There’s a new pop-up in Chelsea called High Mood Food at Duke of York Square. It’s an artisanal café that focuses on energising and immune boosting food. In a nutshell, it’s mood food that nourishes both the brain and the gut.
They have a great menu though I still haven’t tried their Bulletproof coffee: Cru coffee, coconut oil with grassfed butter. High Mood Food’s normal coffee is amazing. I tried having a flat white with hazelnut milk for the first time here. It’s a lot creamer than having it with almond milk.
One of High Mood Food’s other drinks is Kombucha created by Wild Fizz.
As you can see from the label below, this ginger flavoured drink also has turmeric, black pepper and green tea. I drank mine in the morning sun and it’s a very refreshing drink that’s filled with friendly bacteria. This raw sparkling tea contains “the finest organic Sencha tea from Japan, organic cane sugar, a home grown S.C.O.B.Y & starter liquid, (basically old Kombucha). Through fermentation, [its] S.C.O.B.Y (or symbiotic colony of yeast & bacteria) chomps on the tea & sugar and produce Kombucha – a drink full of gut friendly bacteria, vitamins, enzymes, acids and antioxidants.” [source]
What interested me initially about Kombucha was that it’s also alkalising as well as all natural and low sugar. But as I said before, it’s also a refreshing drink. And it’s definitely one to try.
