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.
Eating healthily shouldn’t limit your options. Wahaca on College Lane offers a variety of healthy dishes that will make your tastebuds sing. Try their Corn & Black Bean Tostadas, with creamy guacamole, ancho chilli and feta on crisp tortillas, or treat yourself to a mouth-watering Sweet Potato & Feta Taquito made up of tasty roast sweet potato, feta and caramelized onion wrapped in a crispy blue corn tortilla with salsas and chipotle mayo – yum!
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 food that will make you feel super, try their Super Food Bowl. Packed with avocado and hummus with black quinoa, coconut and coriander rice, edamame beans, watercress pesto, lemony kale, heirloom tomatoes, soy and ginger cucumber and served with warm pitta, 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 – vegan mini paella to you and me – is made with market fresh vegetables and is cooked on arrival, making it even more healthy!
So, there you have it! You really can enjoy a diverse range of delicious food while eating out and stay healthy. Restaurants in Liverpool cater for all, so eat out and eat well this spring and summer!
