Jimmy Joy

Jimmy Joy’s Complete Food

Eating meals from a package is not really my thing. If it’s not made with ingredients that are tasty, fresh, nourishing and fulfilling, what’s the point of eating in the first place? So when Jimmy Joy send me a box with their ‘complete food’ consisting of shakes and bars, I was honestly a bit hesitant to try them out at first. Shakes and bars in a wrap just don’t look very tempting to me. But since I’ve heard good things about Jimmy Joy’s ‘complete food’ and they recently turned most of their products vegan, I decided to give it a try anyway.

Stuffed Tomatoes with Vegan Pesto & Quinoa

Tomatoes are one of my favorite vegetables (or fruit, whatever). The thing about the average tomato in the Dutch supermarket is, you never know what to expect. One day they’re orange and tasteless, the next they’re watery and hard. And if there’s one thing that turns me off, it’s watery, tasteless tomatoes.
