Gallic Goes Green

April 13, 2017
Hottest New… Healthy Eats
Indulgent Gallic cooking doesn’t exactly conjure up a healthy lifestyle, with all that butter, creamy sauce, meat and frites, but Paris is finally catching up with the clean-eating trend. When you’ve had your fill of foie gras, try these wholesome prettykins which will satisfy gourmet cravings with a clear conscience…

Juice bar and veg canteen Otium (9th) is all about cold-pressed, organic fruit and greens, with cute-named juices like ‘Let’s Get Lost’. Sip well-being shots or chai lattes while snacking on healthsome breakfast bowls, vegan sandwiches and energy balls. The simple brick, wood and white space ticks the style box.

Controversy-courting gluten-free bakery and restaurant Noglu (7th) boasts three outlets in Paris and one in NY, promoting so-now GF flavours. Pop to this pastel-pink eatery with marble tables and cloud-shaped pendants for flower-topped cupcakes, fruity pastries, choc cake, avo toast brunch, salads for lunch or takeaway sandwiches for picnics.
Pâtissier extraordinaire Ophélie Barès’ Marcelle in Montmartre is your go-to for day-long coffee, fresh baked goods, and healthy, seasonal café comfort food. A skip from renovated Les Halles, it offers granola bowls, homemade cakes, quiche and salad, soups and detox avocado bowls in cosy boho surrounds, including plant-fringed pavement tables.

Like your tucker wild, plant-based, locally sourced and ethical? Wild & The Moon in hip-chic Le Marais prepares nourishing slow food that’s good for you and the planet, including cleansing organic cold-pressed juices, smoothies, herbal teas, soups, salads and snacks. Think raw superfoods with no refined sugar or nasties. Just say oui!
