Nutritious, eclectic and delicious food, SHOT is my kind of go-to lunch spot. What’s more, it’s not too far from work on the calm backstreets of Bride Lane. SHOT's Scandinavian-style interior is eye opening: with Dutch tiles surrounding the space like a cocoon, it has a cleansing but avant-garde mood. It feels like a disco … Continue reading Shot

The Lido Café

Lunch at an outdoor swimming pool on a sunny July afternoon? Ideal. Unless you live in a certain patch of South London, you probably won’t be familiar with The Lido Café at Brockwell Lido. It’s a locals’ secret kind of place. As a totally committed South Londoner, with my thinking cap on for where to … Continue reading The Lido Café

Mae Deli

As a Deliciously Ella fan, I was surprised I hadn’t yet visited the Mae Deli. It’s probably because I tend to recreate her recipes chez moi – whether this be her moreish energy balls and cacao cookies, or her maple chia pots, superfood smoothies and endless grain bowls. Her recipes have – quite literally – … Continue reading Mae Deli

This really is a first for me – normally, my companions consider me to be the “restaurant guide” and allow me choose our … Continue reading Ethos


Juicebaby is a healthy eatery on the King's Road which opened in October 2014. Its philosophy is "little by little" as ultimately, it's the little changes and choices that we can make in our eating habits that can make a big difference. Perhaps it's because my of own experiences and the game-changing role that diet … Continue reading Juicebaby

Nama is also a raw food restaurant . Listed in so many guides to healthy … Continue reading Nama Foods

Beany Green's 30-seater flagship cafe in Broadgate Circle promises a “distinctive blend of Aussie coffee, bold healthy food, and unique street art”. It’ll only take you a walk outside, and a look at the colourful, cheeky pop-art window decorations, to realise they’re not doing things by halves.
