The Healthiest Restaurants in Central London with Danielle Copperman

Danielle Copperman, model and founder of Qnola knows the stresses of Fashion Week all too well. "Tight and conflicting schedules don't allow for proper lunch breaks and during the season people end up relying on insufficient catering and sugary snacks to keep going." But during times of high stress and energy expenditure, it's more important than ever to eat "proper food and powerful ingredients that offer natural benefits." That's why this Fashion Week she teamed up with the Sanderson Hotel to create a Wake Up Well menu which features a seasonal cherry smoothie bowl, a hijiki poke bowl, sunshine salad, poached egg with avocado and beetroot sauerkraut. Tried and tested, we can vouch that it's absolutely delicious.

Here she lists her favourite healthy hangouts in London - "places you can pop into for a healthy takeaway or a replenishing meal at the end of a long day". In and around Soho, they make perfect lunch spots for Fashion Week.

Danielle Copperman's edit of the healthiest restaurants in central London


Sanderson London

Just above the hustle and bustle of busy Oxford Street, Sanderson is a welcome relief from the busy streets of Soho. The Wake Up Well menu, available until the 30 September, is the perfect way to enjoy natural, nourishing and delicious ingredients in a contemporary, relaxed environment.


50 Berners St, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 3NG


The Good Life Eatery

With several locations across London (Belgravia, Marylebone and Chelsea), this restaurant isn't just about serving healthy food but about inspiring you to eat it everyday - and making it as easy as possible to do so. They serve a wide range of products, supercharged smoothies, jumpin' juices and vibrant salad bowls.


69 Marylebone Lane, Marylebone, London, W1U 2PH


The Detox Kitchen

The first official Qnola stockist, Detox Kitchen is perfectly situated for grab-and-go dishes which don't compromise on either flavour or nutrition. Free from wheat, dairy and refined sugar, the menu is honest and accessible. For time-short customers, almond and vanilla snack pots are available to buy in store.


10 Kingly St, Soho, London, W1B 5PJ



Just around the corner from Oxford Circus, Ethos is a pay-by-weight restaurant specialising in vegetarian dishes. If you time it right, you can get discounted meals at the end of the day to save on waste at the same time.


48 Eastcastle St, Fitzrovia, London, W1W 8DX


Ahi Poké Fitzrovia

My favourite export to come out of Hawaii since brightly coloured shirts and Spam, poke has taken London by storm in 2016. Ahi Poke, near Fitzrovia, serves four signature bowls alongside a bespoke, build-your-own option. It's by far one of the best lunches in town.


3 Percy St, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 1DE


Selfridges Food Hall

A foodie mecca for healthy takeaway options, here you'll find everything under one roof, from sushi to salt beef and everything in between. Kill two birds with one stone and grab a bag of Qnola whilst you're there.


400 Oxford St, Marylebone, London, W1A 1AB
