We have put together a list of our personal favorites, which you can enjoy when your good conscience really needs an extra boost.

Caspars, Algade 55

Caspars has gradually established itself as one of the city’s most popular takeaway places and it has become a delicious and healthy alternative to the many temptations around the city.

They excel at making delicious sandwiches, fresh salads, and, not least, super healthy juices, freshly squeezed on the spot.

In addition, it is worth mentioning their irresistible poké bowls where you can save a few calories (if need be) by skipping the dressing.

Din Vitamin Bar, Kastetvej 41

If you live on the west side of town, it’s also possible to pick up healthy takeaway without having to go too far. There is no reason to overexert yourself – right?

Here you can get a wide and varied selection of everything from sandwiches, burgers, wraps, egg bowls, and much more.
