To celebrate the launch of my newest book ‘Low Carb Lekker en Snel’ I want to show you how to increase your energy, strengthen your immune system and reach a healthy stable weight with the low carb lifestyle: a celebration of colorful vegetables, high-quality protein and healthy fats.
At the moment the book is only available in Dutch (Nederlandstalig) but we are looking for a foreign publisher to make it available in English too; I’ll keep you updated through our newsletter if we have any news about a translation.
In my previous books I introduced you to the ‘keto’ lifestyle and showed you how it will help you to turn your body into a natural fat burner.
But what about life after keto? How can you evolve to a flexible low carb lifestyle that is easier to combine with a busy schedule, a buzzing social life, and a family with young kids?
Or what if keto is too extreme for you or not the right match for your body type?
You’ll discover all of this and more in my new book ‘Low Carb Lekker en Snel’.

Low carb literally means ‘low in carbohydrates’, but this doesn’t mean you have to avoid all carbs. It’s all about avoiding refined sugars and quick carbs that spike your blood sugar and insulin and can cause weight gain, sugar cravings, chronic fatigue, poor sleep… Think of white bread, white pasta, sugar-loaded cereal, cookies, candy, and baked goods.
Instead, nourish your body slow complex carbs from vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, and sweet roots such as carrot, beetroot, parsnip, and sweet potato. Our body needs slow carbohydrates to function well, especially since they are high in fiber which supports healthy digestion, helps to beat bloating and prevent/relieve constipation.
But how many slow carbohydrates do you need to feel energized and maintain a healthy weight? This you will discover in my new book, where you’ll find out which foods work best for each body type, and how you can adjust your meals to your personal carb tolerance (which you’ll discover through a quiz).
My low carb cooking style is easy and straight-forward:
- Fill your plate with an abundance of vegetables as the base of each meal.
- Add high quality protein such as organic poultry, wild fish, free-range eggs, and tofu.
- Add a generous serving of healthy fats such as extra virgin olive oil, real butter, avocado, nuts, seeds, and omega-3 fatty acids from small fatty fish, seaweed, or a good supplement. Healthy fats are essential to keep you full and beat sugar cravings.
You don’t need to miss out on anything if you decide to cut all those refined carbohydrates and sugars out of your daily diet. In the book you’ll find recipes for:
- Snickers smoothie bowl
- Chocolate breakfast porridge
- Pad thai with noodles
- Chicken curry with cauliflower rice
- Spaghetti bolognese
- Swedish meatballs with sweet potato fries (with vegan options)
- Chocolate mousse pie
- And more!
All recipes are gluten free, sugar free, mostly dairy free and a combination of vegan, vegetarian, fish, and poultry dishes.
The book also contains a 15-day meal plan program that is easy to follow, with shopping lists and meal prep tips to save even more time.
I hope it will inspire you to give the low carb cuisine a try.
Enjoy the recipes!
