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:

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:
