Review: Healthy Afternoon Tea at Salad Pride

Happy Sunday dear followers!

Another Sunday has arrived and as always, I’m excited to share with you my latest discoveries! I know it might seem I’m becoming kind of boring always talking about London, but really, this city is so full of nice places and it’s so big that when I wander around sometimes it even feels like travelling to another city or country! Useless saying I’m enjoying my stay here πŸ™‚

This Sunday Β I’ll talk about a little Neighbourhood between Covent Garden and Soho, where once you’ll be walking around you’ll have the impression to be in a little country town with cozy houses and a vast choice of super healthy spots, I’m talking about Niel’s Yard! πŸ™‚


The feeling I had when I was walking through this area was like being in a healthy and body wellness dimension, indeed the restaurants/coffee shops you’ll find there are practically all gluten free and vegan, plus there are a few wellness centres and herbal medicine shop… a total heaven for your body! Of course I couldn’t miss trying one of the coffee shops!! The one I went to serves also lunch and breakfast but since I went there during tea time I enjoyed this AMAZING pistachio vegan & gluten free cheesecake with fresh pepper mint tea while my friend took a chocolate cheesecake Β (vegan & gluten free as well) and a hot chocolate with almond milk.

The place is called Saladpride, and everything you’ll find there is vegan and gluten free! Also, what I liked besides their dessert fridge is that most of their juices and cold teas are homemade πŸ™‚

The seated places inside are not that many but they do have a few tables also outside, anyway, take away is available! Prices are medium-high, but that’s kind of normal for a vegan and gluten free shop πŸ˜‰


I’ll have to admit that I’m very curious to try one of their breakfast or lunch bowls so it’s possible that I’ll update you about that πŸ™‚

The second topic I’d like to share with you today is staying motivated and focus. How many of you ever encountered this problem? I think everyone, maybe in different ways but it’s normal to have discouraging moments, even if you’re the most motivated person in the world!

About this, I found very interesting and reliable these Β “5 Tips for Finding Your Muse and Keeping it” written by Sierra. I think one of the most important points is #3 “surround yourself”, I’ve already talked about the topic in this post, but I’ll never be tired of saying how motivating and inspiring to be surrounded byΒ people with passion and focus. This doesn’t necessary mean friends or family, it could also be a group where there are people sharing your same interests, a teacher or a person you don’t know that well but you like his/her way of approaching things!

At the same time though, as Mara said in her “6 Tips to get Motivated and Inspired in Life” post, I do believe as well that alone time is very important. Indeed, as Mara suggested, you could use that time to create a vision board, writing down your goals, so dome research about people who achieved the goal you’re working for and read about how did they make it. All these activities are very useful to re-find motivation and eventually decide which actions to take.

Finally, as I wrote in this post, it’s totally normal having “no” moments, or even feeling a bit lost, but actually these moments are the key to get inspired again and maybe fins new ways which are even better than the earlier one to achieve your goals! πŸ™‚


I hope you enjoyed this Sunday post as much I enjoyed writing it!

Have a lovely day! πŸ™‚

    I love how London is full of little surprises. For some reasons, some of your pictures do not show up. πŸ™

    I enjoy and really like the little courtyard in Neal’s Yard too! I’ve only eaten at Wild Food Cafe, did some shopping at Neal Yard’s Remedies, and took advantage of the massages there. Haven’t had Salad Pride yet…glad to know it’s delicious! Did you see the pizza place there? The pizzas are huge and look so enticing! πŸ™‚

    I’m writing down the names of all the places you mention, and dreaming of being in London. And I do hope that “no moments” may help us get inspired again, cause I’m having lots of them. Thanks for sharing!
