Amsterdam Dinners: Everything on a Stick

Inspired by food sticks that are sold at food stands alongside the roads all over the world, the idea for everything on a stick was born.
Everything on a stick is an upscale all-you-can-eat restaurant, and as you've might already expected, all the dishes are skewered! Indulge in lamb on a rosemary stick, or scallops wrapped in bacon. Or how about skewered potato chips or honey glazed salmon?
The menu is served in a somewhat cosmopolitan and modern atmosphere, with inspiring places around the world projected on the wall!
The portions were a bit small and  the time in between ordering and for the food to arrive was too long, however maybe the waiting made the food taste even better and our patience was rewarded.
The restaurant in located in downtown Amsterdam alongside the canals, perfect for an evening after-dinner stroll...

Rituals: Bikram Yoga

With all the Olympic buzz going on I started to think about my own sport habits. The workout that works wonders for me is Bikram Yoga, or Hot Yoga. It is performed in a room over 40 degrees and a humidity of 40%, so sweating is guaranteed. After just a few classes I felt and saw several improvements, like a healthy glow on my skin, better sleeping and stress relief.

Here are my ultimate yoga tips:
1. DO NOT wear make up, because after 5 minutes it will be all over the place.
2. Wear something short and comfi, the Dutch brand Rituals features stylish yoga clothing.
3. Don't drink during your work out
4. Drink lot's of Coconut water after the workout; tasty and healthy!
5. eat two hours in advance of your work out, I prefer a light veggie soup like this one: Bell pepper Soup
6. Drink some fresh mixed juice an hour before class to enhance your body's sugar levels.
7. Enjoy!
