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

    … that is the question. Whether it’s nobler to prep and suffer under the pressure of your knives and spoons, or take arms against a kitchen full of food… I’m kidding. But then again, I’m not. If you’re anything like me, you’ve watched dozens – if not hundreds – of those meal prep videos, where… Read more

    Today is meal prep day again. So far, I cooked chickpeas, made two batches of hummus, a bottle of iced tea and a nice pot of vegan chili. I seriously love chili and could eat it every day. It’s one of my samefoods. My chili is made with dried red kidney beans, because why spend… Read more

    Today I’m doing just a quick reblog from my fantasy blog. I’m working hard on that story and things are going quite well. I also set up my author page on Facebook, in case you’d like to follow me there: Daan katz, Author. Because, you know, stories matter. And it seems to me, that now,… Read more

  • My Muse is back!

    July 3, 2020 by

    If you’ve recently visited my profile, you’ll have seen that it says: “Fantasy writer, Food Blogger, Cat Lover, Spoonie”, and you’ll see that I have two blogs. This one, and “The Elven Curse“, which is a recent addition. It has only two posts yet. The Prologue and Chapter one, but that will change soon enough.… Read more

  • Instant Pot Dump Dinner

    June 30, 2020 by

    It’s been a busy day and I hadn’t even thought about supper yet. I also had not done a lot of meal prepping last weekend, because it was simply too hot. I don’t tolerate heat well. So now it was half seven, and I had yet to figure out what to eat for supper. I… Read more
