All-Vegan Café Natural Healthy Foods to Open in Birmingham City
This month, Birmingham’s city centre will become home to a vegan and sugar-free café, called Natural Healthy Foods. According to Birmingham Mail, founder Simon McCarroll initially opened a vegan shop with the same name in Digbeth in September of 2015, and decided to extend that success to an eatery on Suffolk Street. He stated:
“Opening an all vegan café in the heart of the city seemed like the next step for us. We’ve already built up a strong customer base at our Digbeth store, but we’re now looking for the next challenge, stocking our regular products along with having a variety of hot meals available which will be served fresh from our in-store kitchen.”
The cafe will also feature gluten-free and raw organic vegan options, “alongside a range of beverages like Kombucha.” McCarroll hopes that the menu makes people realize how delicious healthy and plant-based food can be, and stated:
“Many people see the term vegan, and can often stereotype this with bland, flavourless food, but that’s simply not the case. We just want to raise awareness of the health benefits that natural food gives us and also how tasty everything can be, so we hope people come along and try it out.”
Some of the delicious options noted in the article include smoky black bean chilli with walnut chorizo, creamed red rice risotto with sage roasted butternut squash, chilli kelp and black fungus mushrooms, with sugar-free desserts including probiotic dragonfruit cheesecake, raw key lime pie and spirulina cacao brownie. Natural Health Foods café is set to open its doors this month.
