Bezig zijn, bezig blijven en meer moeten hebben om aan te haken in de maatschappelijke race. Waarom willen we dit toch zo graag? Het is ‘Suiker’ die...

Hoe weten we nou wat “goed” voor ons is en wat niet? Wat maakt voeding “gezond”? In de wereld van “gezonde” voeding zijn er duizenden diëten en allemaal zeggen ze wat anders!?   Voeding is een onmisbare...

Me on Mono-diet (1)

It’s the 5th day, another 35 to go! With a strong curiosity I commited myself to the Kitchery Mono-diet for 40 days. Wahey!
