Happy New Year, if I may still be permitted to say; but for those who chose to extend the festive break, today is the first working day of 2018, and thus, the most tragic day of the year. January statistically correlates with a high volume of re-joiners to the gym again, resolving to be more active and live healthier. Preach alert; the choice I made years ago was to be relatively healthy as an all-year-round lifestyle approach, (not a seasonal one), and it’s broadly been an enjoyable one at that! But for those taking up gym membership today and mobilizing those resolutions (quite literally), remember that so much ground is “made in the kitchen”. So, to help you not only eat healthily but also eat delicious and adventurous fare in 2018, here’s my top curated list of old and new healthy restaurant discoveries to check out around London.

BAKED AVOCADO, SALMON AND EGG !
If you’ve been keeping up with my recipes over the past few months, you’ll know I’m slightly in love with avocado – be it avocado veloute, guacamole or avocado chocolate mousse to mention but a few. My recipes aim to be quick easy, delicious and nutritious. This little one is no exception.
