Some time ago I introduced you the JusJus Soup Box. Homemade, fresh and vegan, delivered straight to your doorstep, or available at the JusJus shop in Antwerpen Zuid. Besides the creamy broccoli soup (read more about it here), the box contains this tasty carrot soup enriched with ginger and miso. Perfect to combine with the JusJus raw crackers, made from activated seeds and the pulp of their juices.

Happy 2017!

Fuji Instax Mini 70

Some time ago my friend Merel, from Told You So, sent me a message from Fuji Instax that I would definitely like! And so it was… Fuji Belgium was looking for an Instax Ambassador 2017! To compete for the title, every participant had to present a creative project using an Instax Mini 70. Hereby I present my project to organize your shoes in an original en stylish way.

When organizing your wardrobe and dressing room, we all have the same challenge. How to realize a clean and minimal look when all your shoe boxes have different shapes and colors? In order to create harmony, I started to collect a lot of uniform white boxes to keep my shoes in. Afterwards I made these cool instax pictures to label the boxes. To create a white background I used a large sheet of white paper. If you don’t have that at home, you can use the bathtub as well as a white infinite background!

Holiday season is finally here, and we are counting down the days until Christmas: picking out a Christmas tree, decorating the house, listening to Christmas music, strolling around the city for gift shopping and enjoying the Christmas lights. But most of all I like the greeting cards we all write to our loved ones with the warmest wishes! Can’t wait to open the mailbox and find the most beautiful cards in it.

Get ready for a healthier, happier, sexier breakfast! Grab a bowl, add a cold splash of yogurt and throw over the raw, superfood, nutty granola from JusJus. You have the choice between the nutty and the choco version (my personal favorite!), which contains activated raw almonds, perfectly mixed raw cacao with a lush date paste, lovingly blended with seeds and gojis, and lightly dusted with coconut flakes. Perfect to start your morning, or to supercharge your afternoon!

Matcha Latte

November 14, 2016

matcha-latte-01 matcha-latte-03-2matcha-latte-04 matcha-latte-05 matcha-latte-06-2matcha-latte-07 matcha-latte-08-2matcha-latte-09 matcha-latte-10 matcha-latte-11-2matcha-latte-12 matcha-latte-13

This trendy latte drink, based on matcha tea, is fascinating me for a while. The intense green matcha powder, used in Japanese tea ceremonies, is renowned for numerous health benefits. It’s rich in antioxidants, nutrients and chlorophyll. By adding hot milk, you will make the strong and intense matcha taste much more subtler, and meanwhile you get your daily dose of calcium.

Instructions

  • put 1 tsp matcha powder in a wide bowl
  • add hot water (not boiling, 80° is perfect)
  • use a bamboo whisk to stir it into a green foamy paste
  • pour it in a glass together with hot milk
  • add milk foam for the perfect topping

Enjoy!

Deze hippe latte drank, op basis van matcha thee, fascineert me al een tijdje. Het intense groene matcha poeder, dat wordt gebruikt in de Japanse theeceremonies, is gekend omwille van zijn vele gezonde eigenschappen. Het is rijk aan antioxidanten, nutriënten en chlorofyl. Het toevoegen van warme melk, maakt de sterke en intense smaak van de matcha veel subtieler, en zorgt meteen ook voor je dagelijkse dosis calcium.

Bereiding

  • doe een theelepel matcha poeder in kom
  • voeg heet water toe (niet kokend, 80° is perfect)
  • roer het geheel met een bamboo-garde tot een groene schuimende vloeistof 
  • giet het in een glas, samen met warme melk
  • voeg melkschuim toe voor de perfecte topping

Geniet ervan!
