Paris is notorious for being a city of indulgences. From desserts to designer clothing, the French capital offers the finer things in life. But as everyone knows, too much of something can be a bad thing. And it applies to food as it does to everything else. Make no mistake: haute cuisine
isn't bad for you. But it does have a lot of meat to it. If you want to go healthier with what you eat, why not go full vegan? Restaurants like Wild & the Moon, Soya, Mesa, and Rose Bakery will still satisfy if you do!

Wild & the Moon
From what started out as a run-of-the-mill cafe that offers healthy coffee and tasty smoothies, Wild & the Moon eventually became one of the hippest healthy hangouts in Paris. Their latest restaurant on Saint-Honoré is a particular favorite among the foodies. Beyond the organic beverages that Wild & The Moon is known for, you can get all kinds of vegan treats here. Think veggies bowls filled with chickpeas, sweet potatoes, and marinated mushrooms. Or granola bars that provide the perfect crunch for an early morning brunch. All these and more are on offer here at the Wild & The Moon!

in Paris, Mesa is a vegan bar-restaurant you won't want to miss! For one thing, their Latin American menu is to die for! You can start with some savory Loaded Mushroom Focaccia for breakfast to get your taste buds spinning so early in the day. Later, the salad of the day can refresh your palate unlike any other. And come dinnertime, some vegan tacos would make for a great end to your day. Oh! And don't forget dessert! Fermented cashew yogurt with fresh fruits, anyone?

of Paris, Soya is a vegan canteen you won't want to miss! What they serve here is simply delightful, each healthier than the next! If you're up for some Middle Eastern flavors, try their hummus with dukkah. It's an exceptional starter that will whet your appetite unlike any other. Some Thai salad with sweet & sour sauce is just what the doctor ordered if you were craving some Asian cuisine. It's a perfect contrast to the French and European dishes Paris often offers.

La Guinguette d’Angèle
Truthfully speaking, La Guinguette d’Angèle isn't 100% vegan. They also serve some vegetarian dishes for those who haven't gone full-vegan. But regardless of that, all of what they offer remain as healthy and as organic as ever! They're not one of the finest vegan restaurants in Paris for nothing! Some Gazpacho cucumber mint soup is the perfect way to start your meal—warm, fresh, and oh so fulfilling.

And to top it all off, some detoxifying juice will help you wash all that food away!
