WHERE CAN YOU EAT HEALTHY FOOD IN LONDON?
Wait, is this even possible? Yup, read on!
London is famous for setting the trends, and it’s no stranger to leading the way when it comes to the way we eat. The most potent trend in the food industry now seems to be healthy eating. After years of fast and low-nutrition food, people are finally looking for ways to treat their bodies and mind with food.
ORGANIC FOOD IN LONDON
The organic food industry has witnessed its first growth in sales in the past few years, and restaurants across the capital have taken notice. If you want to add a bit more broccoli and beans to your diet, then London offers plenty of treats.
‘Of course, they do, but at what price?’ you might say. It’s not too farfetched to assume the capital city’s healthy eating joints won’t be friendly to your wallet. While the city has its fair share of expensive, fancy restaurants, healthy eating in London isn’t only for the rich.
Below is a list of the best food joints in London that’ll give you a tasty and healthy food experience without the price.
TOP 7 BEST PLACES TO EAT HEALTHY FOOD IN LONDON
-At a reasonable cheap price-
1 | LEON RESTAURANT
-Various Locations around London-
The craze for healthy eating has also given birth to tasty fast food chains. Instead of filling your body with the unhealthy chains that leave more stuff on your waistline than your tummy, try Leon next time you are out and about.
You can find Leon’s restaurants in several locations in London – from Carnaby Street to High Holborn. The menu has tasty options from breakfast to dinner and everything between.
Porridge pots are around £2, with wraps prices close to £5. You should also go for the tasty salads that range from £4 to £7.

Tibits is an institution in London, offering some of the capital’s best takeaway vegetarian food! You can find anything from great salads to hot dishes such as heart-warming soups. The dishes are a range of styles, from Indian cuisine to Mediterranean influences.
You can start filling your tummy with just £2, with sandwiches and soups priced around £3 to £4. The pricing is based on how much food you put on your plate!

3 | THE DETOX KITCHEN
-For celebrity hunting-
The Detox Kitchen isn’t the cheapest on the list, but it is definitely worth the hefty price tag. You can count on celebrities like Elle Macpherson to vouch for this joint.
If you fall in love with the food (very likely!), you should also consider their detox packages. You can order them online and deliver healthy food straight to your doorstep.
There are amazing salads and drinks to opt for, and you can fill your tummy with a box of salads with meat or fish for around £9.

4 | GRILL MARKET
– Great for takeaways-
Healthy food can also be hearty; no one does it better in London than Grill Market in Holborn. The New York-inspired restaurant offers stunning lunch boxes to take to work or healthy breakfast to eat on your way to the office.
The great thing about the menu is its seasonality, as you can eat some of the capital’s best meat and vegetables – organic and local.
The prices range from £3 for granola to £6 for grilled halloumi and harissa salad.

5 | WAGAMAMA
-The one that has it all-
Wagamama deserves a mention on the list, although some calorie-heavy options are available. But if you are smart with what you pick, the chain is reasonably priced and has healthy options.
Soba noodles are a great pick for a health-conscious eater. Yaki Soba, for example, is a great dinner option. Just skip the katsu curry!

Very true! Health is everything & people usually get distracted by the world’s difficulties getting heart attacks and other major problems.
Great tips! Thank you! I always pay attention on good food. In our holidays in an Italy resort the food was also great!
Nice! Wish I’d seen this last summer. I just dined on salt beef bagels and beer. So delicious though.
Yeah, I must say that in England some food is not that bad (I got addicted to bacon) but not exactly healthy 🙂
