She is firmly convinced of the beneficial effects of (organic) foods and believes that herbs and spices play a major role in our energy levels, our mood and our weight. To her, delicious food are one and the same thing. Here at Amanprana we have had the opportunity to create and collect various recipes together with Rineke Dijkinga, author of "Alles draait om je hormone" (It's All About Your Hormones), "Weten van (h)eerlijk eten 1 & 2" (What You Need to Know About Fair Food) and Weetjes over (h)eerlijk eten (Fair Food, the Facts).
