This weekend we went out for dinner so celebrate us moving in together, most of the stuff is done so we wanted to celebrate. So we went out for dinner at a ‘fancy’ restaurant in Breda. Well, that was a disappointment. Although we told them I was a vegan upfront, it didn’t seem like they actually put in the effort to create a well-balanced nutritious meal for me. By the end of the evening I thought: I could use a sandwich…

And I’m not a person who eats large portions.

SO yeah, you know what.. that made me realise how much I love vegan cooking. Vegan cooking isn’t about just eating a salad or eating processed meatreplacements. It’s about the kind of food I’m posting a lot. Food that can be enjoyed by everyone and you don’t get too much processed food. So, yay me!!
