Follow Them Friday: De Groene Prinses

Our 73rd “Follow them Friday” features Reine from de groene prinses who blogs in Dutch.

When did you start blogging?

In april 2010, because I wanted to answer the question that a lot of people had been asking since I ‘d become a vegetarian: ‘So you are a vegetarian? What do you eat?!’


How did you decide on the name of your blog?

The name just popped up in my head and it seemed perfect to me. After all I wanted to be a ‘kitchen princess’ with a ‘green’ twist to it.

What was the title of your first ever blog post?

‘Havercake met frambozen en een kruimellaagje’: a cake with oats and raspberries. If I would make him today, I would probably try to swap the sugar and butter for more healthy alternatives.


Do you prefer eating in or eating out?

I really can’t choose, because I love both. In Antwerp it’s not very easy to find good vegetarian food, so here I prefer my own cooked food, I guess. But when we are abroad, I simply love discovering new vegetarian restaurants.

What is your favourite dish to share?

Some very good hummus, a few colourful salads and a hunk of fresh baked bread.

What is your favourite comfort food?

I’m a bit of a pasta addict. And I can’t live without dark chocolate (at least 70%).

What is your favourite dessert?

I try to reduce the amount of sugar I eat, but every now and then I indulge in sumptuous desserts. Chocolate moelleux paired with blood orange sorbet is heaven to me!

How do you spend your time when you’re not blogging?

I’m a writer of children’s books and poetry. So even when I’m not blogging, I’m still writing. In my free time I love to travel, cook, read and listen to music.


Who are your favourite food bloggers?,,,

Who are your favourite non-food bloggers?

Actually I don’t follow a lot of non-food blogs, although I have one myself: 😉
