Two books: Eat that Frog and On Top

Maybe you’d think it is not my subject, but today I want to talk about efficiency. Efficiency, that sounds so profit-like, right? But I want to talk about efficiency in a different way, I want to talk efficiency as in accomplishing your goals and doing what you love. The following two books helped me a lot and they strengthen this story a lot too. Today I’m talking about efficiency with two books: Eat that Frog by Brian Tracy and On top by Anna Nooshin.

This is a Good Guide by Marieke Eyskoot

Sometimes, I get the question on where to start. Where to start a sustainable lifestyle, and how to. If you don’t live sustainable, there are many paths to walk. And what is sustainable? I like to translate it as within the earth’s capacity, since you can measure that. I understand that it can get overwhelming, because there are so many ways to start. Luckily, there are people who develop guides, or paths as you may call them. One of them is This is a Good Guide by Marieke Eyskoot. And so there it is, a book which makes you understand where to start.

Lekker Koken met Restjes by Daisy Scholte

Food waste, a huge and urgent topic if you ask me. Even though it’s not the biggest thing you can do to combat the climate crisis, I hear a lot about it around me about it. I think this is the case because it’s very visible but also because there are hundreds of tricks to reduce food waste. The motto? Just eat it. Even though I said that preventing food waste is not the biggest thing you can do to combat the climate crisis, that doesn’t mean that it’s not important. On the contrary! And so today I’m discussing a book that can help you with fighting food waste: Lekker Koken met Restjes by Daisy Scholte (a Dutch book).

The Hidden Impact by Babette Porcelijn

The past week I’ve read a book that has been on my list for a long time. I still remember the day it was launched. My social media blew up (I follow a lot of people who are concerned with the environment) and I saw the writer on television around that time too. I wanted to read this book so bad. This is the book that’s the basis of an eco-positive lifestyle, every person should read this! I’m talking about the book: The Hidden Impact by Babette Porcelijn.

De Vegarevolutie by Lisa Steltenpool

A few months back I’ve gone vegan, I no longer eat any animals products on purpose (sometimes by accident, but I’m learning). I don’t really make it known in real-life, but somehow people always find out. And when people do, they have a ton of questions. I get that, veganism can be uncommon ground for someone. But I like it when people ask questions because I like to talk about veganism. Most questions people ask me can be answered by reading this book: De Vegarevolutie by Lisa Steltenpool (in Dutch).

Utopia for Realists by Rutger Bregman & The Art of Happiness by Dalai Lama

This week it’s time for a random subject upon this blog. That’s because I can share whatever I want on this blog haha! Therefore, today I don’t write about zero waste, veganism or climate change. Something completely different and new. Two books! Utopia for Realists by Rutger Bregman and The Art of Happiness by Dalai Lama.

Skin Cleanse by Adina Grigore

Today I’m sharing a book about cosmetics with you. Huh, what? Yes, I am. I tell you all the time how we don’t need most of these cosmetics (at least, I don’t). But this is different. This book is about réal skincare and I’m very excited about it. And it also aligns with this philosophy of mine: less is more. I read Skin Cleanse by Adina Grigore.

Het Hedendaagse Heldenboek by Rachel van de Pol

With this blog I keep telling you over and over: individuals have a massive impact on our planet. And therefore, every single person can have positive impact, every single day. Up until this point the focus of this blog has been about sustainable changes to cross out the negative impact on the planet. But there are other ways to make positive impact. This book gives you the tools to do it: Het Hedendaagse Heldenboek (The Herobook of Today) by Rachel van de Pol.

Series and book: Hoe word je 100?

Food and water are the two most important things we need in life. Without any of these we die, simple is that. A person has to eat. But what should a person eat? It’s a subject which raises a lot discussion. There is a lot to choose when you’re putting together your diet. The amount of pesticides it takes to produce it, the amount of CO2 emissions it takes, the amount of water it takes. But a part of your health is also determined by food. And that’s why I want to share the series and book ‘Hoe word je 100?’ (‘How do you turn 100?’) today.

How I Lived a Year on Just a Pound a Day by Kath Kelly

A while ago I read a book about a new subject to me personally: living off of very little money. It’s been a theme I’ve thought about a lot but never read a book or written a blogpost about. Today that has changed! I think the theme can align with a sustainable lifestyle in many ways, but it can clash too. Anyhow, a friend recommended this first book to me and I read How I Lived a Year on Just a Pound a Day by Kath Kelly.
