Some will say that it is just a trend, others see it as a necessary good, the truth is that every day there are more companies that dare to offer alternatives for a public that seeks change, and that beyond a trend, vegetarian, vegan, local and healthy food is here to stay.
A few years ago, it was not so easy to find restaurants and cafes that offered a menu with alternatives to animal products, today Barcelona has the luxury of having great places to eat healthy, with local products, and with vegan and vegetarian options.
Here is a list of 4 restaurants that have proven that eating healthy is the best choice we can make.
1. Flax & Kale
Eat better, be happier, live longer
Under this motto, Flax & Kale by renowned Chef Teresa Carles, is one of those places you will always want to return to. The menu reflects a healthy cuisine offering 80% plant-based products and the remaining 20% fish, mostly blue. Today, there are several restaurants in the city offering a creative menu, captivating, and above all with a lot of flavor.
The Flax & Kale group not only offers healthy food but also cares about its impact on the environment. They use renewable energy, all their packaging is compostable, they use Osmosis technology for water purification in all their restaurants and most importantly they promote a healthy, sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle.
