So I touched down in London town yesterday afternoon and I must say it has been a lovely little getaway thus far. Time for repo with my mother has been more than much needed and enjoying it at my favorite places has made it key. That being said, today I got to eat at my favorite healthy institution here in this darling city: Deliciously Ella.

We arrived at midday hungry and ready to eat. Not only was the staff incredibly friendly and the ambiance immersed by solely good vibes, but the food was just to die for. I did a mixed plate – quinoa perfectly seasoned, smooth and creamy hummus, a incredibly flavorful falafel with curried cauliflower (@jjchase for foodporn). All I can say is wow. This combination was not only a dream, but likewise organic, vegan and gluten free(?) Ella takes all of her recipes seriously, and it shows. Everything is 100% plant based and catered to anyone’s faves (in the healthiest possible way). My mum enjoyed chili with red cabbage and corn bread. Oh la la! Did she leave a happy camper. Not to mention Deliciously Ella spent most of the day with us. I later enjoyed a Fiery Organic Ginger Shot alongside a ROOTS Juice (composed of carrots, apples, beets, lemon and ginger), yum. Mum had a peanut cookie, I DID try and wondered why I didn’t take one too.

Ella herself has an incredibly story and it makes me feel truly blessed and grateful to enjoy her food and products. Don’t forget that her London restaurants are not her only gig. Ella has a bunch of other incredible products that have the same nutritional value system available in countless markets (for everyday enjoyment). She even has cookbooks. Click below for more info. (P.s. Ella, can you open in Paris soon?)

So there are some of us that love vegan food, (even carnivores like me) and others that just can’t seem to wrap their heads around it. How can something so simple and light taste good? Sol Semilla will help you answer all of these questions. I had the pleasure of enjoying my Sunday brunch there, and I rediscovered my love for this organic plant-based, vegan restaurant.

While there are a variety of options on their menu, including copious soups and delightful juices, I decided to go with their daily special. This very special mixture of vitamin rich vegetables and grains was not only satisfying but really really delicious. Sol Semilla features a warm and raw plate, which change daily (in function to seasonal vegetables) in addition to their traditional menu. My plate comprised a mixture of salad, a delicious butternut squash soup, caviar of acai (yup it’s a thing) and rice plaf. Not to mention everything was (and always is) organic. Sol Semilla even has their own brand of natural elements and powders that will cure any ailment. These items are available in many Parisian organic foodstores, at the organic market at Saint Germain, and of course at their restaurant location and on their site. Go visit them – Sol Semilla , 23 Rue des Vinaigriers, 75010 Paris. P.s. Don’t forget to visit their blog where you will also find inventive recipes and well-being tips.
