What has Death got to do with Creativity and Fertility?

This was a question I received from one of the participants in my online course “Regenerative Chakra Nutrition” (new edition starting soon!). When talking about the second chakra, I pointed out how creativity, fertility, menstruation, emotions, sensuality, sexuality and our ability to let “die” are all related. Everything in this world moves through cycles of […]

The Fragility of our Food System

Ever since the Corona crisis started, it clearly brought to the light how fragile our food system is. The supply of fresh food suffered from restrictions on (international) transport and on labor in the fields to pick and process the produce. This was especially true for big producer countries such as China or India, but […]

Sleeping in the arms of safety

One of the side effects of the Corona crisis are new sleeping disorders. This does not come as a surprise, considering that the foundation for good sleep is feeling SAFE. Our physical, material and emotional safety belong to our first chakra, just like our primal need for sleep and food. What affects one, affects the […]

The first thing that caught my eye was the line-up of Alpro products on the information table: different sorts of vegetable drinks (from […]

What is the healthiest and most sustainable fish to eat in Belgium?

Fish is a great source for easy-to-digest proteins, healthy fats (more or less fat depending on the type of fish) and key nutrients such as iodine, zinc and selenium (which are all crucial for the thyroid). When it comes to fish, we have to select smartly though, because of potential heavy-metal contamination and of course, […]

Plant proteins and potential health problems

With all those scandals about factory-farmed meat and all this talk about how unsustainable and unhealthy it is to eat (too much) meat, many people are reducing the amount of animal foods they consume and are looking for plant-based alternatives to cover their bodies’ need for proteins. In this article I don’t want to discuss […]

A true alternative to glyphosate exists

An alternative to glyphosate already exists! It is called (local, small-scale) organic agriculture! Honestly, I don`t get the current outcry about the prolongation of the glyphosate license. Or better said, I only get it partially. Of course I understand that people are annoyed with politics succumbing to the influence of big lobbies and putting profit […]
