I’m pretty terrible at taking lunch in to work so am always super excited to find new places that cater for a healthy lifestyle and food intolerances. Whilst living a FODMAP-free life doesn’t have to mean eating only salads or boring food, those who do suffer with gut issues should (when they can), eat as healthy and nutritiously as possible.
I have great respect for people that want to make healthy food fun and that’s why my new favourite lunch place in the City in London, has to be Simple Health Kitchen, based just near St Paul’s station.
SIMPLE HEALTH KITCHEN
Their philosophy is spot on: “Simple Health Kitchen seeks to inspire healthy eating by changing the misconception of health food as ‘unappealing’ and ‘tasteless’. We strive to introduce a better way of eating that is simple, nutritious and that will positively enhance our customer’s mind, body and soul.”
With numerous salad, rice and pasta choices you can pick from, to pair with a veggie/meat or fish/protein option of your choice, you won’t go hungry and leave your lunch hour feeling full and satisfied. They cater for the vegan, the meat eater, the coeliac and those on a low FODMAP diet.
What I ate
My lunch today was a quinoa and courgette burger with dairy-free Caesar salad/ Ratatouille Salad / Courgetti/ Sweet Potato (NB: I didn’t eat the one piece of sweet potato that was in it as that’s not FODMAP friendly).
They also have a fantastic range of desserts: Raw no-bake cakes – Peanut butter and chocolate, Raw Bounty, Raw Snickers, Raw Avocado and Mint slice. As well as great breakfast options that are low FODMAP like Gluten-free banana bread loaf. Delish!
They’re open from 7.30am til 9.00pm so you can pop in before, during or after work.
Go check them out and tag #WTFod in your instagram photos so I can see what you ate.
