Amsterdam City Love

1 comment
Wow. What an incredible few days I spent in Amsterdam. What a beautiful city that I have well and truly fallen in love with. Last Saturday I went to Amsterdam until Wednesday and it was one of my favourite places I have ever visited. Myself and my friend experienced so much in the short time we were there and I certainly did not want to leave come Wednesday. There are so many places to see and things to do that I don't think we could walk anymore if we tried! 

I ate some incredible food. During the second day we managed to find a cute little restaurant that was all natural produce. My friend is a vegetarian and suffers from eating gluten so we managed to find this restaurant called The Greenhouse Kitchen and the food was incredible. Pretty much all of the food on the menu was gluten free and it was soooo tasty. One of my favourite places. Then of course there was Omlegges! The famous omelette restaurant/cafe. We visited there for breakfast on the last morning and it was incredible. The range of omelettes were overwhelming and they tasted AMAZING. I gorged on so much food that I feel like a blown up whale now, but it was truly worth it. 

We visited the famous red light and that was such a crazy experience, from that we ventured into a sex show and even saw a peep show! The culture is something everyone needs to experience. Although it may not be everyones cup of tea but it's truly a magnificent place. It's interesting and we were lucky to have got to experienced the red light fully on a busy Saturday night. 

We managed to get into see the famous Anne Frank house which was also a magnificent experience. It's such a surreal feeling walking and looking at the place knowing how extremely terrified Anne and her family must have been during that time. We can walk around so freely now and knowing that Anne never got to experience that herself does put a lot of things into perspective. It is definitely a place worth visiting if you ever get the chance. We also visited the Van Gogh and the Rijksmuseum.

I'm Going to Amsterdam!

How has everyone's week been then? I hope it's been good! My week has flown by! A few unexpected events have happened this week such as my boyfriends brother picking us up in a Rolls Royce one evening! This has prevented me from getting stuck down writing a few posts…But totally worth it! Was such an awesome evening! 

Can't believe it's Friday! I'm suuuuuuuper excited for the weekend as I'm going to Amsterdam! I've never been and I'm so excited to explore the city! Does anyone recommend anything…other than the obvious..? 

Going away and maintaining a healthy diet can be rather difficult and after all it's okay to treat yourself. However I'm determined to try and stay as healthy as possible for the trip and ensure that I eat regular meals. So head over to my Instagram to catch up on what I get up to throughout my trip: @becominggeorgie  

A nice short and sweet post today, just to keep you all updated. I can't wait to share with you my experience in the city! Upon my return I have some blog posts lined up so stay tuned..especially if you want some healthy cures to a hangover…which I'm sure I'll most definitely be experimenting with in Amsterdam…

Have a fantastic weekend..
Catch you later!


Sweet Potato Rosti

Leave a Comment

This morning I woke up and I all wanted was a fry up. Sometimes you can't beat a bit of eggs and bacon! So I was gazing into my cupboard as I quite often do and saw my stash of sweet potato and my housemate suggested I make some Sweet Potato Rosti! So I did, and what a great and delicious idea it was. In fact it was so good that I thought I'd share it with you today. It's so simple and tasty! This could be such a simple breakfast idea or even just as a simple side dish to your meals.

Serves 2

What you will need:
Sweet Potato x 1-2 medium size
1 Onion
Sea Salt/Pepper (to season)
Coconut Oil

How to make it:
1. Grate the sweet potatoes. I left the skin on and used a normal cheese grater to grate them, but you can dump them in a food processor if you have one. Once you have done this place the sweet potato on a (clean) tea towel and squeeze out excess juices. Leave to rest for as long as you can. Whilst you wait chop the onion.
2.  Cook the onion on a medium heat until soft. Drain of the onion to remove any excess juices and mix with the grated sweet potato.
3. Divide the mixture into equal portions and heat the coconut oil (I put about a teaspoon size amount) in the pan. Then place the sweet potato portions in the pan and cook for 8-10 minutes or until they are nicely browned. (If you have some fried egg moulds then you can use these to shape the sweet potato if you wish too.) Carefully flip them and cook for a further 5-8minutes.

4. Serve and enjoy. I served these with some fried eggs (straight from the garden) but you can enjoy this with scrambled egg, poached, whatever you fancy!

p.s if the rosti's fall apart like mine did it's no biggie! They still tasted deeeeeeelicious! 

This is such an easy recipe if you have some left over ingredients or the cupboards looking a bit sparse! So go on give it ago and let me know how you get on!

 Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
