Amsterdam is a great city for healthy eaters. It is packed with salad bars, smoothie bars and vegetarian and vegan restaurants. If you are planning to explore the city, but you are afraid your healthy diet will be destroyed by deep fried Dutch goodies – there is nothing to worry!
Favourite lunch spots in Amsterdam
Ceintuurbaan 149, 1072 GB | Westerstraat 34, 1015 MK, Amsterdam | Claude Debussylaan 35, 1082 MC | Open from Monday to Sunday 8:00 – 21:00.
SLA is a healthy salad bar that offers a great variety of salads, juices, soups and snacks. It is located at few different places across the city (see above). A bit overpriced, but you can definitely enjoy the food here. I like to make my own salad with all fresh ingredients that are available there. If I feel like having something small, I go for a homemade soup. Price: around 10 euro per salad.
