Food Glorious Food in London

I just spent a few days in London with my husband, enjoying impressive exhibitions, dizzying shopping and of course, glorious food.

Travel is always an opportunity to try new food so I took some photos for a little culinary inspiration!

A big trend at the moment in healthy food is the Vegan Raw Food Movement where food is not cooked above 42 degrees centigrade to preserve nutrients and enzymes. I find the focus on plant-based, unprocessed foods very appealing and was curious to try a restaurant serving only raw foods. If you are interested, I share some of my tried and tested recipes for raw desserts here.

Lets start with some raw food photos:

Raw crackers made from seeds and avocado

In addition to eating well, we also explored Whole Foods Market, the American health-mecca, and Borough Market, one of the best food markets I have ever been to. Here are some photos of Borough Market:

    Hi Hiba, I can tell you how to make them :-) And you know what I learned at the class as well? There is a restaurant here in Basel that offers a raw food menu! The owner also took the same class… So next time you come, we can go there, if you like!

    It is very good – a good alternative to pasta :) and yes, lets try it soon!

    I am intrigued by the Vegan Raw Food Movement … especially the shredded carrots and zucchini pasta.
    Let’s try that soon!
