5 healthy restaurants in Pretoria

Brought to you by Greenis Smart Power Blender

‘Healthy’ means something different for everyone, but more and more restaurants are gaining some sort of health focus. Here are some great eateries where you can feast on dishes packed full of flavour but lacking gluten, sugar, meat and more.

Afro-boer (Equestria)

Afroboer isn’t a health-food spot as a whole but is really good at catering for specific needs. Many menu items are gluten- and lactose-free (even some of the decadent cakes and breads), vegan and vegetarian. The detox salad is fantastic and so full of crunch and flavour, you would never guess it was actually good for you. It’s filled with fennel, toasted almonds, cucumber, fresh herbs, smoky coconut, fermented beetroot and a spicy nut mayo dressing. The sweet potato granola is a breakfast winner served with fresh paw-paw, organic honey and yoghurt.

Cafe Zing (Menlyn)

Cafe Zing offers healthy options all around, from grass-fed hormone-free meat to locally sourced organic lettuce and sprouts, and bread and cakes made from stone-ground flour. There is a range of pasta sauces on offer, all available with wheat-free pasta. The vegetarian burger with butternut-and-lentil patty is sure to impress, and the raw cacao-and-almond cluster is afternoon-snacking perfection.

Geet (Brooklyn) ?

This popular Indian eatery takes good care of its vegan and vegetarian diners. There is an entire section dedicated to vegan curries and the vegetarian options are plentiful. Expect loads of fresh vegetables, coconut and aromatic spices.

La Coco C (Silver Lakes)

La Coco C is a well-known favourite in Pretoria’s vegetarian/vegan community. The menu is diverse and offers a ton of healthy options. Granola with grilled pineapple or golden chai spice for breakfast? Yes, please! There’s also a delectable vegan chickpea omelette. For lunch, why not try one of the low-calorie, gluten-free burrito bowls? The Vegan Burger bowl comes topped with a black bean burger patty and vegan cheddar, while meat eaters will love the Skinny Lamb bowl with slow-cooked lamb and tzatziki. La Coco offers gluten-free bread too, which makes the toasted sandwich selection even more tempting for those cutting down on gluten. Fresh-pressed juices are a fan favourite.

Pure (Colbyn)

Along with the many salads and healthy breakfast options, Pure also offers an entire paleo and banting menu. Low-carb pancakes, a pimp-your-omelette section, sweet-potato-and-chorizo frittata and an incredible Thai chicken curry will all delight your taste buds without any of the guilt.

Beautiful food can only taste good! #purecafepretoria
