Last Sunday I started my day with an early morning yoga session at Sky Garden. Not many people can say that they have worked out surrounded by fresh flowers and with 360-degree views of London, so it was a really nice change to my usual routine. Sky Garden is the perfect place for early birds, like me, to soak up the morning sun.
The flow of the yoga was pretty fast, leaving me breathless – but our yoga instructor had a lovely calming voice, making it easy to follow her. I’m not the greatest at Yoga, I do enjoy it and definitely don’t practice as much as I’d like.
After the class we headed to Beany Green, which is an Australian inspired cafe whose brunch menu is packed with healthy food and bold flavours. Make sure you sit outside as you can overlook Broadgate Circle.
You can choose to make your brunch bottomless but we fancied detoxing after our yoga session. I had an amazing smoothie, the yogi berry. It was so creamy and delicious, and it went down a treat.
I opted for the avocado toast which is served on fermented activated charcoal sourdough. Activated charcoal is meant to help whiten teeth, alleviate bloating and help with hangovers – it’s unusual and it tasted good but I won’t be incorporating it into my daily diet.
Scott went from the Bondi breakfast, which comprised two poached eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, half an avocado and a dollop of homemade chilli pesto on sourdough bread – admittedly I eat all the pesto as it went really well with my dish too. The bacon could have been crispier but it was all washed down with excellent coffee.
Beany Green is also the perfect place to refuel after hitting 1Rebel as both are in Broadgate Circle.
