Where to Get Healthy Food in Colombo

2021 Jan 8

More often than not, many of us tend to find ourselves stuffing our faces with comfort/junk food. Don’t get me wrong; it’s amazing and does wonders for your soul, but usually, you end up with unwanted calories, feeling bloated. So if you are looking to put your junk food consumption on hold for a while and make your life healthier, here are a few places you can try out!

Get Your Juice On!

As of late, juice cleanses have been the latest trend that people are going crazy over. It won’t be easy, but your body will thank you for it once you are done. So here are a couple of places to get your juice on!

RAW

Contact – 077 771 0229

Website- www.rawsrilanka.com

RAW is a brand of 100% organic juices that are cold-pressed, locally sourced and Ayurvedic approved. They have quite the extensive menu, including flavourful combinations like ‘Golden Green’ (king coconut, matcha, pink salt and ambarella), ‘Ruby Red’ (beetroot, watermelon, king coconut, mint and chia seeds), and ‘Lose Some Pounds’ (oolong tea, ginger and honey).

The brand is also a favourite of Lankan fitness guru, Gaia Kodithuwakku, and rightfully so! According to her, the three day cleanse that she tried out changed her body, as her skin changed for the better, she got rid of 2.3 kg, it slimmed down her waist, and she felt super clean. It definitely helped with bloating, and if you follow her on social media, you’ll know that she absolutely loves it. But keep in mind that each body is different! And your experience will be a unique one.

They’ve got different cleanse packages to choose from as well;

  1. Classic RAW Cleanse (1 day + Weightloss 1L Tea)- LKR 4000
  2. Lazy RAW Cleanse (1 day)- LKR 2350
  3. Pro RAW Cleanse (2 days)- LKR 6350
  4. The Advanced RAW Cleanse (3 days)- LKR 9350
  5. The RAW Green Cleanse (1 day)- LKR 3350

You can place your order on their website at least 24 hours prior, so you can have fresh juice delivered to you on time!
