There’s a new hotspot in town! And with town I mean around the corner of my home, in the heart of the Jordaan. So of course, I had no other choice but to check it out and treat myself to some well-deserved healthy food at HealthyBelly.
Recently, I found that there are more and more healthy options and restaurants coming to town, like Koffiespot for instance. Which is definitely a good thing! Nowadays, it is easier than ever to get yourself a healthy meal, which is not only good for your body but also for your mood as the options are also becoming better and better (read: mouth-watering good)!
The owner of HealthyBelly, Pieter Schothorst, is a racing driver. He knows like no other how important it is to eat healthy and stay fit. What I love most is that HealthyBelly serves comfort food(!), but then in a healthy way. Yes, you heard it right. Pancakes for breakfast and burgers for dinner, but then without the ‘guilt’.
So all the ingredients used at HealthyBelly are carefully chosen and from local suppliers, which is definitely a plus for me. In this way, they ensure that you get all the important nutrients you need to get through your day and they don’t add any preservatives or sugars. And whether you’re on a vegan, vegetarian, organic, lactose- or glutenfree diet, they have your back! Also, the super friendly staff will make you feel very welcome.
We ordered some yummy fresh juices, vegan banana oat pancakes, a delicious burger and potato fries on the side. And I hear what you’re thinking, about ‘healthy comfort food’, but let me assure you that the taste of it all makes my food-loving heart very, very happy! So, don’t stress, you’re definitely not compromising on the taste whatsoever.
If you’re in for a treat, this place is definitely worth a visit. Or a quick pit stop if you’re in a rush, as they also do take away. I can guarantee you that you’ll not only leave with a healthy but also very happy belly.
