Yasmine Larizadeh Co-Founder of health food haven The Good Life Eatery – March 2018Yasmine Laziradeh

Since its launch in 2013, The Good Life Eatery has become a go-to fixture on the London food scene, with locations in Chelsea, Belgravia and Marylebone. Proving that healthy doesn’t need to mean scary, The Good Life embraces the Brit’s love of hearty food with a breezy, health-conscious LA vibe. Accessibility was at the heart of the company’s vision: there was a gap in the market for a good-for-you eatery that isn’t all raw food and kale juice. Join us for a healthy brunch as Yasmine tells us her story.
