From The Farm Straight To Our Bowls | Healthy Eating At Saboro, Churchgate

By Mumbai Foodie July 5, 2018
At Saboro, Churchgate.

As a company under Mahindra Agri Solutions Ltd., Saboro is an organisation that promotes the ‘farm to fork’ philosophy. The company has ventured into premium fresh fruits and dairy and has experienced a 7-fold growth rate in the last 5 years, the result of which, is their health-focused café in Churchgate. The café focuses on making an optimal use of their ingredients and sources the best of the best directly from farmers.

With a backstory like that, we felt intrigued enough to make our way to Churchgate on a Monday morning to pack in a breakfast before the we took on the hectic week ahead of us. They have a vast menu for a place that sticks to healthy guidelines. Initially, they had stuck to a simple salad menu, but this upgraded version featured several impressive varieties.

The first thing we ate, also happened to be one of our favourites from the menu was the Open Pesto Sandwich. This was made with multigrain bread which was topped with basil pesto, mushrooms, eggplant, bell peppers, zucchini and diced pieces of mozzarella cheese. The combination of the crunch vegetables along with the slight resistance from the cheese, all put together by the fresh pesto made it the perfect guilt-free snack.

From the other items we ate on their menu, we tried their special fruit bowl called All About Fruits, which was a refreshing bowl full of pineapple, apple, kiwi, pomegranate, iceberg lettuce, all dressed in a flavourful dressing of honey, cinnamon and extra virgin olive oil.

We could see that they tried hard to incorporate fun items on the menu to prove that healthy food can be innovative and tasty, too. Like the Hummus Pie Classic, made of a multigrain pie base, stuffed with roasted bell pepper hummus, sweet potatoes, sweet corn, mushroom and diced mozzarella. The entire pie made for a full meal for one, leaving no space for much else. The wholesomeness of the warm pie won over our hearts.

Cikoo Choco - Saboro

The Chikoo Choco Smoothie.

The Cheesy Mushroom Zucchini Rolls were a fun order, and made eating out feel totally guilt-free. So was the Chikoo Choco smoothie, which was so rich and smooth, that we enjoyed it as if it was a cheeky milkshake! They don’t use any artificial sugar in their food, giving us the confidence that we can do without it on a daily basis!

If you are all about the clean and healthy lifestyle, and taking care of your body is your focus, then Saboro is a must-add to your go-to list. In their menu, they also state the number of calories each item has, to help you make the right decisions in line with your diet plans. We would definitely keep visiting them for days when we want to feel motivated, and try to imbibe this healthy way of eating into daily meal plans.
