Regular exercise and real massage are two great ways to help improve and maintain a high quality of health. However, unless you eat and drink well, you are unlikely to feel or see the benefits. Good healthy food is the absolute core of healthy living and we are lucky to have many options in London to choose from when it comes to choosing where we buy our groceries and where we have our lunches. We explore five of our favourite best places to get natural fresh and healthy food in London.
Based on Kentish Town Road in North London, this is one of the best health food retailers in London. Packed full of organic, vegetarian and ecologically friendly produce, you can also source a wide variety of natural, homeopathic supplements here which match brilliantly with a course of healthy massage treatments. Earth Natural Foods also offer freshly made snacks and hot food from their counters every day.

From an organic farm based in the Cotswolds to three highly impressive and popular locations in London’s West End, Daylesford is our favourite on this list. A true passion for real food (just like our real massage), this establishment consistently serves up great dishes in their in-store cafes, with great produce to take home from their adjacent shops.

A bit of a cheat this one ... it's actually based in Edinburgh, not London! However, they have a great online shop and given the way the world of shopping has gone in recent years it seems churlish not to include them as they have such great products, prices and service. The Amazon of healthy organic food? Who knows, maybe!
