Summer is well and truly over, and Autumn is here. The in-between season, where we start preparing for the festive period, and our healthy diet goes out of the window… Not this year though (if we say it enough, we’ll start to believe it!). We’ve created a little list of our favourite healthy eateries in London to enjoy in the run up to that naughty festive period of gluttony. Wellbeing never tasted so good.
This Notting Hill based dining room calls our name regularly at the moment. Offering healthy yet equally as tasty substitutes to typically unhealthy meals such as burgers, nachos and chocolate treats, this ‘plant-based restaurant’ is one of a kind.
Why you’ll outstay your welcome: The general vibe. The wooden furniture and natural looking décor gives the restaurant a glam yet hipster LA vibe which makes eating there all the more enjoyable – you’ll never want to leave!
After re-evaluating his unhealthy lifestyle due to ill health, professional poker player John Tabatabai turned to a plant-based diet, leading to the opening of his gluten and dairy free café Rawligion. Everything is made on site, including a raw chocolatier (we’re sold), full-time juicer and raw-food chefs which prepare dishes incorporating ingredients from traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine and Aztec superfood’s.
Knock em’ back: The only shots that won’t leave you with a headache or regretting them in the morning. We love Rawligion’s ‘Liquid Gold’ shots, packed with Turmeric, Ginger, Sea Buckthorn Juice to help heal, sooth, and calm.
One of our favourite joints for breakfast and healthy nibbles, The Good Life Eatery host’s chains in Belgravia, Chelsea, Marylebone Lane and St John’s Wood. Their menu consists of cold pressed juices, bowls of ‘goodness’ including breakfasts, salads and warm hearty dishes such as our favourite ‘Curry in a hurry’ bowl.
Cheat Treat: Peanut Butter Cups. These things are dangerous, a healthy version of Reece’s peanut butter cups, means you’ll struggle to put the pot down. Organic peanut butter is healthy, right?
“If you’re a vegetarian – go! If you’re a vegan – go!, If you like food –go!” – straight from the Horses mouth (well, website), and we definitely couldn’t of said it better ourselves. Hosting four sites in London, Mildred’s pride themselves on their organic, vegetarian menu, as well as lots of vegan dishes to choose from too.
Favourite dish: The Halloumi burger with chargrilled aubergine, rocket, red onion, harissa and tahini in a flatbread. DELICIOUS. That is all.
