Our nutritionist-developed vegan delivery package is a great option for those that are looking to maintain a vegan diet but struggle to get all the necessary nutrients, or just struggle to find the time to shop, cook and prepare meals.

Smoothie Bowls at the Delis

Blitzed and blended, bright and beautiful smoothie bowls bursting with flavours as bold as their colour. We are introducing smoothie bowls at our delis, of which there are four different flavours. The Coconut Dragon is the most fuchsia bowl you've ever seen. And it really does taste as good as it looks! Other flavours include Berry Oat, Avocado Spirulina and Acai Berry. These will be available to enjoy all day long.

Top Tips Relating to Male Health

While unfortunately your diet cannot prevent, or rid you of certain illnesses, there are some key ways men can improve their health by changing the way they eat, in particular to deal with prostate problems, fertility and impotence.

New Grab-and-Go Salad Range

One in three Britons sit down to EXACTLY the same lunch EVERY day. A further 70% admit they are stuck in a lunch rut, with ham sandwiches emerging as the most likely midday meal we eat on repeat. DON’T SETTLE! We make eating healthy food easy, and we don’t want you to have to think about it. Eating well should be that simple. Our food will satisfy your nutritional need as well as your hunger.

It's the perfect food if you are looking for more energy, trying to break bad habits or just looking for a nutrition boost. 

Your Post Holiday Reset

It’s easy to fall off the bandwagon while on holiday, what with airport meals, piña coladas and not a single home cooked meal. Not to mention our motivation levels seeming to peak at swanning around on inflatable swans. And this down time is COMPLETELY FINE. A few days of indulgence is not going to do any lasting damage, so long as we make sure to regain the balance post-holiday. Here’s how.

Sunset Sweats with Detox Kitchen

We have made it our mission this summer to get more people exercising outdoors, reaping the benefits of al fresco workouts in a relaxed and social environment. As such we have pulled together a 10-session series, ranging from yoga, pilates, HIIT and even trampolining. Kicking off the series on July 5th is Lottie Murphy, pilates instructor and holistic health coach. Also on the agenda is Adidas ambassador Zanna van Dijk, Hollie Grant (Founder of The Model Method) and ((BOUNCE)).

Top tips for beating a summer hangover

While the British summertime has graced us with plenty of opportunity to talk about our favourite subject recently (i.e. the weather, i.e. “Isn’t it supposed to be summer? It’s been raining for two WHOLE weeks now!”), there has also been a whole lot of talk about hangovers. In particular, those ensuing a Pimms-fuelled staff summer party.

We are thrilled to have partnered with natural skincare brand Balance Me on the ultimate summer skin package. For the first fifty customers to book onto one of our detoxes using the code 'balanceme' at checkout, you will also receive a full-size BB Natural Perfection SPF25 cream with your detox!

Eat your way to healthy skin

One rule definitely doesn’t fit all when it comes to skin. I find the best thing to do is simply try new things, be conscious of the changes you make and register how they affect your skin. Read our top tips on what to eat for healthy, glowing skin.

A Matter of Facts

In a society where we are bombarded with so many mixed messages about what we should eat, what is good for us and what isn't, if there is one inexplicable truth, it is that facts are facts. We are really proud of how we source and prepare our food, so we wanted to share a few facts with you.

On The Flexibility Of Our Detoxes, Plus How To Get The Best Deal

Our detoxes were designed with busy schedule in mind, which is why we offer a fully-flexible calendar whereby you can choose the exact days you would like your food delivered. You can also make some great savings if you buy your detoxes for the year in one transaction, and you don't have to use them straightaway.

How social media is affecting our relationship with food

Being very much embedded in the world of healthy eating we see every angle of how social is impacting peoples food choices, but also how it is shaping the way we look at our diet and how it makes us feel. Having a healthy relationship with food is so important, so we've devised a few practical tips for disconnecting from social when it comes to food.

In praise of the cherry

Upping our berry intake is firmly on the to-do-list, but maybe it’s time to put a little focus on the cherry. Cherries can put a smile on your face ten miles wide, so you’re in luck that they’re coming into season. They’ve got a multitude of nutritional benefits, not to mention they taste delicious too.

5 Minutes With... Alex Wright, Co-Founder of Dash Water

Dash was set up by two friends Alex and Jack, on a mission to encourage people to start drinking more water and stop throwing away deliciously-wonky fruit and veg. Here, we meet one of the half, Alex.

Now stocking: Dash Water

Food waste is a subject we care passionately about as a business, so we are thrilled to now be stocking Dash water. “British sparkling water infused with wonky fruit and veg” is the strapline. Crafted in the UK by Alex and Jack, we love that they are fighting food waste in a fun, and sustainable way. The lemon flavour is definitely my favourite.

3 days on the Protein Package, a Review

Working at Detox Kitchen I am lucky enough to eat a lot of delicious, healthy food. And I try to cook from scratch as much as possible for my meals at home. But don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy a sourdough pizza and an Aperol spritz. So detoxing is not something that necessarily comes naturally to me. This is why I wanted to document my experience on one of our detoxes to show that anybody and everybody can benefit from one.

My Day on a Plate, Lily Simpson founder of Detox Kitchen

So this is me on a good day. And I tend to try and have a few more good days in the lead up to a holiday, because let’s face it, everyone wants to look and feel good on holiday.

Grazia x Detox Kitchen Unplugged Event Series

We've teamed up with Grazia for a series of morning events to celebrate their Unplugged Issue. Grazia’s Unplugged issue is asking their readers to get switched on to logging off and disconnect to reconnect – trying to break the habit of absent-mindedly checking, flicking and swiping, by consciously taking time off from our digital world and social media to reclaim real life.

Corporate Wellness is a No Brainer

Every company wants productive, engaged and present employees. Every company wants their staff to feel energised throughout the day. Every company wants happy employees. We believe that a lot of the above can be achieved through a healthy, balanced diet. And there’s proof.

Coffee Shop Snacks and Hidden Sugars

Lily Simpson Speaks to Grazia Magazine

Make sure to pick up a copy of Grazia magazine today, including an interview and shoot with our founder Lily Simpson, as she discusses the trials and tribulations of setting up a business!

I’m a millennial and I’m a flexitarian

Our Founder Lily is a Vegetarian. I'm a Flexitarian. I’ve watched Cowspiracy and Leonardo Di Caprio’s documentary, I have read, and heard, the countless facts and figures in favour of a vegetarian lifestyle. But when push comes to shove, I won’t be giving up meat. And here’s why.

Becoming a Vegetarian

I watched Carnage. The person that told me to watch it said, be prepared, if you watch it you WILL turn veggie. I watched it. I am now a vegetarian. I have been for two months and I can’t see it changing. My older brother and mum watched it too, they are both now vegetarians. Needless to say, the humorous documentary by Simon Amstell resonated with me, and many others it would seem.

Lily Simpson Speaks to The Independent

"Lily Simpson, the chef and co-founder of Detox Kitchen, started her business with the simple and humble idea of making healthy food “really delicious”. She was far from the only one with that goal, but her strategy paid off and her success since launching in 2012, has been commendable."
