Hi and welcome to this brand new site. My name is Simone and I started this site just now (that would be March 12th, 2023). Today in fact.
I’ve had blogs for as long as I can remember and my main site (in English) has been In Simone’s Kitchen. Focusing on food and recipes. But lately I felt the need to expand that into a wider territory. I’ve reached the age of 60 a month ago and that made me realize even more how important it is to stay healthy.
A little background on me; I was born in the year 1963 in one of the coldest winters we’ve had. I live in the Netherlands (born and raised Dutch) and I am currently single. I had a partner for 28 years but we broke up three years ago due to him having an alcohol issue. We’re still good friends and he has been sober now for 2 months so that’s a step in the right direction.
There’s a lot more to be said about all that, but let’s get down to the bare details first. Food photographer, food blogger, recipe developer and health coach. Those are the things I do for a living.
I firmly believe that getting and staying healthy is something we largely have into our own hands. Sure there are outside influences that you can’t control but there is also a big part that we can and should take ownership of.
This site will focus on all the things that make life fun but also all the things that you can do to get health or get healthier. So that includes delicious food, stress relief, lifestyle and travel. While travel is not necessary to get healthy it is something I love to do and what keeps me happy.
