Kettlebell Kitchen in Ancoats has been on my list of places to visit for a while now. With the new craze for ‘clean eating’ thoroughly underway, this place is perfect for anyone wanting to eat out but eat clean. The menu is bursting with lean proteins, complex carbs and veggies for post-workout refueling and general healthy eating. Positioned just a few minutes walk away from Pure Gym, it has a great location. It isn’t too far from town either.
I visited Kettlebell Kitchen after a gym session as I thought what better time to go along! I was a little nervous that the place would be full of incredibly toned, incredibly shredded gym fanatics. However it was so accommodating to anyone and everyone. I rocked up still head to toe in gym gear. I was a little worry I’d feel a bit silly in bright gym leggings. Kettlebell Kitchen is so relaxed though and anything goes. There were people there who had come from the gym, people who hadn’t and the vibe was generally just very chilled out. Kettlebell Kitchen simply offers a place for healthy and delicious foods and there are no expectations.
I went for one of the famous kettleboxes. You basically can choose your own protein, carbs, veggies and any extras. At first I thought they seemed very expensive (£7.95 for a regular and £9.95 for a king). When you get your box though, you realise how much food actually comes in each box! They really do pack it in and we actually saved some and took it home for later. This isn’t perhaps a meal you could buy everyday unfortunately. For a healthy and satisfying treat every now and again though it is great.
If you don’t fancy a kettlebox, there are burgers, wraps and protein pizzas to choose from. If you’re there early in the morning there are lots of breakfast options too. Of course there are plenty of drinks to try, both hot and cold with protein shakes and smoothies galore. You’ll also probably spot the desserts. The Tyler & Hall Brownie looked amazing and is also vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and paleo.
The menu has Signature Peanut butter Protein Fries, complete with clean BBQ pulled pork and low fat cheese. These are next on my list of things to try. I need to see if these amazing foods and flavours work together. Is this a match made in heaven? I need to find out!
I’ll let you know.
