Good Life Eatery

by Khushboo on May 29, 2014

Most people seem to hate on Mondays.  I kinda like ‘em…even more so when they starts off on a delicious note.  I heard about the Good Life Eatery a few months ago when I was in Mumbai and already knew I would love it.  It’s described as London’s hottest new healthy eating café and cold-pressed juice bar.

My friend Ria & I decided to walk there to work up an appetite  After an hour of strolling through Hyde Park with umbrellas in one hand and Google Maps in the other, we finally reached…starving.   I have a love-hate relationships with places like Good Life Eatery- I love the array of options but hate not enough stomach space to try them all ;)!

Whilst debating on our orders, we shared a Quinoa Scone.  This picture doesn’t do justice to the amount of flavor & texture…so much that we didn’t even miss the jam or clotted cream.

 After much contemplation, I rolled with the Sun Salutation Bowl:

Looks divine, doesn’t it?  Wait till I walk you through it: Red & white quinoa with kale & almond pesto, sweet potato cream, 2 poached eggs & toasted pumpkin seeds.  I can’t wait to recreate this at home soon!

 Ria went with the Skinny Benedict: Two poached eggs, avocado, almond pesto, cherry tomatoes & yogurt saffron sauce on sunflower rye.  Both were equally delicious.

I was pleasantly stuffed by the end of it!  For the sake of digestion, I walked the journey back home too.  Between the Acai Breakfast Bowl, Chia Pudding made from coconut yogurt, lactose-free Carrot Cake  & Incredible Hulk smoothie, I definitely will be going back to Good Life Eatery soon!

Quinoa scone – do you know if they used quinoa flour or cooked quinoa? I made mocha chocolate chip quinoa scones on Monday with quinoa flour…but tried making mango muffins with same flour and they turned out NAH-STY! Now about that sweet potato cream…with the poached eggs ..good golly so yum!
Un-intentional exercise is the best – every time we try out a new area/park/trail to walk or run, I have this unexplainable ability to get lost which is the only way we get unintentional exercise 🙂

Ohh I am not too sure about the quinoa scone but I will definitely ask next time I go…definitely something I’d love to make at home!

That place looks fantastic! I would have been all over that bowl too. The sweet potato cream is intriguing! I wonder what it’s made of…

I started off my week by starting a new rotation in public health. It’s my last one – only 6 more weeks to go!

I definitely want to recreate that sweet potato cream at home, hopefully it will be worth sharing :)! Congrats on the new rotation!

Umm, do you think they would ship me that scone? It sounds so good!

Haha if so, I will definitely place an order too ;)!

Never made it here during my trip to London – hopefully next time!

That egg dish you got sounds incredible – sweet potato cream?! Need to recreate that at some point!

OMG that looks amazing! I love finding new recipes and of course, new healthy eateries – so happy that that’s a trend now! If you come to NYC, you need to try One Lucky Duck or Hu Kitchen – both so healthy and delicious!

I love Mondays actually. I start off with a workout at Physique 57 and then some oatmeal with banana, honey and walnuts at LPQ after, to kind of get some chill time before the crazy work week starts! 🙂

I am dying to come to NYC- hopefully next year and you will be there 🙂

Right, this is in Chelsea and I have never seen it?!? I am in Chelsea every other weekend – do I walk around blindfolded? Haha. Can we pretty please have our next coffee date here?

Sweet potato cream?!? Omg I can’t even — what was it made out of? And you know what I just realized? I haven’t had quinoa in ages. Must change that — love that grain! Or seed… Whatever 😛

Time to whip up some quinoa this weekend :)!

Any plans for London in the near future?

Sadly, no. 🙁

Sweet potato cream sauce?! I need to find some way to recreate THAT dish at home too 😛 This sounds like London’s answer to Native Foods Cafe!

Khushboo May 31, 2014 at 1:01 pm

In that case, I am already a fan of Native Foods Cafe 😀

You would adore this place 😀

I’m still salivating over that breakfast. Sun Salutation indeed. It’s like an orgasm on a plate. Plus, I need that sweet potato cream in my life.

Orgasm on a plate- no true words were ever spoken 😉
