Street food is not just about cinnamon buns, savory crepes and cheeky burgers anymore; the healthy food scene grows stronger and stronger among London’s most famous markets. I visited a bunch of them and along with the help of personal trainer and nutritionist, Melinda Theore, discovered the healthy alternatives of London’s huge street-food palette.

If you’re not into fruity beverages, an iced tea is a good alternative. In comparison to canned iced-teas, this one is un-sweetened. “Use lemon, lime, and honey for natural sweetener or flavours”, Melinda proposes.
For a more chewy option, go for gluten-free coconut pancakes. They are as delish as they sound.
