The one place where I found healthy meals to go with my love for good food was Smoke House Deli, they’ve had a healthy menu for almost forever. When I eat there, neither do I have to deviate from my health goals and nor do I have to compromise on good taste. Their Healthy Menu has all the indulgent keywords thrown in with healthy ones, so it’s as much about flavour as it is about the fitness or should I say fit foods.
There are vegan and gluten-free dishes and those that are free from trans-fat and dairy as well. There are probiotic dishes inspired by Paleo foods, so if you’re following a Paleo diet, you need to check this menu out. My usual order always includes the Jowar Gnocchi and Mushroom Fricassee because I absolutely love pasta, this usually has a side of Grilled Vegetable Ravioli with coconut and soya milk or the Pan Seared River Sole with soya milk and Bhavnagri sauce.
For those of you who prefer something with a bit of a kick, don’t miss the Peri Peri Rubbed Grilled Chicken with Citrus Pimento Reduction. That’s not all, they have a selection of close to 40 dishes for those who have allergies, intolerance or just prefer to watch what they eat. You don’t have skip dessert either because they have a healthy Banana Flour Cake with carrot pate and the delightful Cacao Nib and Soya Milk Cheesecake with a nachini crust which even my nutritionist would approve of.
In case you’re conscious of locally sourced foods like I am then you’ll be happy to know this menu includes superfoods like millets, a grain unique to India and very nutritious, they also use jowar, nachini which some of you may know as sorghum, amaranth and red rice. Other superfood ingredients include the uber-trendy, quinoa, kale, and even spirulina, which you no longer have to consume as a supplement, just have it in a meal at Smoke House Deli.
