One of the best parts about travelling is experiencing the local cuisine. In recent years, Paris has seen a number of healthy eateries open up, making it even easier for you to eat well while eating out.
From sit-down restaurants to cafes perfect for a quick bite, we’ve rounded up the best healthy eats in Paris.
Maisie Cafe covers all its healthy-eating bases with a seasonal menu that’s vegan, gluten-free and organic. With a focus on nutrient-rich foods designed to strengthen your immune system, this cafe is a great place to go when you need a healthy pick-me-up. The cold-pressed fruit and vegetable juices, fruit and granola and breakfast bowls are the perfect way to start the day, and you can’t go wrong with one of the many soups or salads at lunchtime. For a guilt-free dessert, treat yourself to an energy ball — raw truffles made from vegetable pulp, raw cocoa, dates and cashews, scented with coffee, coco or matcha. Fashion industry insiders and magazines — including the Vogue Paris team — are all fans of Maisie Cafe.

If you’re looking for something on the lighter side or a snack to-go, rather than a big sit-down meal, head to Wild & the Moon. The menu is 100 percent organic (with many vegan options) and made up of treats designed to bring customers closer to nature. There’s an impressive selection of smoothies, cold-pressed juices and hot and cold coffee drinks, as well as sweet and savory bowls, snacks, including veggie crackers, guacamole and kale chips, and desserts like raw chocolate pudding and banana cake. Wild & the Moon is another popular spot amongst bloggers and fitness instructors, like Clotilde Chaumet, founder of Très Intense Hip Hop Yoga.

Season Paris Of all the healthy eateries on this list, Season Paris has the largest, most varied menu. The restaurant includes healthy versions of classic dishes like pancakes and avocado toast for breakfast and vegetarian burritos, pizzas and burgers. There’s also a selection of acai bowls and cold-pressed juices, salads and desserts. Gluten-free diners will have plenty of options too, as most of the breads and wraps are made without gluten. Season is popular among food and lifestyle bloggers like Kevin Ragonneau and Aleka Knappe and fitness instructors like Clio Pajczer.

Noglu’s menu changes every day, based on what’s in season and the chef’s creativity, and is entirely gluten-free. While the restaurant features dairy-free, vegan and vegetarian options, meat lovers will also find several dishes to enjoy, such as the classic burger and fries and a fish dish that changes daily. Other lunch and dinner options include soup, quiche, salad, vegetarian lasagna and a selection of pastries. Frame magazine, Le Fooding and Conexão Paris have all given NOGLU their stamp of approval.
