London Healthy Travel Guide ~ Eat, See, and Do
Updated: May 27, 2020
Last week, Trevor and I spent the most amazing 7 days in our favorite city. We've been to London quite a few times now and plan on returning for even more future visits! When we visit ANY new city, we mostly plan our days around what our next meal will be (anyone else??). So you can safely guesstimate that I have tried quite a few restaurants in London now! If you're planning a trip to London, then there are a few places you absolutely MUST arrange your trip around!
Today I'm sharing my complete guide for what to do and where to eat in London. These are tips and places I've curated from multiple visits, weeding out the "just okay" and leaving behind the truly awesome. Keep in mind, London is a BIG city, so I'm leaving off many of the traditional (yet amazing) things to do like visit Big Ben, take a tour through Churchill's War Bunker, etc. There are plenty of other websites you can find to tell you ALL about those amazing sites! But THIS is your guide to eating and being well in London! Enjoy a cuppa for me! ;)
Where to Eat
I'm putting this at the top of the list because everything about Feya was fantastic ~ the food was beautiful, the staff was friendly and the setting... WOW. Just take a peek at their Instagram for this unique design. It's located in Marylebone and an easy tube ride and quick walk to access it. I recommend the Rose Avocado Toast with Poached Egg, any of the salads or the Pastel Rainbow Smoothie Bowl.
Andina is a Peruvian restaurant located in Shoreditch. It's very reasonably priced, cozy and perfect for a healthy brunch. I got the chia pudding (which was very filling!), but they also have a variety of superfood smoothies and OMG worthy Peruvian Corn Cake. You can see more of Andina's amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner options HERE.
This is a classic in my opinion. It's one of the first "trendy" brekky places I visited in London. Farm Girl is situated in Notting Hill, very close to Portobello Street which has amazing street side vendors and shopping. You can get rose lattes, buckwheat pancakes, poached eggs and turmeric lattes at this cozy location. They also have several other locations around the city.
This is more of a coffee shop meets co-working station, than a true coffee shop. But it's definitely worth the visit! They generally have plant-based salads, sandwiches and amazing coffee that you can sip and munch on. TY has multiple locations, but I loved their Seven Dials one.
This is far from a quaint, cute little coffee chop, BUT it is a lifesaver when you need some organic coffee and a quick salad between activities. Pret is literally (seriously... no joke about this one) on almost every street corner in London. When I'm in London, I drink Pret coffee because it's organic and I've found it doesn't spike my anxiety the way other coffees do. They also have amazing options for açaí bowls, salads, nuts and hard boiled eggs for a quick bite to eat when you don't have time for a full meal.
I've admired @deliciouslyella for a while now, so it was exciting to eat at her restaurant for the first time a few years back! Now, it's a spot I revisit when I need ALL the fiber after a crazy day of traveling. Her restaurant is located just a short walk from the Oxford Circus Underground and is a mere blocks from Hyde Park. So get a good, hearty and healthy lunch in, then head out for a stroll through the park!
