Behind the Blog

Hi, I’m Renee

I’m a mom of two boys, Oskar and Simon, pregnant with our third child, and married to Tom. We live in the southernmost tip of the Netherlands.

When I was pregnant with Oskar I became more and more aware of my lifestyle. I wanted to learn how to cook healthier without cooking out of a box, with ingredients that are not full of chemicals and preferably bought locally.

Because I think that several people are looking for a lifestyle that fits this narrative, I started this blog and I want to invite you to go on a journey with me. I want to learn how to start living from scratch, I hope to become more independent and of course healthier!
