Simone Parris – Macrobiotic Chef & Founder of Simone’s Kitchen

My talented superstar friend, macrobiotic chef and entrepreneur Simone Parris is this weeks inspirational guest on Marlene & Friends.  Simone who is an incredibly gifted, artistic and talented cook has been cooking and working in the health and wellness industry professionally for more than 20 years and has been personal chef to Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman and Steven Seagal.  In her cooking, the objective is to create delicious meals that bring awareness as they nourish body, mind and soul.

Currently Simone is working with a team of friends to start Simone’s Kitchen Home Restaurant and B&B in the heart of central Europe, in Antwerp, Belgium!

Simone’s idea is to invite you to stay in her adjoining bed & breakfast allowing you to explore Antwerp with a home base that takes good care of you!  The newly refurbished, contemporary, comfortable and centrally located rooms will be available in the upstairs of the premise.

A healthy breakfast is included with your good night’s sleep to create the best start to your day. Also available to support your optimal wellness, you will have the option to pre-book a variety of holistic massages in the beautiful treatment room or time in the sauna room.

Like me, Simone sees cooking as an art and loves using the freshest organic ingredients emphasizing grains, beans, sea and land vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds to create a balanced wholesome cuisine with a wide variety of flavours, tastes and textures to delight the senses.

Simone’s Kitchen will offer a unique daily menu guided by the seasons and the freshest available ingredients to make tasty organic whole food and plant-based cuisine for all at her home-restaurant. There are extraordinary benefits of eating a whole food plant-based diet that Simone wants to share with you, such as:
Increased energy
Greater ability to relax
Sharper mind with better concentration and focus
Deeper and more restful sleep
Effortless weight loss
Clearer and more youthful skin
Stronger and healthier bones, hair, teeth and nails
More emotional stability along accompanied with a brighter and more optimistic outlook on life

Bill and I look forward to booking a trip to Simone’s Kitchen and enjoying her delicious cuisine, the fabulous B&B and having fun with Simone and the staff.   See you all soon in Antwerp.

In good health

  1. Thank you, it was helpful…I have one more question about algal oil—or algae omega-3. I came a cross on information that vegans have very low levels of long chain omega 3,and as we age ability to make the long chain omega 3 like DHA from short chain omega 3 in plant foods may decline.
    I know you said that you do not recommend supplementing (only B12) but I really need to hear what is your experience with this subject.Thank you.

    • We get tons of omega 3 from greens, flax and chia seeds… to name but a few, no supplements necessary….I have energy of someone half my age, nearly 60 and have never taken omega oils…. it’s all a selling game…. eat a diverse plant based diet and thrive…. it all depends on what vegans eat… many I see for health counselling live on processed foods, fake meats, juices, dried baked crackers, breads etc., wholegrains, beans, pulses, vegetables for land and sea, fruits, nuts and seeds…. will bring great health and vitality and you will thrive. Enjoy the day. xxx

      • Thank you so much 🙂 .

  2. Hi Marlene …could you tell me about vitamin D?…is supplementing D vitamin bad?
    Please tell me your opinion and knowledge on this.
    Thank you

    • Hi – sorry for delay, been full on with life… I am not a fan of supplementing and only use and recommended B12 for vegans. Worries over vitamin D, once known as “the sunshine vitamin,” have turned hundreds of millions of people into patients with worse, not better, health. The latest, and likely the final, analyses of the studies performed on treating people with vitamin D supplements has shown that this multiple billion-dollar business does not work. The authors, after thoroughly examining the results of nearly a quarter-million people from 46 major randomized trials, conclude: “Our findings suggest that vitamin D supplementation with or without calcium does not reduce skeletal or non-skeletal outcomes in unselected community-dwelling individuals by more than 15%. Future trials with similar designs are unlikely to alter these conclusions.” Vitamin D supplements are so powerless that the benefits of supplements can only be seen at the extremes of need, such as with institutionalized elderly women (and even then the benefits are with a combination of vitamin D and calcium, not vitamin D alone). In other words, if grandma can be wheeled onto the outdoor patio several times a week, she will reduce her risk of fractures far beyond any benefits hoped for by adding pills or injections of vitamin D.- hope that helps.
