Hi! My name is Elise. I live in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. English is not my native language so bear with me for the awkward writing style!
I first started this blog because it sounded like a good idea to tackle several things at once: do something creative while keeping track of my weird-looking cooking experiments, stay motivated at the gym and improve my English.
I enjoy eating (a lot), working-out at the gym, and living an active lifestyle. I am not a vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free or paleo eater. I’m a “flexitarian”: an omnivore who’s just looking for balance in her overall diet.
The only food that I really don’t tolerate is sugar: I have a big sweet tooth, but sugar basically makes me feel horrible in the long run (addictive effect, mood swings etc.) So I decided to focus this blog on healthier desserts and treats.
