The Good Life Eatery

Sunday, 12 January 2014

I've met nearly all of my friends in the most bizarre encounters and my friend Emma is no exception.
When we both found ourselves queuing somewhat off the cuff outside Liberty's to grab Alexa Chung's new book 'It' at her booking signing, we instantly clicked. 
Emma 10 days into a 'Dry January' and myself a third of the way through my no gluten/no dairy/no unnatural sugar detox, we thought what better place to catch up and get some health-spiration than Sloane Avenue's brand new The Good Life Eatery.

The Good Life Eatery is a total breath of fresh air in London, specialising in cold pressed juices and super-food salads, it's the perfect place to meet a pal after the Gym and not feel an ounce guilty when you gorge yourself on a Chia seed pudding or a Maca Almond milk latte.
The hardest thing about eating healthily is finding things that taste just as good as a grilled cheese sandwich and a snickers bar. It's a brave statement, but I think this little spot may have just about convinced me otherwise.
We started with these intimidatingly green juices.
Never in a million years would I think of juicing Spinach, Kale, Cucumber, Parsley, Ginger, Lemon
together and like the outcome, but they were actually so good.
Next up for me was a Goodness Bowl.
A huge colourful array of leafy wonders, it was sure to make me feel like Gwyneth Paltrow.
White quinoa, kale, red kidney beans, avocado, winter slaw, pickled carrots, wakame with ginger soy dressing.
Emma wasn't quite as peckish and tucked into chilli avocado on gluten free toast.
The treats that lay by the door were almost too much for me, but being vegan friendly and low in gluten I know that when February comes around I'll be the first to grab a Banana Muffin.
I would definitely recommend a visit to The Good Life Eatery if you're in the area, it gave me some brilliant inspiration to keep up what had felt like an unbearable diet. I'm now excited for dinner!
I wore a Topshop dress and necklace and a Burberry Prorsum trench coat
Emma kept warm in a camel coloured coat and a Zara tartan scarf
