Welcome to my cozy corner! This site is all about good eating and good living. You will find inspiration for tasty food, self-care and relaxed parenting.
My healthy eating recipes are either a healthy tweak on a naughty-but-nice meal favorite or my own ideas for nutricious food.

Healthy living is about body AND soul and therefore we should treat ourselves sometimes. Since life is more than just good food, this site also aims to give you hands-on inspiration on how to handle living with your tiny tribe (aka being a parent) and DIY wellbeing tips for a happier and healthier you.
