GUEST BLOG: Hip & Healthy's Top 5 Healthy Havens in London

Happy September to all my readers!  I am so excited to have been asked to be an ambassador for my favourite online wellbeing magazine, Hip & Healthy and I hope I do them proud!!  Their gorgeous editor, Sadie Macleod has kindly offered to share with us their top 5 healthy havens in London:

Chloe's Pilates

After pounding the pavements of the Kings Road. Find refuge at The Good Life Eatery, located on Sloane Avenue. They have a wide variety of cold fresh pressed juices as well as healthy snacks and a delicious menu to choice from. Plus their Ronaccino (not always on the menu) is to die fore – A nut mylk frappacino perfect for perking you up in this hot weather. 59 Sloane Avenue, SW33DH. www.goodlifeeatery.com

Super chic and deliciously vegan, Raw is a T-Total restaurant set in up-market hotel La Suite West. What it lacks in alcohol it more than makes up for in superfood smoothies. Enjoy an energizing and immune-boosting drink on their outdoor terrace before moving inside for some seriously gourmet vegan fare – most of which is raw (obvi). Deliciously Ella is a fan! 41-51 Inverness Terrace, London, W2 3JN. www.lasuitewest.com/raw-vegan-restaurant-london

This amazing café, located in Kingly Court in Soho, is the perfect place to meet a friend for a juice and a catch up. It is situated next door to TriYoga, so you could attend a class and then head to the café to relax and refuel in a natural, healthy way. Plus they have a Hip & Healthy Smoothie on offer! Be sure to give it a try and get our cleanse guide half price!

Set in one of our most coveted chic department stores, Harvey Nichols, the Detox Kitchen offers an array of delicious juices and healthy, dairy-free veggie food. We have a particular soft spot for their vegan, sugar-free brownies, which are best enjoyed with a hot drink teamed with one of their nut mylks… #yum! They also have just opened a restaurant in Soho’s Kingly Court. Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge. www.detoxkitchen.co.uk

Possibly one of our favourite places to go right now, Nama offers an array of delicious vegan dishes all of  which looks as beautiful as it tastes. The smoothies are expensive but worth it and our top tip here would be to book your table to avoid disappointment.  The vegan, raw lasagna is divine followed by a vegan “bounty bar” from their fridge for desert. The perfect place to go with friends and family for a light lunch or quick evening meal. 110 Talbot Road, London. www.namafoods.com
