Huel up your body!

Being professionaly focusing on food trends and all kind of food related innovations, sometimes you discover a new kind of food product that asks further investigation. Let me introduce Huel, a brand new food replacement in the market. I was in London when the team behind Huel give me some samples of their product: a white attractive, ûber neutral pouch, very low but strong branding in a black Helvetica typo and  the product itself has a velvety powder-ish feeling.     What is this Huel hype all about? Well, Huel is a nutritionally complete powdered food that contains all the proteins, carbs, and fats you need, plus at least 100% of the European Union’s “Daily Recommended Amounts” of all 26 essential vitamins and minerals . It’s been formulated by a renowned nutrition expert James Collier who has 25 years of experience working in nutrition and dietetics, so not a rookie would I think. Huel is 100% vegan (better for the environment and animals), super convenient, high in protein (148g per 2000 calories) and fibre (35g), contains just 4.6 grams of sugar per 2000 calories (no …

“Quid new posts?”

Hey people! Kate here. You might have wondered what happened the last couple of months, as my (I know…) quite irregular, but dedicated blogposts didn’t appear in your Bloglovin’ mailbox anymore. I have a very good explanation for this not so loyal, but temporary behaviour… Two months ago I moved!! Yes, we moved to a new house,. Out of our much beloved loft in the city to find a perfect spot for some much needed ‘no noise’ space. After the move, we left for a 3 week Ibiza holiday (my favourite spots over there will be posted soon, don’t worry) and once back home decoration of the new space started. Besides loads of professional work off course, a kick off of a new innovation bachelor course, where I teach and you understand why I’ve been so absent this last months. But the good news is, I’m back. In full force with great new Squid Stories on food, design, fashion, travel and trends. And some new insights I like to share with you on brand new …

Clean up 2010: White garden party at Duvel Residence

Zelden zo’n mooi feest meegemaakt, als deze zomer in Damme.We waren uitgenodigd door Veerle, de dochter van tante Jet (Madame Duvel, zoals wij haar als kind herinneren)De familie is deels eigenaar van de Brouwerij Duvel en de Duvel en Vedett vloeiden rijkelijk die avond.Het hele gezelschap was gevraagd in het wit te komen, en de tuin was omgetoverd in een schitterend wit party decor, met maar liefst vier settings.De food was onbeschrijfelijk, de in chocolade en frambozencoulis gedompelde foie gras op sticks met behulp van bevroren stikstof was voor mijn part de absolute topper van de avond.Hele toffe familie, heel gastvrij en open minded. We like! Bijschrift toevoegen Ons Bie met haar Blue. Happy. De ‘lounge’, één van de vele plaatsten om tijdens het feest te relaxen, genieten, te eten en te praten.Leuk was het om te zien dat de decoratie van het feest gedaan was door Henk van ‘Eland’, of zoals ze tegenwoordig noemen: ‘Stage Team’.
