Our 75th “Follow them Friday” features Carolien from On a Healthy Adventure who blogs in Dutch.
When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in April 2015.
How did you decide on the name of your blog?
After months of brainstorming about a blog name I finally decided on ‘On a Healthy Adventure’. It stands for what I want to tell through my blog: a healthy life style is an adventure with ups and downs, but also with lots of experiences from which you’ll learn and grow.
What was the title of your first ever blog post?
My first blog post was a simple ‘Hello’ to introduce myself and my blog. The first real blog post was a recipe for a spring inspired smoothie.
What is your favourite dessert?
That’s New York style cheesecake. I love it! When I was on holiday in America Junior’s and the Cheesecake Factory were heaven for me
How do you like your eggs in the morning?
I like my eggs scrambled.
Was there a particular dish that got you into cooking?
No, it was mostly because of my nutrition and dietetics studies that I started cooking so I could make healthier dishes for myself.
What are the three things you always have in your freezer?
Homemade soup, leftover vegetables and pieces of fruit. I love homemade soup. I always make too much, so I can store some of it in the freezer. I also freeze leftover vegetables, either for a next dish or soup. When I can’t eat all the fruit I bought, I cut it into pieces and freeze it to make smoothies with it.
How do you spend your time when you’re not blogging?
Besides blogging I like to work out, go to the cinema and to concerts
