JSHealth Cape Town Guide 2016

Cape Town, Healthy Travel
cape-town

Cape Town is my second home and one of my favourite cities in the world (Up there with L.A. and Sydney of course!). It is one of the most dynamic cities in terms of food, people, landscape and vibe! There is so much to do, so much to see and so many places to eat! And I actually always manage to find healthy options – there are a lot of people that cater for health. South Africans value healthy eating – just like the Aussies – so it’s the best fun for me to experience all the restaurants there. Here is my official JSHealth guide (as of 2016!).

 

Self-confessed coffee snob speaking… These are the best coffee places in Cape Town!

 

And now… food and drinks with a vibe!

  • Jarryd’s: Aussie breakfast in Cape Town! Divine healthy options – love the banting bread (Made with coconut flour)
  • Willoughby & Co: Best sushi in Cape Town – a MUST try. Just be prepared to wait in a line.
  • The Dutchess: great food and vibe. Love the chicken breast and broccoli. Also adore their house salad.
  • Sexy Foods: For my vegans! Delicious vegan/plant-based food.
  • The Wellness Warehouse – delicious wholesome nourishing meals.
  • Tashas: Super tasty wholesome food options for all. Divine salads – just simple, fresh food – the type I love!
  • Kloof house: One of my fave dinner spots with ambiance. Really good if you want a more romantic vibe. There are some great healthy options too.
  • Carne: Best steak in Cape Town – I’m calling it.
  • Hemelhuijs: AMAZING chicken and cauliflower salad. Absolutely unbelievable lunch place – their food is ridiculous.
  • Black Sheep: The best meal I had in Cape Town. Unbelievable protein and vegetables sides – my perfect meal! Like a fancy pub really. I loved the chicken and eggplant.
  • Food and experience: The Old Biscuit Mill – one of the best food and art markets you will ever visit (with a serious vibe!). It is normally on every Saturday morning.
  • Caprice in Camps Bay for sundowners.
  • The Bungalow on Clifton. Amazing vibe for food and drinks that always turns into a party.

 

Looking for a fine dining experience? These are two of my favourites. Pricey but worth it.

 

Get your sweat on at my fave workout spaces:

 

Cape Town has some of the most incredible wineries in the world. I couldn’t choose just one, so here is my list:

 

Yay! Let me know if you try any of these delicious places!

TESTIMONIALS

Hi Jessica, I believe in synchronicity so when I was guided to you .on FB I was intrigued and inspired. I turned 46 last week and my husband bought me your book. I wanted to thank you for sharing your wisdom in such a beautifully presented way. My  copy is now filled with tabs and post it notes with actual notes throughout. I am dairy intolerant since having my gallbladder removed 15+ years ago, I don't eat meat, very minimal gluten and was told 12 months ago my gut was not digesting my food properly so I wasn't receiving sufficient nutrients and taking supplements would be a waste of time.  My weight fluctuates tending to gain rather than lose but now I believe I have a tool to help me bring my body back into balance that I need for my health and longevity of life - so again thank you. The first few steps to creating a stronger path forward for my health has found its foundation in your beautiful book, The Healthy Life.

With kindest regards Samantha

I'm writing this email because I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and how you really helped me in my health journey. Thank you for sharing all your advices and experiences.

When I started my studies, I was drinking lots of coffee and I was eaten the wrong foods, and feel bad about it, I wasn't at my best. So I had done some research on the net but at first I didn't found advices that are for me, and then I found your blog. It was exactly what I was looking for, good advices and healthy recipes. Now I'm following your advices on rest more, and snacks between meals and prep the meals and take time for myself to reconnect with my body and let go my anxiety, etc, and I have a more balanced life and have a new relationship with food thanks to you.

I bought your book and it's honestly the best book I have ever bought. I suffer from IBS and anxiety. I have paid so much money seeing naturopaths however after reading your book and all of your tips I'm noticing so much of a difference, so simple and easy to follow. And symptoms have dramatically decreased. Also you have helped me to relax. Currently drinking the protein health smoothie! Thankyou your amazing.

Hey Jessica!
I haven’t yet brought ‘The Healthy Life’, but I do have the clean life and your slim down plan! I would like to thank you so much for the knowledge your share and the message you put across about health and wellness. I’m studying Nutritional Medicine in Melbourne and absolutely love the philosophy that you share with your JSHealth community. The work you’ve done to show people that leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t boring, tasteless, difficult or depriving is amazing and hope to share the message myself one day. You’ve inspired me to start my own blog , to share the message and have taught me so many things about my own health! You should be proud of your achievements! Thank you again

I searched for help and tips through the Internet and found Jessica Sepel. This is seriously not exaggerated, but she was the reason why I have dared myself to eat again, to have snacks in between, to nourish my body. I could slowly improve my negative thoughts about my body image and my stupid anxiety of gaining weight. Besides, The Cleanest Gut was awesome too! A huge thank you! Especially from my mum. Seriously, without you I wouldn’t be where I am now!

Congratulations on your new book! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been following you on Instagram for a few years and you’ve inspired me to slowly but surely eat healthier without giving myself a hard time when I don’t. It made me so happy (and weirdly proud) to see the Daily Mail article on The Healthy Life. I remember trying out your recipes before you even had your eBook out! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. Keep up the great work.

– Sophie

Cooking in this way truly brought out the foodie in me and has instilled a huge passion for health and wellness! Life throws you hard and frustrating things sometimes but I truly believe that this is where we learn more about ourselves and what our passions in life are! Thank you for inspiring me on my journey to health and wellness!

I am a yoga teacher in Johannesburg and am thrilled to have bought your book today. I love making healthy, nutritious food for my family, friends and fellow yogis! Thank you for this book and your inspiration (had to share a pic of my book on my recipe stand in the kitchen).

– Helene

I bought your beautiful book during the week and told my bestie to go out and buy it also! I love love love it. It is the book I would give to my younger self if I could (I am 41 years old). Everything is just so sensible and informative and is definitely a book all teenagers should have. This should be a text book for girls becoming teens. I will love going back and re-reading it many many times and can't wait to make more of the recipes. Thank you Jess - you are an incredibly inspiring woman and you should feel so proud

Michelle Curtis

My fiancé bought your book and we have cooked some of your meals. Amazing! I love your outlook on a healthy lifestyle and your hints and tips with preparing tasty meals are fantastic. Thanks for reviving us to live a healthier lifestyle and get our bodies wedding ready.
