purpose.

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

Picture from Instagram by @semslaenmeer

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

Vegan pizza

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

What to order: The “Woodstock” burger wich is a vegan burger with quinoa as the main ingredient. Here is the thing: You have to order it without cheese and creme fraiche.
Address: Krankeledenstraat 18

4 Thai restaurant “Mi-Yao”

Mi-Yao Amersfoort

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”

Picture from FB @thestreetfoodbaramersfoort

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.

THIS IS WHERE I GET MY VEGAN RECIPES INSPIRATION FROM

Having a vegan lifestyle is one of the best decision I have made in my life. I eat now only fruit, nuts, grains and vegetables and feel so much healthier than before. This form of eating is relatively new for me, so I am always on the look for recipes to try out. I discovered a very simple way to find vegan meals via the page from the Albert Heijn supermarket. On the search field (on the left menu bar) you can just type in “zoek: veganistisch” and then you get a lot of ideas of what to cook. And what I love is that I am sure I will find the ingredients I need in the supermarket here in The Netherlands.

I have been using this page for a while now and I want to share with you some of my favorite recipes. They are all easy and quick to make and some of the recipes even have a video!

1. Guacamole

Easy Guacamole

Guacamole is the easiest and fastest recipe ever. All you need are tomatoes, onions (I prefer red ones), avocado, lemon juice and I like a little bit of coriander and cayenne pepper powder. Everyone has a different way of dong it but I like this recipe the most. To accompany it I use tortilla bread, chips, toast or I add it to salads and burgers.

2. Broccoli soup

Brocoli soup

Soup is my favorite way of eating my veggies. I normally make soup out of the veggies I find in my house. But my all-time-favorite is this Broccoli courgette soup. All you need is broccoli, courgette (with the skin), onion, garlic (It’s not in the recipe but It´s my personal add-on) and herbs broth.  I like to eat soup with bread or rice. Broccoli is a very good source of fiber, vitamin B1, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, zinc, calcium, iron among other nutrients our body needs. Zucchini is full of antioxidants and fiber. It is also a great source of potassium, vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, magnesium, omega-3, copper, and phosphorus.

3. Curry with Chickpeas

Vegan Curry

Curry with chickpeas, coconut milk, and rice. I LOOOOOOOVE curries. Green, yellow, red, massaman, you name it I just love it. This recipe I use as a guideline but I like to add all kind of veggies I find in my fridge. Chickpeas are my favorite source of protein. One cup of boiled chickpeas has 270 calories, 45 grams of carbs, 4 grams of fat, 15 grams of protein and 13 grams of fiber. It’s also a good source of a number of other minerals including magnesium, zinc, and copper, as well some other B-vitamins.

4. Summer salad with mango

Summer salad

On hot summer days, my body feels like eating cold recipes and this salad is my favorite. In the country where I come from, we eat mangos the same way Dutch people eat apples. When I tried this salad with mangos on it I found my go-to summer ingredient. The ingredients of this recipe are mango, avocado, red or yellow bell pepper, lemon juice, strawberries, coriander, and lettuce. I like to accompany this salad with falafel balls or any kind of beans burgers.

5. Potatoes and veggies in the oven

Potatoes from the oven

This recipe is super easy and a no-brainer. Literally just cut all the ingredients and spread them evenly on a large roasting pan and set them in the oven. I like to add a little bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, and fresh rosemary. This recipe suggests normal potatoes, but I prefer to use sweet potatoes and bell peppers mix. I also like to add onions, carrots, champignons, broccoli and all the veggies that I have at home and feel like eating.
Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin B6, vitamin C, D, iron, mag­nesium, potassium. Their rich orange color indicates that they are high in carotenoids like beta carotene and other carotenoids, which is the precursor to vitamin A in the body.

I hope you like this recipes and try them this summer.

MY FIRST WEEK HAVING A MINIMALIST WARDROBE

The project 333 is the minimalist fashion challenge that invites you to create, and live with a wardrobe of 33 items or less for 3 months. One week ago I started it and this is how my week looked like:

Friday 2nd of June

 


Saturday 3rd of June

 

 


Sunday 4th of June

 

 


Monday 5th of June

 

 

 

Tuesday 6th of June

 

 

 

Wednesday 7th of June

 

 


Thursday 8th of June

 

 

Learning points:
Don’t trust the weather. On Friday I went with a friend to an open air food festival. The weather was perfect. 27° and sunny. After the festival, we decided to go to a pub but before, we had to stop at my friend´s place and she lent me long pants because the temperature suddenly began to drop. I cheated a little bit, but that also reminded me to be prepared because here in The Netherlands the weather is very treacherous.

Good quality jeans are a must. The black jeans I have been using for the past week, are from a fast fashion brand and the quality is not the best. I have used it 4 days in the past week and I can see now that they won´t make it alive this tree months. I will eventually need to replace them. An update on this will follow.

Better care for your clothes. Now that I have fewer clothes, I feel more responsible for taking care of them. I am not washing the “dirty” clothes as much as I used to. Every time I get the chance, I hang the used clothes in the fresh air and when I have them back they smell fresh and I can use them again.

