TRUST > I don’t know if you heard the story about the activists that went into a pig farm in Boxtel (the Netherlands) and who discovered a horrible situation for many beautiful pigs. 😔 The footage they have collected is truly heartbreaking.. I’ve seen many things when it comes to animal abuse and exploitation and they are all devastating, but the images of these innocent pigs really got to me like crazy. 😔😢 Maybe it’s because it was from the Netherlands (I’m Dutch), maybe it’s because they’re pigs, maybe it’s because the way the activists were treated during and after, maybe it was because of the many stories I hear of people who are also devastated and outraged.. not for the pigs, but for the farmers!! 😲 The articles I read and the comments I looked up, they are unbelievable! Reading them feels surreal.. how can people choose the farmers side after all this footage?! HOW? 😳🙄 Animals trust us and we betray them.. sometimes we have to gain their trust again, like with these lovely sheep! They are so beautiful and pure.. thinking of the people that are convinced that the farmers are the ones being mistreated, I stand with the animals.. you can’t trust people! 🙁 I want to thank @seb.alex and allllll the other brave activists that showed that there are some people you can trust! ♥️✨ You keep hope alive and you all did an amazing job and I’m so grateful for people like you all! #meatthevictims #boxtel #pigsofinstagram #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
I sometimes get messages with ‘I don’t want to look at some of the pictures you post’ (pictures about the food industry and animal welfare!).. 🤷🏼‍♀️ People don’t want to be confronted with the truth. Those same people keep eating animals and eggs and keep consuming dairy. 🤔🙁 They don’t want to see it, because it makes them feel bad and sad. If that is the case, isn’t it time to change what you eat instead of choosing to be ignorant?! 😌 Are you one of those people? Then please think about this concept. Send me a message if you have questions and/or want any help by choosing the right thing! ♥️♥️ I’m always here to help! #meat #cheese #eggs #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
Last Friday I pretended to be on an aeroplane to the Netherlands (I’m sorry about lying to you all in my IGS). I was actually on a boat whilst I posted all those lies.. 🙈 I did have a good reason to do so, because I was trying to surprise my mum (and dad). ☺️♥️ It’s super hard, because she always knows I am. So to make it more believable I posted as if I was traveling by plane. ✈️ She thought she needed to pick me up from the train station in the middle of the night, but I arrived by car around 20:30 instead. 🚙✨ Surprise!!! It worked! She really thought I was in the air by the time I opened her door.. it was soooo fun! 💖 Surprise 1 was completed! Atm I’m in France with the whole family (there are 10 of us in total) to celebrate her 50th bday and I’ve got many surprises for her.. because it’ll make it a bday to remember! ♥️♥️ And a bonus: I’ve got lots of time to cuddle my nephews and my niece! #france #surprise #family #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
HOLIDAY > Only 2 more days of work and then on Friday I will go to the Netherlands! What means I will be there on KingsDay! 🦁🇳🇱 On Sunday my family and I will all drive to France to celebrate my mum’s 50th birthday over there in a lovely house. We will stay there for almost a week. So exciting!! 😍 When we come back, I’ll visit friends, relax and prepare my mum’s bday party, which is on the 10th.. all exciting things to come! 😇✨ I’m so looking forward to it, although I will miss my babies @nolaonvoyage and @luckyoliverpig a lot! 🙁 Because 2,5 week is longgggg.. #holiday #netherlands #kingsday #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
BRISTOL > If you followed my IGS over the last few days, then you know I was visiting Bristol this sunny Easter weekend! 🐰☀️ What a lovely city, with lots of good vegan food! The cafe I enjoyed most of all was definitely @eastvillagebristol where I had this delicious açai bowl! Doesn’t it look stunning? 😍 I’m working on a blogpost where I will tell you all about the hotspots I discovered! 💖✨ What were you up to this Easter? #easterweekend #bristol #citytrip #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
EASTER WEEKEND > What a sunny day it was today! ☀️ And it will stay like this the whole weekend, so perfect for Easter!! 😍✨ What are you up to this weekend? Are you planning a brunch or are you going away on a little outing? Check my blog for some nice Easter recipe inspiration! 🐰 I’m thinking about driving to Bristol tomorrow for a little vanlife adventure! 🚐😇 I’ll be on the look out for some nice vegan hotspot of course. Any recommendations?! 🌱 I want to wish you a lovely sunny Easter! 😘♥️ Just remember not to participate in any egg, bunny or lamb eating. There is nothing nice about that.. be a full time animal lover! #easter #easterrecipes #endspeciesism #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
