There are very few places in Joburg that you can go where you know you will have a quality healthy meal, my go-to cafe is Grove Green, but I recently discovered that Belle’s Patisserie has a Skinny Menu. The menu is  an much needed respite for all of us who still want to eat cake and still fit into our jeans and is inspired by the Paleo and Banting diets.

Most of their goodies are Low GI, Gluten and sugar free, and there’s even a few options for the Vegans amongst us…The Kitchen Thief  I’m looking at you. The Skinny menu has breakfast, lunch and sweet treats on offer so whatever you’re in the mood for you’re covered, though if you ask me it would be a shame to go and not eat as many of their sweet treats as possible.

My recommendations are the New York Cheesecake and the Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes…and the quiche, and of course a visit to Belle’s wouldn’t be complete without a red velvet cupcake. If that’s not enough for you try out the Paleo Poppy Seed loaf and the Cauliflower Wrap. Basically, just go and eat it all!

What are your favourite healthy restaurants in Joburg? I’d love to try them out!
