Food Nerd Nite // event


EN

It was Monday and I was in Antwerp - Belgium for a food event: Food Nerd Nite with a special theme: vegetarian/vegan food and drink! Vegetarian food? That's totally up my alley even though I'm just half vegetarian, I still love to eat vegetarian food or even completely vegan from time to time.

If you think that I was just eating boring salad the whole evening at this event you are wrong! I was introduced by the most impressive vegan food, drinks and the makers behind these food which were incredible inspiring. At the end of the evening all I can say that I left the event with a much healthy feeling, body and mindset.

Het was maandag en ik was in Antwerpen voor een food event: Food Nerd Nite met als thema: vegetarisch/vegan eten en drinken. Veggie eten? Dat past helemaal in mijn straatje ook al ben ik zelf slechts half vegetariër, ik hou nog steeds van vegetarische eten. Zelfs vegan van tijd tot tijd. 

Als je denkt dat ik bij dit event heel de avond salade zat te eten dan heb je 't mis! Er kwamen indrukwekkende veggie producten voorbij en maakte kennis met de makers achter deze producten. Heel inspirerend! Aan het einde van de avond kan ik alleen maar zeggen dat ik het evenement verliet met een veel gezond gevoel, lichaam en mentaliteit.

Kitchen Peeks
Promoting organic/vegan products at it`s finest way starts at the kitchen that is done by these fella`s from catering service: Local Heroes. I`m a supporter of organic and vegan products so I had high expectations that these fella`s does these pitching products justice.

To The End
The Nerd Nite Menu says: coffee or tea with sweets to finish off this evening. I had (great) coffee and this melt in the mouth dessert that was of course vegan. Amazeballs! And leaving the event with a pretty much healthy feel and body too, I love it!

Well done Food Nerd Nite.
