Just a quick post about the lovely Roots and Fruits in Leeds. I’m starting a new job on Monday after a few months of unemployment, and having never worked in an office before, I desperately needed some ‘work’ clothes. So I went to Leeds with my wonderful Mum 🙂
As we are both eating paleo at the moment we decided to make the walk up to the Grand Arcade and have lunch at Roots and Fruits. It’s a bit out of the way if you’re down at the Trinity Centre, but well worth it if you want healthy, tasty and excellently priced food!
Mum had the falafel, which looked absolutely delicious! I wanted it too, but it had beans in it, and I’m allergic…damn shame. She said it was really scrummy.
I had a gluten free sandwich with harissa houmous, artichokes and rocket. It was so nice, and I was really impressed with the bread – it’s so unusual to find GF bread that has the texture and taste of normal bread – something that I miss so much.
(Yes, I ate half of it before I remembered to take a photo.)
My smoothie was lovely too, you can choose what you want off a big list of ingredients. I went for banana and berries, but wish I had spent a little longer to read the whole list and see the cinnamon, ginger and honey at the bottom! There’s always next time…
Where’s your favourite healthy eating spot?!
