Ever since I placed my feet on Dutch soil two weeks ago, the traditional and “OH-SO-GOOD” Dutch treats have lured me in to many shops and stands with their irresistible look and smell. Most of these treats are laden with sugar, butter, cheese and meat and are not exactly what I would label “models do eat” food 😉
In the pictures you’ll see a few of the treats that I shamelessly devoured:
– Fries with mayonnaise and peanut sauce (the Dutch love their mayonnaise and peanut sauce combo)
– Stroopwafels (All my American friends love these caramel waffles)
– Oliebollen (The Dutch variation of the doughnut which is only available around the winter holidays)
Oh what a Joy these treats bring. Not only do they make you slip into a tonic state, they bring back lots of fun childhood memories as well!
Even after all these food festivities I surprisingly have not gained any weight. It must have been the hours of walking and cycling around town every day. I’m happy to know that I was able to indulge without the bulge! Yeah!
I’ll show my body my appreciation by loading it up with healthy foods again!
