 Healthy food happy people - Chantal Voets

Hello, nice of you to come and take glance at my recipe review. Here, I have made a fine selection of recipes and chefs. Amanprana and/or I has/have a special bond with each of them. We, for example, have cooked together and have the same vision of eating. Healthy, tasty and refreshing meals without fuss. Tasty meals to be healthy and happy. Ayurvedic cuisine, macrobiotics, raw food, vegan cooking and proper food combinations have inspired my recipes.

In the meantime, I have put together quite a few recipes. From appetizers to pancakes and from delicious snacks to smoothies. The emphasis is on pure and natural, without refined nutrients. Nutrition is your best medicine!

Healthy dinner party recipes for every special occasion

Healthy dinner party recipes for every special occasion

Dinner party menus are built around the main course. The main course is after all called “main course” for a reason. But in most European families, the main course of a dinner party menu almost always revolves around meat. Take the traditional Christmas menu, for instance. The turkey or the ham is more often than not the centrepiece, and understandable so.

Even vegetarians admit that such a dinner party menu is to be expected. Feasts such as Christmas are cultural traditions that come with certain customs, and people don’t like to let go of those, even when it means hanging on to “bad” habits. But if you know that the meat that is served at a dinner party can be more damaging than helpful to your body, you would do well to take the time to look at Amanprana’s vegetarian festive recipes.


A Christmas menu without meat, but with seitan!

It’s a paradox, really. During the holidays or on special occasions, you need a lot of energy to socialize. You are surrounded by family and friends, you spend hours at the dinner table, eating and talking, and when the opportunity presents itself, you also spend some time on the dance floor. All in all, you deviate from your daily life pattern whenever there is a party, and that takes a huge amount of energy. So, just when you need more energy, abundant dinner party recipes are made, forcing you to put all of your energy into the digestion of food, which should, in fact, be providing you with energy! There is your paradox!

Think of all those animal (by)products that are incorporated into cheesy snacks, creamy soups, and meaty dishes ... According to Amanprana there are other ways to celebrate. A dinner party menu can be both delicious and nutritious, leaving you with a light feeling in your stomach at the end of the day.

Chantal Voets’ festive soups, such as the sweet potato soup or the Moorish courgette soup do not use any cream but use coconut milk instead. As a main course for a dinner party or your Christmas menu, you can present a vegetarian version of a popular Flemish classic: Seitan Fondue! This will surely be the dish to convince your guests that seitan (wheat gluten) is a worthy meat substitute.

Or maybe you’d rather eat croquettes at Christmas or on a birthday? Then you should definitely check out Philippe Van de Bulck’s recipe for Seitan croquettes. There’re a lot less work than you might think.
