Bodyism | London

Bodyism

I am obsessed! You know, we live in a time where people are conscious about their body and living and eating healthy. Body awareness is just something people are interested in nowadays. At least I am. I am not trying to overdo the whole health thing but I try to use my common sense and like to try places that are focused on being healthy. Bodyism is such a place and does it in a great way thanks to its founder James Duigan (best known for working with Elle Macpherson.. rephrase THE BODY haha).
This little cafe has a few stools and tables for sitting down and a studio in the back where you can probably get one of the best work-outs in London (haven’t tried and tested…) All food in their cafe is organic, gluten-free and they only use refined sugars. The clean and lean coffee is probably the best alternative to normal cappuccino I have ever tasted.. I actually liked it MUCH better then my daily take-away skinny latte from Starbucks. Bit expensive though. The shop/cafe looks gorgeous. Very LA. It’s all plants, healthy food, design lamps, stools, yoga pants and books. I like it! 222 – 224 Westbourne Grove, London, W11 2RH | Tube: Notting Hill Gate | £££ | Website

De Vergulden Eenhoorn | Amsterdam

de vergulden eenhoornA new favourite in Amsterdam East. The people behind Hanneke’s Boom turned an old farm into the perfect all day hideaway. I felt like I was in the countryside sitting at their long wooden tables overlooking their picknick field. They use locally sourced food for great home cooked dishes. From brunch, lunch, dinner to evening drinks, they’ve got you covered with a great menu and a relaxed low key vibe. Hotel rooms are coming soon too, love this place!

CT Coffee & Coconuts | Amsterdam

CT Coffee and coconuts - Amsterdam - lunch
Now that I’m spending some time in Amsterdam as part of my maternity leave I finally have time to check out what’s new and fun in one of my favourite cities. CT’s is situated in an old twenties style cinema building so think extreme high ceilings, various floors and open plan everything.. A unique space. They did a really good job in making it feel relaxed with a natural look while still keeping it buzzing. Love the black & white photographs on the walls. Probably one of the reasons why it feels good is because it’s almost always busy – be prepared to wait in line for a table on the weekends. On the menu are fresh juices, smoothies, herbal teas, granola, coconut pancakes ( made from almond flour), different salads, a selection of bites and they do dinner too, all very delicious.
