15 Places Where Eating Healthy Is Easy | MF Guide

Healthy Eating Is The Way Today!

There are many places where we can go out to eat, but that choice immediately narrows down when we want that meal to be healthy. Menus lined with carbs in the form of sandwiches, pasta, and pizza tease us and next to fried appetisers and indulgent desserts dripping with chocolate.

Some places, however, find a good balance. On a visit to any of these, you can order from a comfortable blend of taste and health. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?!

Visit any of these restaurants that serve healthy food without compromising on taste:

The Pantry, Fort

The Pantry is a vibrant café known for its delicious and healthy food. They focus on drinks as much as on food, as you can see in their Vitamin Boosts, Dates & Banana Soy Shake, non-bitter Cold Brewed Coffee and the warm and comforting Organic Honey, Haldi Doodh!
What we love the most at The Pantry though is the Nutrition Boost Salad! Also, do not miss their Flourless Chocolate Cake and their Fresh Fruit Baked Yogurt- it’ll be a complete treat to your sweet tooth without any guilt.

Quick tip: Get the Date, Banana and Soy Smoothie, or the Salted Caramel Shake with Almond Milk.

Bombay Salad Co, Bandra

The name says it all! Bombay Salad Co is a salad hub in good ol’ Bandra. Pick from a menu of different Salads, or make your own salad when you’re feeling creative. Oil free dressings are an option here, so you can eat guilt-free.
Apart from Salads, they also serve Sandwiches & Wraps, Smoothies, Juices, Soups and Healthy Desserts! Our personal favourites are The Mexican Salad and The Oat-Chia Pudding.

Quick tip: There smaller salad bowl is more filling than you think it might be.

Kala Ghoda Café, Fort

This one isn’t your typical healthy cafe. Their compact menu has wholesome breakfasts, salads and soups. You can enjoy eggs prepared in various ways, Oat Porridge or even a Yogurt and Muesli Breakfast.
Kala Ghoda Cafe’s excellent Dark Chocolate Waffles, made out of whole wheat and served with Granola. Try and get the couch upstairs to enjoy them!

Quick tip: The salads here are exceptional

The Yoga House, Carter Road

A yoga and Ayurveda themed cafe situated on Carter Road that serves food made of natural ingredients. This place has a serene, calm vibe and even better food. There’s novelty in the ‘I Am Sipping’ dessert, a cup of homely Masala Chai with three homemade ladoos.
The place has a Vegan friendly menu as well, and we absolutely love the Almond Milk Smoothie with Banana and Cinnamon!

Quick tip: Signature Hash Browns and Carrot Cake. You’re welcome.

This is our house favourite – the ‘I am Fruitfilling’ summer salad. 🌸 ~ Made from a fresh and tangy mix of fruit and vegetables including succulent oranges 🍊, crunchy pomegranates, roasted pistachios and juicy cherry tomatoes 🍅. With a sprinkling of feta and a splash of olive oil and balsamic, this colourful dish contains an abundance of goodness! ~ Did you know that pomegranates have been used by ancient civilisations as medicine for thousands of years?! Rich in antioxidants, these delicous jewel-like fruits improve digestion, treat diabetes, aid fertility, lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, improve arthritis and are packed with Vitamin D and E. Who knew something so tiny could be so powerful?! 💪 ~ Don’t forget that all the produce used in the Yoga House Cafe comes from certified organic farms and we have a wide range of gluten free and vegan options available 🌿. ~ We hope to see you soon! . . #mumbaiyoga #bandrayoga #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeverywhere #yogisofinstagram #vegan #plantbased #vegetarian #nutrition #healthfood #healthfoodcafe #organic #organicindia #healthyliving
