Welcome to Gourmet Spoonie!

My name is Katz. Daan Katz. I love food. I love cooking.

I love life.

I also happen to be a wheelchair user and a Spoonie, so I know from personal experience how hard it can be to take good care of yourself when your pain levels are through the roof and your fatigue is weighing you down like nobody’s business.

That’s why I decided to create this website. To help other Spoonies take back their lives. Because there are ways. They’re not always easy, but they are there.

Let me take you by the hand and show you.

The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach

    As I mentioned before in The perfect meal plan (part 1) and The perfect meal plan (part 2), meal planning is hard for me. Incredibly hard, and so I often just don’t bother.

    We’ve made it to the last day of 2020. The year of the Corona Pandemic. The year of loo paper hoarding, mouth masks, compulsive handwashing, and social distancing. We worked from home, we zoomed, we home schooled, we ordered our groceries online, and reduced CO-2 emissions worldwide. Our world became quiter, and cleaner. And now,… Happy… Read more

    The pandemic had me staying in voluntary self isolation for a long while, but eventually I got completely fed up with not being able to do my own shopping. It’s a right pain in the arse when you order your groceries and then things go wrong with your order – as happens all too often.… Read more
