Healthy Foods You Have to Try This Month

Eating clean has never been so popular. More and more people are wanting to lead a healthy lifestyle and we want to help - here’s our essential guide to staying good while eating out.

 Eating out is probably the biggest hurdle people face. It can be hard to stay on the wagon when everyone around you is indulging in delicious, carb-packed meals. In fact, just thinking about it is enough to fling yourself into a sea of junk-food. It also doesn’t help when your mate Pete is moaning that you should ditch your efforts. But stay strong and ignore Pete (Pete doesn’t know anything). The fact is that you can treat yourself and still stay healthy. There are tons of restaurants in Liverpool ONE that offer heavenly but healthy food. Don’t believe us? First stop: Wahaca.

Salad doesn’t have to be depressing – Wahaca’s Super-charged Salad is packed with spice and all things nice! With avocado, feta, organic British spelt, pumpkin seeds and jalapeno-pickled carrot lying invitingly in a crisp tortilla bowl, this is salad with a kick. If Mexicans not your thing, Jamie’s Italian has a lot to offer. Full of delicious, healthy options, it’s a great place for a family dinner. Its Veggie Tagliatelle Bolognese is truly tasty; it’s rich ragu is bursting with flavour, while its pangrattato and veggie parmesan topping gives the dish a fruity finish. It’s also packed with protein and contains 3 of your 5 a day – win-win!

If you’re in the mood for something a bit more exotic, Yo! Sushi offers a trip to Asia without the jet-lag. Their Curry Beef Ramen features seared beef and vegetables in a fragrant curry broth topped with chilli sesame paste and ramen noodles or rice is fresh, full of flavour and feel-good! Another great Asian dish is Bill’s Roasted Aubergine, Lentil and Chickpea Dhal. It’s mixture of juicy cherry tomatoes, coriander chutney, toasted almonds and grilled flatbread, is as comforting as they come – perfect after a long day at work!

With its dramatic interior, warm welcome and central location, Liverpool ONE’s Cosy Club on Paradise Street should be on your ‘must visit’ list. If you’re looking for noodles with oodles of punch, try their Oriental Sesame Noodles. Packed with baby spinach, pak choi, red chilli, marinated carrot, sesame dressing and beef or herb-marinated chicken or halloumi, it’ll leave you feeling great. For a filling, low-calorie meal, you can’t beat Wagamama’s Chicken Ramen. This minimalist classic consists of noodles in a chicken soup, grilled chicken, seasonal greens, menma and spring onions, proving that sometimes the simple things in life really are better.

Pizza on a healthy food list? Yep, you heard us right. Zizzi’s skinny pizzas are great if you love pizza but not the calories. Made on a wholemeal, white and spelt base and served with a delicious Italian naked slaw, these pizzas all come in at under 550 calories and can be enjoyed with great views over Chavasse Park! One of the most prized restaurants in Liverpool is the multi award winning Lunya. Dedicated to producing authentic Catalan and Spanish food, its dishes are both delicious and nutritious. Their new Fideua de verduras – Veggie Mini Paella to you and me –  is made with market fresh vegetables and is cooked on arrival, making it even more healthy!
