It seems like there are healthy food options everywhere you look in LA! I love trying out new dishes and getting kitchen inspiration, and I have been blown away by the vegan cuisine here. Vegan is hot! These are some of my favourite vegan must-eats:

Cafe Gratitude – everything about this cafe is fresh and healthy with a beautiful presentation. Love the ambiance!

Real Food Daily – gourmet, good-for-you dishes with multiple LA-area locations

Beaming Cafe – for smoothies and acai bowls. I also love their vegan protein bites and granola.

Backyard Bowls – delicious savoury and sweet bowls

Erewhon – a mecca for healthy vegan fare! They have an amazing hot bar, salad bar and a deli full of vegan meals.

Earth Bar – a must for smoothies and acai bowls

The Butcher’s Daughter – this Venice hot spot has a delicious kale salad

Moon Juice – divine smoothies and juices in Venice

Shima Sushi – incredible vegan options in a sushi restaurant! ˜
