Healthy eating without cutting out the luxury
Be it for new year or just because, a resolution to make a lifestyle change can be daunting. Most people make pledges of radical change that can feel like a sentence of austerity. If your resolution feels like a punishment, it’s unlikely to become a lasting habit that forms part of your lifestyle. This is why so many resolutions end in failure. So how can you pursue a target for healthy eating without cutting out the luxury?
Firstly, to eat healthily you don’t need to avoid eating out. Healthy living is all about balance, and adapting your lifestyle in ways that are attractive and sustainable. Luckily, London is home to a fantastic selection of luxury restaurants that offer healthy and delicious menus.
Increasing plant based meals is a great way to make our diet habits healthier. But vegan need not mean frugal. Holy Carrot’s plant based menu focuses on using ethically sourced, seasonal produce to prepare natural, gluten-free, and sugar-free meals. The dishes are visually delightful, and you can expect great flavours while living well.
More than just a restaurant, Wild By Tart is a destination with a deli, kiosk, bar, retail, and events space in addition to delectable dining. Sustainable, local produce is central to the menus, but the scope remains wide. Options include gluten free, dairy free and vegan, so there’s something for every diet.
From brunch to high tea to dinner, eat healthily all day long at Farmacy. Ingredients are sourced from the restaurant’s associated farm or from local, sustainable and environmentally conscious suppliers. The menu is plant based and natural, so there are no refined sugars here. There’s a full range of flavour though, with international cuisine very much central to the classics on offer.
Among the restaurants located at The Ned is Malibu Kitchen. Here, the health conscious Californian culture is recreated with a menu of superfood salads, cured fish and meat, and plant-based dishes. If you’re passing through, try the range of smoothies and protein shakes.
London’s most established vegan restaurant at over 30 years old now boasts four locations across the city, with a fifth on the way. The menu is 100% plant based with dishes that are colourful and vibrant. It’s all designed with fun in mind, with variations on diner classics and mocktails, so you can treat yourself without compromising health.
When it comes to a healthy eating lifestyle, we can often assume the first thing to go should be takeaways and deliveries. This is not the case, though! Choose indulgent and health conscious options to enjoy the comfort of food delivered straight to your luxury serviced apartment.
