Its a good trend that people are becoming more aware of their lifestyle and wellbeing. In London, I first came across this place called the Detox Kitchen by chance. I got hooked immediately with their idea and the food they offer.

Lily Simpson, founder of the Detox Kitchen,  believes that the food we eat can have a powerful effect on our health. This is why they focus on creating nutritious, wholesome food using good quality, seasonal ingredients cooked from scratch daily in their kitchen. Hoping to get more people eating and enjoying healthy food, Lily, who is passionate about cooking, created the Detox Kitchen back in 2012, and it has grew ever since.
What’s really great is that they offer different packages to order, and your meals will be delivered to your door every morning, so your whole week’s meals are sorted.  It works very well for anyone who has a very busy schedule, got no time to do grocery shopping, plan the meals and cook, and who wants to eat healthy but don’t know where to start. The packages are not the cheapest in town, but they are affordable (given the general cost of eating out in London), and the quality of the food are fresh and high.

I’ve tried some of the packages while I was working at Net-A-Porter, simply because I really had no time and energy to shop and prepare for a healthy meal. And as we all know, when you only have an hour for lunch, day in day out, eating the same thing at the same place can be rather boring. The package, for me has more than enough for a day’s intake, while I’ve heard some saying it’s just about right, not enough for some.

It was at that time that I became addicted to one of their granolas. The nutty crunchy grains are perfect for mixing with yogurt. Just recently they’ve opened a new deli on Bernard Street, not too far from British Museum, and right next to Russell Square tube station.  Not only they’re expanding quickly with their delis, they have also created their first studio on the lower ground floor of our flagship deli in Fitzrovia, London. The best instructors in their field can work with them providing a range of yoga, pilates, barre, ballet and high intensity training classes. Of course, healthy smoothies and meals are available to pre-order or purchase pre and post classes.

Determined to create awareness of a healthy lifestyle that combines eating and exercises, the Detox Kitchen now has 3 beautiful delis in central London, on top of the wide range of home deliveries they have already been doing for years. There just isn’t any other excuses for not having access to start eating healthy. If you think the cost of ordering delivered packages are too high in the long run, why don’t give it a try for a week or two as kickstart, see how your body feels after eating clean and healthy, maybe you will realise its worth the price afterwards?

For those who are travelling to London soon, might be a good idea to pop into one of the delis and try it for yourself.
