KVDE

My name is Karlijn van den Elshout (KVDE). I create, connect, learn and analyze in the broadest sense of the word. I make choices, feel pain, experience love, find myself entangled in dilemmas and look for answers. I am curious and headstrong, and I will dive headfirst into my backpack full of experiences. I’m convinced that I can help you or your company in the way that suits you best. Hire me to get inspired.

FOOD, THE BODY AND MIND;
IN THE KITCHEN I CONNECT THEM ALL.

I would like to share my passions with you. Choose, read and get inspired.

Or let the story choose you..

BELIEVE

I didn’t get ´religion´. My brain couldn’t understand how you could believe God, the church. Believe, regardless of so much misery in the world, so much pain. And then the story of heaven, the place you go after you die?? When you’re dead you’re dead. At least that’s what I thought then. 

LINSEED • WATER

It doesn’t get any easier than this. I wish I had come up with this myself, but no, it just popped up somewhere online. And as all recipes in the world are actually spin-offs of some existing recipe, I invite you to try my recipes and then give them your own twist, that’s the fun part. Play.

CHOCOLATE • DATE

Fast, gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free sweets are my jam. When I started changing my diet years ago, sugar was the biggest bitch to kick, especially when pms came into play. This made me come up with many easy and quick solutions to satisfy any sweet craving in a responsible way. Here is one of the recipes. You can play with this recipe by adding different seasonings.

THE DREAM

I choose to listen to my intuition on a level I haven’t done before.
I reached this level because I’m good with all that is. I look my life and my choices straight in the eye.

What makes you happy?

OATS • SEEDS

Unfortunately there are not many kinds of bread that my body tolerates. I experimented with baking sourdough bread for a while, but I liked it a bit too much, and before I knew it I was eating bread every day.

PAY WHAT YOU WANT

Money and what it’s worth. What is it actually? Now if you’re a starter, have just finished your studies, you can’t buy or rent a house because the bank, the landlord, society is afraid that you can’t pay for it. Apparently living is only for the elite these days. I do not understand. My knowledge about the financial world is minimal, but looking in from the outside, it looks like a fairy tale that unnecessarily classifies humanity. 

I’M AWESOME, LET’S WORK TOGETHER!
