Although I am not a huge fan of living in London, I LOVE the amount of healthy food and drink spots there are everywhere you go. I have no where near visited as many as I want to, but I thought I would share some of my favourite one’s so far.
Wild Food Cafe is located in Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden, even the yard is colourful, bright and healthy looking. Wild Food focuses on plant based dishes, which is something I have incorporated more and more into my diet after reading books; Eat and Run, and Finding Ultra. I am in love with the concept of the restaurant which you can read all about on their website, which is almost as good as the food!
I visited Wild Food Cafe with a friend last weekend, (she is a self-confessed refined sugar addict) she loved it just as much as me. I ordered a fresh coconut to drink, I am addicted to anything coconut so this was a great thing to find on the menu, and ate the Wild Pizza Special, (raw, dairy-free young coconut cheeze, wild sea purslane & basil pesto, raw cultured tomato & goji berry marinara, Turkish olives, artichoke hearts, avocado), and a side of sweet potato wedges. Everything was delicious, obviously I couldn’t leave without a dessert to go. I picked a special of the day; coconut and banana cheesecake, which was absolutely delicious!
The Good Life Eatery on Sloane Avenue is another good one I visited recently. I had been desperate to try it so I wasn’t put off by the long wait for a table. I ordered some kind of thick green avocado based smoothie, chilli avocado on toast, egg white frittata and a sweet potato dip with crackers, (to share). Everything was delicious, I left with a slice of banana bread and a bottle of cashew milk to take away! I would recommend a visit, so long as you don’t mind waiting for a table!
Borough Market at London Bridge is one of my favourite places to visit on a weekend, I could spend hours there! My favourite lunch is a veggie stand that sells the best sweet potato and chickpea burgers, a long side a barley and broccoli salad. Every time I go I also stop by The Natural Smoothie stand and get a High Kick Smoothie (Kiwi, pineapple, strawberry, banana, spirulina, linseed, apple and orange).
Fresh Healthy Eating Cafe On lexington street is my favourite place in London for fresh juices and smoothies, everything is gluten and dairy free and there is so many to choose from! I also think it is the most value for money, a lot of juice spots in London can be very expensive for their portion sizes. I have also had a fresh salad from here, which was so yummy and fresh!
There are so many on my list to visit, especially Juice Baby and Tanya’s in Chelsea, let me know if you have any other healthy food spot suggestions for me to try!
