Friendship without borders: Laura Van de Vorst

My friend Laura is the kind of person that inspires me and I’m glad we met during our studies in Copenhagen. It didn’t take us long to bound, it was obvious we had a lot in common. She appeared to me as an inconditional dreamer, an adventurer (she lived in Australia, Denmark, Holland and Italy) and optimistic with a constant smile on her beautiful face, but also a hard worker with a rather authoritarian lifestyle, at least I thought at first. You can imagine, with my typical French eating habits, I was meeting for the first time a person following the Paleo Diet: «Whaaaat? You don’t eat baguette?» Eventually she taught me all her healthy secrets, while still partying until dawn, and today I thank her for that.

After she graduated with a Master’s degree from the Copenhagen Business School in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, she naturally started pursuing a degree in Nutritional Medicine. As co-founder of healthcoachFX, an Online personalized health coaching, and blogger at The Green Tribe, she aims to “inspire, empower and connect wellness-seeking warriors with simple, delicious and earth-worthy ways to live better every day”. Today, she set up home in Hamburg (where we took the pictures) with her loved one and her yoga mat and she keeps following her passion of storytelling while trying new delicious recipes to share with you on The Green Tribe.

She’s wearing a coat from Vanilia, a cool brand from Amsterdam.

Mon amie Laura est le genre de personne qui m’inspire et je suis heureuse que nous nous soyons rencontrées lors de nos études à Copenhague. Il ne nous a pas fallu longtemps pour s’entendre, nous avions beaucoup de similarités. Elle m’est apparue comme une inconditionnelle rêveuse, une aventurière (elle a habité en Australie, au Danemark, en Hollande et en Italie) et une réelle optimiste dotée d’un sourire constant sur son beau visage, mais c’était aussi une bosseuse avec un mode de vie plutôt autoritaire, du moins je l’ai cru au premier abord. Vous imaginez, avec mon alimentation typiquement française, je rencontrais pour la première fois une personne suivant le régime Paleo: «Whaaaat? You don’t eat baguette?» Au fil du temps, elle m’a appris tous ses secrets d’un mode de vie plus sain, tout en faisant la fête jusqu’à l’aube, et je l’en remercie aujourd’hui.

Après avoir obtenu son Master à la Copenhagen Business School en Innovation et Entrepreneuriat, c’est tout naturellement qu’elle poursuivit un diplôme de médecine nutritionnelle. En tant que co-fondatrice de healthcoachFX, un site de coaching nutritionnel personalisé, et bloggeuse pour The Green Tribe, elle a pour but d’inspirer, de valoriser et de connecter les fous de bien-être avec de simples, délicieux et respectueux moyens de vivre mieux au quotidien. Aujourd’hui elle a posé ses valises à Hambourg (où nous avons pris les photos) avec sa moitié (également un jeune entrepreneur) et son tapis de yoga et elle poursuit sa passion de narratrice tout en partageant de savoureuses recettes avec les lecteurs de The Green Tribe.

Elle porte un manteau Vanilia, une super marque d’Amsterdam.

La Fée Nature

In the chapter of healthy/bio/organic restaurant, there is one you shouldn’t miss if you are in the area of the 2ème arr. First of all, it is called “La Fée Nature” – how cute is that – and you kind of start to imagine all the little fairies flying around your head while you’re eating your Quinoa. The pies are a MUST and there are made with soya milk which makes it easy to digest (yeeeess I know some that would appreciate that little detail). Anyway it is the perfect place to have a healthy lunch break and to eat in a cosy atmosphere, the interior design is very colorful and joyful, makes you forget about your (hard) day at work and most of all, the staff is extremely welcoming and friendly. Once you become a regular, you get your little card of the restaurant and every time you show up, you get a stamp that certifies that you just had a 100% organic meal. That sandwich at the bakery next door looks very very boring now!
