Tip from Rineke:
Rice, beans, sunflower seeds and feta form a great protein combination. Vegetarians, athletes and people with serious illnesses need to be careful about eating daily protein combinations. All of our neurotransmitters are made from amino acids! Recipe from the cookbook “Weten van (h)eerlijk eten” (Knowing how to eat well) by R.Dijkinga, orthomolecular therapist and naturopath.
Rineke Dijkinga is specialist in orthomolecular medicine and naturotherapy and also knows an extraordinary amount about nutrition. 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). Her main aims are to highlight how important herbs and spices are, that we should opt for organic food and that we should focus on the preventative in prevention.
