London has loads of restaurants across the city catering to those on a calorie-conscious health kick, diet, or detox (as well as those in need of something coeliac-friendly, dairy-free or paleo). It’s never been so easy to eat delicious healthy nourishing food. We’ve come up with some of our favourite places in and around South Kensington to indulge in some scrumptious delights.
The Good Life Eatery in Chelsea is a superfood cafe aimed at showing men and women alike that eating healthy food can be tasty, fun and fashionable.

HJem is a Danish-inspired healthy eatery and coffee shop. Small, yet bustling with an overflow of customers. Stop by to taste their avocado on homemade rye or cinnamon buns, which are by far their most popular items.
