Sautéed leek and onion hash

As today is a public holiday in Belgium, I’m taking some time to tidy the cupboards and prepare some of the fruits and veggies I purchased this week. This bowl of green is, in my humble opinion, SUPER delicious and easy to make. Chop/process 1-large onion, 1-leek, 3-cloves of garlic, and throw it in a…

Superfood smoothie

With a hint of spring here and there, I’m ready to embrace #smoothieseason 2018! When I make a smoothie, I prefer it to have a fro-yo consistency and to eat it with a spoon rather than drink it as one would a juice. To accomplish that goal, I find it’s best to set out all…
