The year is running to an end (thank goodness!) and to be honest, it’s been a tough year for the fitfam. Many of us must have added eating healthy to to our list of new year resolutions around this time last year only to get hit with, yeah, 2020. If you’re still on track, eating healthy, working out, and generally being a faithful member of the fitfam geng, you’re the real MVP. Here, a high five for you!
One of the hardest things to do this year was staying true to a healthy diet. With the comfort foods during the endless hours we spent working (and doing pretty much everything) from home, it really isn’t exactly shocking. For many people, access to healthy food may also have reduced due to many businesses closing during the thick of the pandemic.
Thankfully, things are looking up, and 2021 is already promising to be kinder to us as individuals and as a community. Hopefully, we all get back on track and get our fitfam back on. It goes without saying that healthy eating also gets back on top of our list of new year resolutions.
For your healthy-eating convenience these are five stores/cafés where you can get foods, snacks and everything in-between that aren’t just healthy but also delicious and bound to satisfy your taste buds while keeping you fit as a fiddle. The list is in no particular order:

Nellies Healthy Snacks & Meals – Lagos & Abuja
Nellies NG is one of the more popular brands in the Nigerian healthy food space. This quote from their website pretty much summarises their goals and objectives:
“When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, a lot of people focus on the meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), but what is ruining us is the snacking that comes in between. Whether it’s snacks or meals, there’s a need to keep it healthy – that is where Nellies Nigeria comes in.”