Next week more updates,

With love,

LEATHER ALTERNATIVE​ FABRICS THAT SHOULD TAKE OVER THE FASHION WORLD

While most people associate leather with cows, the reality is that many different animals such as pigs, goats, sheep, crocodiles, snakes, emus, deer, fish, kangaroos, horses, cats and dogs are killed to make leather. Most of the leather comes from India and China where environmentally and healthy regulations are very poor. Once an animal’s skin is removed, it is preserved through a process called tanning which uses strong chemicals to prevent the skin from decomposing, this process is toxic to both the environment and the people. The more I research about this, the more I get encouraged to not support the leather industry but I found it very hard to find nice looking fake leather jacket, bag or shoes that are made from a sustainable material rather than a synthetic one. The good news is that there are some alternative fabrics to leather that will take over soon! (Hopefully) I have listed out my research for you to check it:

1. Cork leather
Is the most common leather alternative. Cork is obtained from the outer layer of the bark of the Cork Oak tree, a native tree found in Portugal. Its removal does not harm the tree and it will grow a new layer to replace the harvested cork making it a renewable and sustainable resource. In the past cork has commonly been used in the heels of shoes but now a very thin piece of cork also known as cork leather or cork fabric is also used as a natural and eco-friendly alternative to leather. It is hard wearing and durable.

Ono leather althernative

Brands that use cork leather so far are ONO, the Dutch designer Anna Treurniet and the German designer Ina Koelln.

2. Pineapple leather
This is a natural and sustainable textile made from the leaves of pineapples, which are the waste from the pineapple harvest. The leaves are the by-product of an existing industry, this means no additional land, water, fertilizers or pesticides need to be used to produce them. The raw material has a low environmental impact and is completely biodegradable.

Pineapple leather
Brands that use pineapple leather so far are Maravillas Bags, Time IV Change, Bourgeois Boheme, Chala Sandals, HentiesNae Shoes and Ina Koelln.

3. Recycled rubber
The rubber that used in inner tubes of tires, has a leathery texture and density, making it the perfect material for bags. This material is 100% recycled, the varied texture of the rubber gives each item a distinctive character and, although reused, the material remains extremely hardwearing.

Recycled rubber
A brand that recycles rubber is the English brand Paguro.  They make unisex bags and jewelry from this material.

4. Mushroom leather
This latest innovation leather comes from fungus spores that are grown into a close, woven pattern. It is processed in a manner similar to that of animal leathers. However, the tanning procedure is completely natural. It takes place without using toxic chemicals. Laboratory tests show that this kind of mushroom ‘skin’ is a hygienic material: it stops the proliferation of bacteria. It also has a strong absorbent capacity. Moisture is taken into the material and slowly released. These two factors are of use in a number of applications, such as shoe insoles, watch straps and so on. Muskin is also breathable. With its very soft suede or leather feel and surprising qualities, Muskin is a material that demands a closer look.

Mushroom leather
I couldn’t find a brand that uses this material, but I won´t be surprised to see it in a near future. Please let me know in the comments below if you do know of a brand that sells products from this revolutionary material.

Is there a material I am missing? Let me know in the comments below 🙂

THE TRUTH ABOUT NAIL POLISH

Let´s be honest, do you read the ingredients of the cosmetics you use? And do you know what are those ingredients? Well, I never cared. Why would I? I grew up using creams, shampoos, make-up and my favorite: nail polish. I was never aware of the ingredients until I started to walk this conscious path of mine. I do my best to stay away from animal products in my food, and now I am doing the same to stay away from cosmetics that have animal ingredients in it or has  been tested on animals. One day, out of curiosity, I took a nail polish bottle and I was surprised that I actually did not know any of these ingredients. While doing research I found out that some of the bottles containes toxic ingredients like:

-Toluene: a solvent, degreases the skin and may lead to inflammation.
-Dibutyl phthalate and triphenyl phosphate (TPHP): a plasticizer.
-Formaldehyde- resin: a colorless, flammable, strong-smelling chemical that is used in building materials and to produce many household products.
-Colophonium: a sticky flammable substance.
-Paraben: a chemical preservatives. It´s not proven to be bad, but also not proven to be totally ok to use it on a regular basis.
-Xylol: a solvent. May be a health hazard when absorbed through the skin and the respiratory tract.
-Acetone: a chemical solvent.
-Silicone: Recognize by the names that end in -cone or -siloxane.

Besides, some of the bottles contains animal-derived ingredients. Why on earth would there be animal-derived substances in your nail polish?! Still, I´m in shock. Animal-derived ingredients that can be found in nail polish are:

-Guanine: It might be listed as ‘pearl essence’. But guanine is derived from fish scales and acids that are located in animal tissue. You’re most likely to find it in products that have a shimmery, pearly effect. Or in glitter polish colors.
-Carmine: Red hues of nail polish are a warning sign, they often contain carmine. By boiling and crushing beetles, the red color is created and that’s what gives the color.
-Oleic Acid: Comes from the hard fat found at the animal’s kidneys, stomach, and other organs. In cosmetics, oleic acid can be used to thicken a solution.

One of my new goals is to find as much as possible animal-friendly products and add them to my daily basis. While searching for a vegan and non-toxic brand,  I found the German brand OZN. They are an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional nail polishes.

animal friendly nail polish

The nail polish looks just like a regular one. Though the smell is less strong and the covering is as good as a normal one. The paint dries very fast. When I used the color pink, I needed two coats, whereas the color red and black only needed one. The biggest surprise for me was the nail polish remover. It is odorless! And after I used it I felt my nails rather soft and oily than dry.

 

 

 

OZN Colors
Look at all these colors!

 

As you see above, OZN has a wide color palette. A bottle costs 14,90€.
You can shop them online HERE or at The Beauty Editor in Amsterdam at the Eerste Van der Helstraat 1 A25

Veganistisch nailpolish
Hello, non-toxic nail polish. You are here to stay 🙂

I hope you enjoy this post and please let me know in the comments below if you know of any other vegan, cruelty-free and less toxic nail polish brands.
