After spending our days in Helsinki dodging raindrops we were spoilt with a few sunny days in Stockholm to explore. So we went online to research Stockholm’s Paleo, organic, healthy and clean eating destinations. We were shocked to find there weren’t a great number of choices, but thankfully we came across Doctor Salad.
After setting out from our hotel for a wander through picturesque Gamla Stan (Old town), we decided to venture across to Östermalm to try Doctor Salad for ourselves and see if all of their glowing reviews were too good to be true.
While Skye made a beeline for the fresh juice cabinet, I asked the very friendly girl behind the counter which salad she would recommend. She quickly suggested the most popular salad; LYXLÅDAN (125 SEK). Just from the ingredients I could easily see why this was their number one. Warm smoked salmon, quinoa, mixed salad leaves, beetroot, carrot, snow pea sprouts, sesame seeds, broccoli and red onion dressed with lime juice. We grabbed one each and paired it with a Go Green Juice to enjoy street side in the sun. As expected, both the salad and juice were not only special, but the servings were so generous that neither of us could finish and we opted for a doggy bag to take our leftovers back to the hotel.
Doctor Salad’s ethos is to provide “nutrient rich food, drinks, snacks and dessert options with delicious and nurturing superfoods to fuel body and mind.” Their dishes are made using almost 100% organic ingredients, free from processed ingredients, sugar, gluten, and lactose. If you aren’t friends with salmon or green juice, there is a whole range of salads on offer as well as gluten free wraps, breakfast bowls and a range of snacks and desserts. Doctor salad has created a casual dining experience; a place you can visit for a healthy and delicious meal at any time of day.
