London is in many ways the opposite of LA, which is where I used to live before moving here in 2010. As you can imagine, making that move was quite a big re-adjustment. It’s still hard in many areas of London to find healthy food places but thankfully it is changing and more and more yoga studios, juice bars and healthy restaurants are popping up every month.
Here is a list of some of my favourite healthy places to eat in London:
The Good Life Eatery, Chelsea
This is a super cute cafe located on Sloane Avenue in Chelsea. It’s more a breakfast and lunch type of place and everything they serve is amazing. I tell my single guy friends to come here because the whole place is just packed with pretty girls. Try their signature kale salad, juices or amazing vegan and gluten free cakes. It can get really busy during lunch hours.
Tanya’s Rawfood, Chelsea
This place is beautiful and the food is great. I especially love their beverages menu which is full of stuff you may not have tried before, such as for example reishi, chaga or cordyceps lattes. They also do superfood cocktails which I’m yet to try but sounds interesting obviously (!).
Lama Artisan Raw Foods, Notting Hill
I was super happy to see that this place opening up a few months ago. It’s the London version of LA’s Cafe Gratitude and everything they serve is raw, vegan and wheat free. Their Mexican chili is amazing and watch out for the angel cream donut.
The Detox Kitchen, Soho
A very small little cafe in the same building as Triyoga. I usually get take-out smoothies or salads from there and it’s all amazing. They don’t have a lot of seating spots.
Roots and Bulbs, Marylebone
This place has incredible cold-pressed juices, smoothies, raw energy bites etc. Their green juices comes in 3 different levels, G1, G2 and G3 – G1 containing only greens and spices whereas G2 has a touch of apple and G3 being even a bit more sweet with pineapple as ingredient. Unfortunately they don’t have a seating area.
If you are looking to go to a nice restaurant for dinner that also has a lot of healthy stuff on the menu I really recommend Peruvian Coya. They have amazing food, such as lots of types of cevice, grilled fish and vegetables, quinoa salad and a heart of palm salad I just love. And if you want to even out that healthyness they have lots of amazing cocktails as well such as differet versions of Pisco Sour.
