Natural Kitchen is one of my favourite places to go for lunch. They have such healthy choices, which all look and taste amazing. Natural Kitchen pride themselves on their fresh, quality and sustainable ingredients. I usually visit the Fetter Lane branch where you can eat in or take away. There is a fresh juice bar, a deli bar and a sit in restaurant menu. I usually go for the deli salad options. You can have just a mix of salad options, or you can have salad’s with a main.
The salads range from quinoa, sesame vegetables, butternut squash, lentils, chickpeas, Greek salad etc. The mains range from poached salmon, terriyaki salmon, char-grilled chicken, mackerel and many more. They also serve hot mains. You can also grab a fresh juice, coffee and they sell a range of healthy foods and snacks such as eatloveraw, ombarchocolate, bounceballs and a range of Pukka teas
I usually go for two salads and a main, and you could quite easily share three salads and a main between two people. I usually go for the quinoa, butternut squash, sesame vegetable salad and poached salmon.
Quinoa is an easy to digest grain. It is a complete source of protein, contains high levels of antioxidants and reduces bad cholesterol
Butternut squash is a healthy carbohydrate. It can help to improve cardiovascular health & digestion. It contains vitamin c, beta carotene, magnesium which help to normalise blood pressure and protect against strokes etc
Sesame seeds are a good source of Vitamin E, which is great for the skin and the nervous system. They are also high in calcium and help to protect the liver from toxic damage! (Good after a Saturday night!)
Pomegranate Seeds, like with lots of fruits the fibre is in all in the seeds! It is also high in vitamin C& K and promotes a healthy heart.
Salmon is rich is omega 3 fatty acids, which helps to lower blood pressure, bad cholesterol levels. They also protect the eyes and joints and is said to help prevent dementia, by feeding the brain.
All in all a healthy meal with good quality ingredients! It might be more expensive than you are used to (depending on what you get £5.99-8.99) but it tastes delicious and they have a stamping system where after every 6th meal, you get your 7th free.
There are also locations in Marylebone, Baker Street & Trinity Square in Tower Hill. The Tower Hill branch has a Mojito Bar, which I am yet to try!
