Sometimes it can be a challenge to stay healthy, as there are so many delicious foods out there that aren't necessarily good for us and we all indulge from time to time. When it comes to takeaways, we have to admit that once upon a time, it wasn't as easy to find a healthy meal.
Luckily, in the last few years we've been seeing more and more healthy options pop up, and we're happy that Deliveroo has also helped get those healthy meals straight to your door by allowing you to order from the best restaurants in town. Read on to find the healthiest takeaway options in London, from sushi to salad, so you can keep your diet on track.
Healthy and filling, Bababoo is a charcoal kebab kitchen, a stylish and eclectic restaurant serving Middle-Eastern cuisine made with British ingredients. The portion sizes are very generous so you won't be hungry soon after, and the food is anything but greasy so you won't have that bloated feeling afterwards. We recommend the Saffron and Orange Chicken Shish, one of their most popular dishes, consisting of wonderfully tender chicken thigh, chargrilled red pepper, homemade pickled chilli and yoghurt and topped with spicy harissa sauces. You can choose whether it is served on a grilled flatbread or fattoush salad - either way, it is a delicious and wholesome meal.
