“Red beets with tuna are perfect for the quick healthy fix. The ingredients are easy to stock. This way you’re always prepared to fix yourself an energy booster during a mid-day slump.”

Serves 1

  • ½ pack of pre-cooked beets (250 g)
  • little can of tuna in olive oil (60-80 g), or half a bigger can (pay attention to the MSC certification which indicates the fish was caught in a sustainable way)
  • salt (preferably Himalaya or Keltic salt) and pepper
  • (+) some pumpkin seeds for more ‘bite’

Chop the red beets in small blocks. Mix the beets with the tuna in a bowl and stir. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the pumpkin seeds.



“Two ingredients every healthy foodie has in its fridge. So easy!”

Serves 1

  • ½ avocado
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper (to season)

Boil the eggs approximately 5-6 minutes (soft). Mash the avocado with the eggs. Softer eggs make the mash more creamy. For a ‘harder’ consistence, boil the eggs longer. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Extra Tip: Cut some raw veggies (cucumber, selery, radish) and use the avocado-egg mix as dip.



“This one is especially for the chocolate addict and sweet tooth! Because of the nuts and dates this ‘brownie’ is pretty dense and will definitely satisfy your hunger.”

Serves 8

  • 150 g mixed nuts (e.g. unsalted & untoasted walnuts, almonds, brasil nuts)
  • 45 g grated coconut (+ some extra for decoration)
  • 150 g pitted dates
  • 40 g raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • pinch of salt
  • sprinkle of water (as much as needed but don’t make the mixture to thick!)
  • content of 1 vanilla stick (optional)

Mix all ingredients with a food processor. Press the mixture in a squared tray. Leave 30 minutes in the fridge to harden. Cut in little pieces.
