As much as we all love a Friday night pizza or a trip to the drive through, sometimes it feels good to be good to our bodies. That’s where our guide to the best, quickest and healthiest foods around town comes in. Eating mindfully doesn’t have to be boring – and can sometimes be as easy as calling in at the takeaway. Here’s some inspiration…

Kettlebell Kitchen

Boasting locally sourced ingredients and a comfortable, fast food setup – it’s easy to like Kettlebell Kitchen. With meal plans available for whatever your goal, tasty substitutes for classic wraps and burgers and an array of options for vegetarian and vegan diets, there’s no harm in seeing what they have to offer. A big part of eating unhealthily is the ease and convenience of the fast food setting, but Kettlebell Kitchen gives you the best of both worlds!

Gone are the days of a bland salad, along with their smoothies you’ll be perfectly satisfied and feel all the better for it.

Vertigo Vegan Eatery

Plant based diets are great for many reasons, the main being they tend to be healthier than the rest. Vertigo Vegan Eatery provides delicious vegan creations that even the most dedicated meat eater could warm to, catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whenever you’re in town there will be something available to try at both their Cross Street and Jack Rosenthal Street locations, so don’t discount vegan just yet!

The Food Well

Although only available in Salford, it’s worth dropping in to try The Food Well’s food and drink options as they’re good for ‘mind, body, and soul’. Brunch, lunch, coffee and juice are available during the day, offering creative granola bowls, along with more classic options like steak and eggs, but with a twist. Their zen restaurant also houses cocktail soiree Firefly at night, providing tipples and tapas until late. Whether you’re hungry on-the-go or out for the night, The Food Well is at your service.

Uncomplicated, simple, wholesome and healthy food is the name of the game at Chop’d, at affordable prices too. £4.75 will get you a falafel and hummus salad, joined by a myriad of options for your perfect lunch, while picky eaters can even build their own.
