The Start Of Our Community Vegetable Garden

July 10, 2020

I’m so excited to tell you about this project – we have started a community vegetable garden! For years, I’ve been wanting to grow more of my own food. There were years where my little balcony was overgrown with huge heirloom tomato plants and beans – it was a challenge to find a spot to sit down! But surely, my long awaited dream of having an allotment space to grow vegetables, fruit & cut flowers is coming into reality and probably better than I could’ve asked for – in this post I’ll tell you all about it & how we’re getting started!

Koopeenkoe.nl Review

April 24, 2020

When I got asked to test and review one of koopeenkoe.nl’s meat boxes, I was totally up for it! Ever since we went vegan for a month, we decided to incorporate meat back into our diet, but only about once a week and from a good source. But how do you really know where the (organic) meat in the supermarket or butcher comes from? Koopeenkoe.nl offers traceable, local and organic meat boxes, delivered to your door. That sounds like the perfect fit for our lifestyle, so I was excited to try this out. In this post I’ll be sharing with you how it works and my experience + honest koopeenkoe.nl review too!

Five Dishwashing Swaps to Reduce Waste

January 31, 2020

We have a pretty good deal in our house. I love cooking, and I take care of our meals pretty much every day. My husband loves being left in the kitchen afterwards – doing the dishes, putting things away and leaving the kitchen ready for a new day. I would say I’ve got the better end of this deal, yet my husband would claim the same. That’s what I call a win-win!

Review: Koopeenkalkoen.nl (+ discount code)

November 8, 2019

I got to try out a koopeenkalkoen.nl turkey and in this post I’ll tell you all about it: how it works & my honest review. Plus I got a fun GIVEAWAY in store to bring Christmas a little early for one of you!

Crowdbutching

Koopeenkalkoen.nl is part of Crowdbutching. I’ve known Crowdbutching for a couple of years now and I really love their concept. You basically get to buy a welfare animal together with other people – when the whole animal is sold, it’s butchered, portioned and delivered fresh to your door. They want to make the meat sector more transparent, healthy & sustainable. Beautiful hey? It really makes it easy for anyone who wants to eat better quality and traceable meat from animals that have been well looked after. They are currently operating in The Netherlands (koopeenkoe.nl), Germany (kaufnekuh.de) and the UK (buyacow.uk).

Well, this year they partnered up with boer Anton Jacobs to raise well fare turkeys right here in the Netherlands! When I got asked by koopeenkalkoen.nl to review one of their stuffed turkeys, I was obviously in 🙂
