Annelies was always intrigued by the world and how we can impact it for the better. That intrigue led her to get a Master of Political Science at UGent and a Master of Education at UAntwerpen. Intrigued by how to make her own life more delicious and healthy, she started cooking at an early age.
When Annelies moved to New York City in 2011, she decided to unite both interests by assisting cooking classes at the Natural Gourmet Institute, while she also worked as a cook at Jivamukti Yoga School cafe and as a private chef. She is now evolved into full-time teaching about health and food, focusing on the bigger picture: we are what we eat. This means that if we choose wisely what we eat, it not only changes our health, but it will also give us more energy and help us emotionally and mentally. At the same time, what we eat will also impact those around us and even the whole planet. Besides studying and teaching, she loves spending time with her partner and two children, working in her vegetable garden and cooking for her family and friends.
