Top 10: Almond Croissants in London

It’s my latest guilty pleasure.


I didn’t think I liked croissants until Sunday morning, sitting at Paul’s in the sunshine opposite St.Paul’s cathedral after a heavy night partying at a friend’s 50th. When Hubby asked if I wanted a pastry with my coffee, I declined because I can’t stand the accompanying buttery smell. He came back with the sheer delight that was a freshly baked almond croissant with no butter smell at all. Crisp layers of croissant, a moreish almond paste filling and crunchy almond topping.

Apparently Hubby has been enjoying treats at Paul’s for ages. Clearly his guilty secret and at 391 calories per croissant, I can see why it was a closely guarded one. I’m going to start my own Top 10 list of foods to cheat on with Paul’s Almond Croissant as my first entry.


About Sneha

I am a pharmacist and homeopath and have advised people for many years on issues to do with health, weight and well being. My role has involved navigating my way through the burdensome and sometimes conflicting volume of information and advice from health experts about with what constitutes a healthy diet, what foods to avoid if you want to lose weight and the importance of exercise in weight control and maintaining health. Despite all this information being available, obesity in the UK continues to rise. Knowledge is one thing, but putting it into practice is another! Having lost 3 stones since the birth of my second child, people have been asking me how I did it. That's what has inspired me to write this blog and share my experiences in the hope that it inspires others to find their own path to achieving their health and beauty goals!
