I got a bit bored of writing about Malaysia so let's pop back to London today to talk a bit about healthy eating and that kind of stuff. This month hasn't been a great month for me in terms of eating well. Orlaith and I have been passing colds back and forth since we got back from Malaysia and my energy has been slightly zapped, plus being on a major budget, eating well got pushed way down my list of priorities.
In a week (or two) I'm going to be doing a cleanse and a couple days of juicing, and after attending some yoga classes over the last fortnight (I had to absolutely force myself to go to a couple of them) I can feel myself slowly getting back into the right mind set.
I went out for lunch with a vegan friend the other day. I always enjoy eating out with her because I get an 'excuse' to eat healthier, whether my mind's into it or not. This time we went to a raw food restaurant in Notting Hill called Nama. I was really interested to taste their food but the menu scared me a tiny bit.
My friend recommended the raw pizza for me and she went for the Thai curry. When our plates arrived at the table I was a bit confused by my weird looking pizza dish. That's not a pizza I was thinking to myself. One bite into my raw pizza and I was totally hooked. It was delicious! No, it doesn't taste like a pizza but I wasn't really expecting it to. But it did taste very good. And a taste of my friends raw curry confirmed it: Raw food is really good!
I'll definitely be heading to Nama again to try more delights from their menu. There's nothing nicer than coming away from a delicious lunch knowing that your body's probably healthier than when you went in. Visit Nama's website here to find out more about their food.
