Every week we get to know a participant of the WOMAN Lekker in your vel-challenge 2021 better. This week its Ivonne van Beeks turn (49). Together with a friend, she participates in the challenge for the third time!
“ Three years ago, my sports friend Christel saw the WOMAN Lekker come by in your field-challenge. Since then, we participate every year, mainly to reset. In the December month you often eat a bit more and in January you have to get back into a certain rhythm. It works very well when you start the year with such a challenge.
So again with Christel. It also helps a lot to do it together. Sometimes you are not quite sure of a recipe but the other one can urge you to just try it. Somewhere this week there was porridge on the menu for the morning. I never had to have any of that, but Christel urged me to make it and try it, and it was very easy for me!”
“The challenge so far pleases. However, at the beginning of the challenge, last Tuesday, I had a lot of headaches, but that is of course because all the sugars were leaving my body. A day later it was already a lot less and now its completely gone.
I have three teenage sons and a man who doesnt like everything all the time. Sometimes its just a little puzzling with the dishes I prepare. Especially my sons sometimes criticize the meals, but if they really dont like something, I make something different for them or do it myself. For example, all men in the house do not like mushrooms, so I prepare for them another vegetable.”
“Last Saturday, I had a hard time because I had prepared for a Sin Saturday, so it was a cheatday. Then when I saw a smoothie with 70 percent vegetables and spinach banana pancakes, it didnt make me happy. Especially the latter is not so devoted to me. But when I saw the recipes of the second week, I became a little happier again, thats more my taste. I look forward to the weeks to come!”
