Healthy Hangouts – Redemption Bar

Summer is fast-approaching and everyone is putting the gym hours in but no matter how hard you train you cannot out train a bad diet or habits. This month we checked out Redemption Bar Shoreditch a cozy Alcohol-free bar serving vegan, sugar / gluten – free food that lets you ‘spoil yourself without spoiling yourself’.

This whole concept of guilt-free dining is on the rise in London so all of us health-conscious foodies can actually claim back our social lives. We aren’t trying to convert anybody to veganism but the facts don’t lie – a diet containing less meat is not only good for your health, but could help save the planet!

So, we ate ourselves closer to this ecological dream by tucking into their ‘Californication’ dish, a really hearty bowl of sweet potato and rosemary hash, mushrooms and handfuls of spinach. To get the full redemptive experience we tried out their ‘Flu Fighter’ cocktail – a fiery mix of ginger, chilli, aloe vera, coconut water, orange, lemon, apple & elderflower. It’s great to be able to buy food that isn’t going to give us a stomach full of regret but rather fill us up with nutritional goodness. The entire lunch came to around £15 and it was money well spent considering the health benefits.
