Some nice things | List

Since I don’t have the inspiration to write about anything, I want to simply share some things. I will refer to posts, and most will be quite old. But still lovely as always <3

Recipes I tried and loved

Broccoli soup

I found this recipe trough pinterest, and since I have made it so many times. I never knew that lemon tasted so good with broccoli. Also by putting the broccoli in the oven, it gets a super flavor. The ginger I left out, since neither I nor my dad likes it, sorry mom. The toppings are optional, and I leave them out if I don’t have the ingredients at hand. Seriously guys, you HAVE to try this!

Get out of that comfort zone!

They say that life begins outside of your comfort zone. I’m not sure if it’s the full truth but it makes your life way more interesting and adventurous. It helps to grow and to experience new things that you would never have imagined you could.

Honestly, it’s like a boost in your self-esteem as well. Not so long ago I shared some new goals I wanted to work on. Not knowing that I would start so soon in realizing those goals. Last week I went to the blood bank. I get anxious from hospitals and blood. Donating half a liter scares the shit out of me. But okay, everyone told me it would be okay, it’s just the test so you only need to donate a little (4 tubes). So I brought my sister as my (mental)support and before I knew it I was in a room where a lady poked my finger and checked my pulse. Luckily, she just went for it and poked me, before I had the chance to think about it. Good news was that I could get my blood tested, bad news, I had low iron in my blood, so before being able to donate half a liter, I need to get my iron high enough. Next step, enter a room where people are donating blood as if it is just a regular thing to do. Seeing the people with their bag of blood and tubes filled with blood made me feel quite unpleasant.

Vegan 101

If you’re planning on eating full plant-based things can get overwhelming quite fast. You find yourself reading loads of ingredient lists and googling for vegan places nearby. Trying to figure out what is vegan and how to adapt your dairy containing recipes to vegan recipes. Yes! It can be fun and exploratory. However, it can be hard as well.

I have become a vegan since the beginning of this year, but about 2 or 3 years ago I developed an interest in veganism. I have found loads of interesting helpful tools that made my slow transition easier and fun. It turned out to be quite long. You can always bookmark the page and read each section separately in order to not get overwhelmed by the information.

What really helps me stay motivated and inspired

Sometimes there are just days that I’m frustrated. Things don’t go as planned and everything just seems to go wrong. And even when things go just as you like, you still feel annoyed and bothered. Grumpy bad days. It’s totally normal to have them. But lets be honest, totally not fun.

It’s the end of January and most of us are starting to forget our new years resolutions. Please say I am not the only one. There is this really fun thing to do, that really helps clear the mind. It makes you think about what is important and what you really want in life. So I really like to write things down, but if you don’t like that so much you can also practice it by simply thinking. Writing it is a bit more helpful for when you’re not feeling to well to just read trough it. And when you write it down it is also on paper and it makes it more real. So I would definitely recommend writing it down!

My journey to zero waste

Hi everyone. Today I want to talk about going zero waste and I want to take you along with my journey. I love watching zero waste videos on YouTube, especially as it really motivates myself and inspires me to produce less waste. There are multiple things that I already do to reduce the amount of waste that I produce, and there are some things that I am ready to introduce to my lifestyle. I am a total beginner when I comes to zero waste, so if you have any remarks or tips, please let me know!