SNOW > Last Sunday I came back from a 10 day work holiday in (Ober)Lech. ❄️ I hate the snow and so I wasn’t looking forward to it a lot. But I packed my suitcase, most of it were vegan goodies, as 1 of the things is that in places like that, there isn’t a lot of choice when it comes to vegan food (and I don’t only want to survive on lettuce and chips). 🌱😐 But boy I was wrong this time! The hotel offered lots of vegan food!! The breakfast bar was something I haven’t seen before (5 types of pb milk, soy yogurt,a make your own muesli bar and the most delicious fruit), at lunchtime I could choose from several dishes on the menu and the salad bar was justtttt 😍!! This made my day every day. In the little supermarket in Lech, they sold vegan cheese and the newest flavour from @benandjerrys as well. I was flabbergasted. The world is changing!! 🎉 The temperatures were doable, the views amazing and the hotel I was sleeping in myself was lovely. 😇✨ Overall, it wasn’t that bad and I actually had enjoyable moments! The snow still wouldn’t be my first choice of holiday (not even my last, cuz personally I wouldn’t choose it at all), but I’m happy that I went! 🙂 Do you like snow holidays or do you prefer the sun like me? #snow #wintersport #austria #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
BOREDOM > You’ll basically never hear me say ‘I’m bored’, because I’m never bored. 😇 I always have something to do and whenever I’m in a situation where I can’t do anything, I always have something to think about. I come up with new ideas and work them out in my head. I’ve got a very exciting mind.. ☺️✨ Hehe.. and those ideas especially come when it’s nighttime. When everything is quiet and calm.. when it’s all dark and everyone is sleeping. 😴 Then my brain goes crazy and I come up with the best things.. I love that time and I love how I can always occupy myself. 😌✌🏼 Are you ever bored? And what time of the day is your brain most active? #bored #wisewords #ideas #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
EASTER > It’s almost Easterrrr! 🐣 That means Easter brunches.. are you going to make something special this year? 💖🐰 I created this lovely recipe, just to make your toast a little bit more special! ✨ They’re fun to make (esp with kids!) and will look so nice on your brunch table! ☕️🥐 Find the recipe ‘Shape It’ on my blog now (link in bio)! #easter #easterrecipes #brunch #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
TIMING > It doesn’t matter if good, bad or sad things are happening, because timing is always right. 😌 Things are meant to be, to teach you, to help you see things and to help you grow in life.. 💖✨ Let your emotions flow, but trust in timing. Things are always meant to be. 😇 Love and live your life, truly, honest and fully! #meanttobe #wisewords #trust #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
0WASTE > Something small you can do against food waste is to always collect the single bananas. 🍌 So don’t just get a bunch, but collect only the single ones. Those are the ones that end up in the bin most often. 😐🙁 It’s such an easy thing to do and no trouble at all. For more tips and easy swaps, go to my blog (link in bio) to read all the 0waste articles. 😃 Do you have a good tip as well?!

EARTH HOUR > Some say ‘I won’t do Earth hour, because it doesn’t make a difference’, ‘I won’t do Earth hour, because it should be earth hour every hour’. 🌎 I agree with both, but I still do Earth hour. It’s true, switching your lights off for 1 hour a year won’t make a huge difference and YES it should be Earth hour every hour. 😌✌🏼 But this hour also spreads awareness. It makes people think. Lots of people mention it, it’s on the news, in the newspapers and all over social media. There is the hashtag #earthhour and people encourage each other to participate. ✨ And now that everybody feels like doing something good for the Earth.. let’s really do something. Don’t just switch off your light this hour, but actively do something to make the world a better place and to heal planet earth. 🌎♥️ Eat (more) plant based, live a (more) zero waste and plastic free lifestyle. Think of ways where you can be more sustainable in your every day life. Did you eat a totally plant based meal today? Did you bring your own cup to the coffee shop and/or your own bags when you got your groceries? 🛒 There are lots of articles on my blog that will help you to save this planet. Things that you can easily do, for this planet to have a future. We need to do something and we need to act now. Tomorrow might already be too late. 🙁✌🏼 Be the change!! #earthhour2019 #bethechange #healthyliving #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyeating #goals #veganblog #vegan #vegetarian #happiness #fitgirl #whatveganseat #plantbased #lifestyle #love #loveit #veganfoodshare #selfie #nature #food #foodie #live #life #health #healthy #fit #inspiration #motivation
