There is no shortage of great places to eat around here, and we all know the kinds of things to avoid - fish and chips, full-fat curries – need I go on? If you're not sure what makes for a healthy meal, check out our 'Superfoods - Myth or Magic?' article for some guidance.
But where to get food that is the right side of fresh and fruity, without feeling like a deprivation? Here you go…
Iydea – A satisfying, beautifully-prepared plateful of lunchtime veggy delights and lovingly-made salads in North Laine.
Food for Friends - Affordable enough to appeal to students as well as locals, the food in this vegetarian restaurant is totally homemade using fresh, local produce.
Indian Summer – Authentic regional food that is full of flavour and sultry spices, while not swimming in the grease associated with many curries.
Another Indian-themed healthy option is Curry Leaf Cafe – dhal to die for and other treats (for veggies and meat-eaters alike) at its three branches across Brighton and Kemp Town. Or try Planet India for a great vegetarian menu.
Foodilic – the two branches (one in Brighton, one in Hove) focus on healthy salads, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan foods, plus fresh pastries and raw desserts.
And finally, Terre a Terre – Brighton’s classiest vegetarian restaurant. So iconic that people come from London especially to sample its delights. “Where vegetarianism is more about indulgence than abstinence,” says its website. I have never been there, but it is up there on my bucket list!
