18 Jan New Year, New you: What to do
Whether you’re doing Veganuary, Dry January or just want some brunch inspiration, take a look at this list of the best brunch spots for each “New You”.
Specialising in guilt-free food. Redemption’s entire brunch menu is 100% vegan, gluten-free and low in natural sugars (don’t worry those with sweet tooths will still be satisfied with the buckwheat pancakes served with natural coconut yoghurt, seasonal fruit and maple syrup). Meanwhile, the savoury side of the menu includes plates such as the roasted sweet potato and red onion hash as well as the sweetcorn and red pepper pancakes. It’s healthy food with the best intentions. Who said you couldn’t have it all?
