HEALTHY EATING IN LONDON
Nowadays, there is an added emphasis on staying fit and maintaining good health. Everyone knows that the key to doing that is with your diet. Yes, exercise is important too, but what you eat takes up a large proportion of staying healthy.
Therefore, restaurants have had to adapt to the demands of their audience, and subsequently, there are now a plethora of places dedicated to healthy foods dotted around London. In fact, there are almost too many to choose from, so we’ve put together our top 5 to help you out a little bit…
We love Savage Salads here at the clinic. There is a common misconception when it comes to healthy eating, which is that it consists of boring salad after boring salad. So, when you see the name ‘Savage Salads’, it may worry you slightly. But, no need, because this place is extremely popular due to serving salads that are the complete opposite of boring. Everything is full of flavour, and there is a ton of healthy toppings such as grilled chicken, lentils, roasted sweet potato and orange zest.
Usually, people associate Japanese food with lots of cooking oil, and fried food such as chicken katsu. But, this place does Japanese food the healthy way, and every single piece of food on their menu is delicious. You can tuck into a low-calorie sushi, poke or sashimi, which you can accompany with a refreshing green tea from their tea bar. All in all, you can enjoy your diet at this place without feeling guilty.
Ottolenghi may be more on the expensive side compared all of the other places, but that’s only because all of the ingredients are completely fresh and high quality. The best thing to do here is to create your own salad combination, as they offer a multitude of different dressings, toppings, meats and other things to jazz it up a bit. This place’s ethos is to provide tasty food that can complement a healthy lifestyle.
This eatery is the master of healthy seafood dishes. Usually, seafood is extremely good if you’re looking to forge a balanced diet, as most things are low in fat, low in calories and high in all of the essential nutrients. So, enjoy yourself and dig into some prawn, grilled fish or lobster dishes. Plus, this place has a tradition, whereby every weekday they have three hours where oysters are just £1.
The Gate is aimed at those vegetarians out there, but meat eaters can still enjoy some of the fabulous dishes that are on offer. All of their menus are influenced by cuisines from around the world, such as miso-glazed aubergine or Thai green curry. They also offer a lot of vegan, gluten or dairy free dishes to cater for everyone.
