London’s healthiest bites
Who wants to live off kale leaves and feel hungry all the time? No one, but after a season of festive indulgence, it’s good to give your body a little TLC with natural, whole food-based meals to clean and re-energise your system. The capital now offers a host of healthy restaurants dedicated to helping you eat out in style.
Founded by husband and wife Duncan and Zoe Stirling, Squirrel is a fun, forest-themed dining experience. The playful selection of dishes includes Prawn Star, Oh My Cob and Absolutely Radishing salads, Miami Rice and Guac ‘n’ Roll warm grain bowls. There are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan options, all packed with flavour and finesse. You can even go nuts and create your own combinations.
Kick-start the new year at one of these healthy eateries
Those in favour of plant-based diets will love this chic vegetarian and vegan restaurant. With ambient tunes, smart décor and a stylish bar, it should even appeal to people who are reluctant to try meat and dairy-free dining. The menu focuses on gluten and wheat-free variations of comfort eats such as nachos, pizza, burgers and Indian curries. Good, clean fun.
St Paul’s & Spitalfields
If you’ve lost your mojo, let the ‘health squad’ at Vita Mojo get you back on track with a bespoke meal. A first-of-a-kind venue, customers can order according to their taste and dietary requirements via an iPad, selecting how many carbs, calories and proteins they want. The team, including Michelin-trained chef Paul Davies and F1 nutritionist Helene Patounas, have totally revolutionised healthy eating to go.
GOOD LIFE EATERY

With a Californian beach café vibe, it’s an ideal place to enjoy a relaxing brunch, working lunch or a slice of sugar-free cake and cup of lemon tea. If you’re watching your waistline, Good Life Eatery makes it less of a chore by offering classic options such as the Skinny Royal and Skinny Benedict, swapping indulgent ingredients for lighter ones.
