Leon — Great food on the go
One of my favourite haunts when I take trips to London has to be Leon. One of the more well known food places I think it's important not to look past the abundance of their stores.
Living up North (out in the sticks as I do) it's more difficult to get a quick healthy lunch than it is down South, so I really appreciate being able to grab fast but nutritious food when I'm out and about. I'm used to having to cook everything that's good for me so I'm sure you can imagine the relief when someone else hands it over to me in minutes…
Earlier this year I tried out their lunch menu and got hooked. The juices are on form (always find myself going back to my old favourite — carrot, apple and ginger) and the food is unreal. Fresh and tasty as well as being healthy, aka the way forward for fast food.
Leon are yet another establishment that prove eating well isn't difficult, and doesn't have to cost the earth. We need this culture to keep increasing and giving us better options than junk food, especially when you're rushing to grab some lunch because you're working your ass off and didn't have time to meal prep! Being busy and busting your balls shouldn't mean compromising on health. Especially through food.
So if you're finding yourself struggling to keep up on looking after yourself in this age of 14+ hour working days, don't settle for anything less than you deserve. If you have healthy food outlets around you then use them and let's encourage more of it!
Put down the chicken nuggets… save them for the taxi ride home on a Saturday night (or Sunday morning…). You no longer need to sacrifice taste for health.
