This is post how I ate myself through the first week in London. Featuring the amazing good Roots Festival and me meeting one of the biggest food bloggers in the world. (the smoothie is from The Detox kitchen, looks like every princess dream and the place is so cute!)
Breakfast at 26 grains
After 3 days living on smoothies and fresh pressed juices for breakfast, (don’t get me wrong this is amazing!) I was craving the good old porridge! All of my friends recommended me this place 26 grains and I couldn’t wait to try it. It was a some would say “typical” London Sunday with rain when Google maps and me, tried to find the cafe. It actually located in a small “garage” and pretty close to Oxford street and the best thing is: that Salad Pride (super healthy salads!) and the Wild Food Cafe (see what I ate there here and here) are just a stone’s throw away.
The most difficult thing on this Sunday besides not getting all wet in the rain was choosing the porridge. After 10 minutes of switching from the Banana Cacao to the Blueberry Almond and back, I decided to go with Blueberry Almond. Always in my mind, that I will be back and try every single one.
Which one would you choose?
The Good Roots Festival
The Good Roots Festival was a healthy foodies gathering that my friend Marie recommend going too. There were tons of healthy food stands, speeches, and interesting people.
So many choices!
The food was (of course) amazing although we had to wait in line for about 30 minutes. We really earned that Indian plant-based meal!
Ok…this is seriously the best thing I’ve bought on this day! The Raw Millionaire Bites from Livia are the bomb! I especially love the orange oil flavored but the salted caramel is super yummi as well and in this case, they perfectly fitted the picture with my blue wristband.
The whole location was rad, but I especially liked the room where the speeches took place. A mix of industrial style yet still very comfy.
After having lunch we listened to a “bloggers and health” talk, hosted by David and Luise from Green kitchen stories. They were so nice and just listening to their story , inspired me so much. They also gave a short smoothie course with tips and tricks.
If you don’t have a strong blender, always blend your greens with the water first, before adding the rest of the fruits such as bananas!
After the talk, Luise and David signed their new Smoothie Cookbook, accompanied by her lovely little daughter Elsa, who joined them and made every ones day by signing the cookbooks with little hearts.
That was my first week of London. I hope you guys enjoyed reading this and if you have any recommendations or questions or things you want me to write about: Leave a comment below or message me on Instagram.
