While we’re advocates of being kind to yourself and eating food that makes you feel good, we never think that should mean compromising on taste. What’s the fun in eating otherwise?
With that in mind, we’ve scoured the whole of London to find the best restaurants and bars that offer tasty-but-healthy-food…
Roots & Bulbs, Marleybone and South Kensington
Roots & Bulbs is a fun little café that works tirelessly to create healthy cold-pressed organic juices, superfood smoothies and wholesome naturally sourced foods to build a healthy life for their customers.
In the words of founder, Sarah Cadji, “We are constantly misled by food marketing that over promises and under delivers. Enough Talk! I believe in simplicity in ingredients, quality in product and incredible taste. I can’t promise that our foods will turn you into a supermodel, but I can assure you that the produce you buy from us will always be unprocessed and real.”
They also offer a ‘Juice Plan’ diet that consists of 4 different smoothies and a light evening meal. Its pricey, but the results are meant to be worth it!
Food for Friends, Brighton
If you’re looking to escape London for the weekend, you must visit Food for Friends in Brighton. The Food for Friends Menu uses the freshest ingredients, local and organic where possible, with influences from around the globe. Their menu changes regularly, according to what’s most delicious and in season and everything is made from scratch, including the bread.
Perfect if you are looking for something different.
The Gate, Hammersmith & Islington
Open since 1989, this is one of the must-try places for any healthy eater or vegetarian. The food is a blend of Jewish, Arabic and Indian foods, which reflects brothers and co-owners Adrian and Michael Daniels’ cultural heritage. Our top tip: Try the beetroot ravioli, its simply delicious.
Expect exciting and interesting taste combinations that you’ll instantly love, plus the restaurant’s design alone, is pretty beautiful.
The Good Life Eatery, Sloane Square
This restaurant dedicates itself to healthy eating in the tastiest way possible. From waffles without the guilt to their detox lunch salad we’re obsessed with their food. Head over to their Instagram feed and you’ll know what we’re talking about, without having to taste a morsel.
