Beat The Heat Salad, Ministry Of Salads

A chic bistro, located in the SoBo lanes of Kemps Corner, Ministry of Salads is an unexplored paradise for all health conscious eaters. The recommended dish is definitely their Beat the Heat Salad, with its unique mix of greens and cheese!

In this era of oily, greasy, junk food, we all need some healthy food from time to time. I recently visited @ministryofsalads, a tiny bistro in Kemps Corner, that offers delicious yet healthy food! ? Here's the pick of the lot – Beat The Heat Salad. Made with chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, olives, mozzarella, red onion, mixed greens with a lemon herbed dressing, the salad was perfect for a light yet filling dinner! ? Besides varieties of salads, they also offer to customise salads, sandwiches, wraps and beverages. For all the health freaks and calorie conscious people, check this place out!

Burrata, Shamiana At The Taj Mahal Palace

When at The Taj Mahal Palace, feast like a king (or queen) even while on a diet. And, if you love cheese, The Hungry Mumbaikar has just the right recommendation for you. Burrata, at Taj hotel’s restaurant Shamiana, is not simply cheesy, but mouthwateringly delicious YET healthy!

If inception is about a dream within a dream, Burrata is about cheese within a cheese! Tag someone who wants to experience good ol' cheesy goodness! ? Here's the Burrata at Shamiana, @tajmahalmumbai. This Italian cheese has a firm outer Mozzarella cheese layer. On the inside, it's a mixture of cream and more Mozzarella cheese! Cheesier than most Tinder pick up lines! ?

Vitalizing Chicken Herbed Brown Rice, Greenz

A delivery service based out of Powai and Worli, Greenz, according to The Hungry Mumbaikar, is healthy food service personified. Their Vitalizing Lemon Chicken Meal offers an out of this world combination of health and taste!

With Kerala imposing 14.5% Fat Tax on junk food and Maharashtra rumoured to implement the same soon, it's high time we found a place that makes healthy yet tasty meals or we'll all be broke soon! ? I found mine in @healthygreenz, a delivery service based out of Powai & Worli. I ordered this Vitalizing Lemon Chicken Meal the other day for lunch. It came with herbed brown rice and smoked chicken glazed with a coriander sauce and a complimentary box of salad on the side. Scrumptious lunch which was both healthy and tasted good! ?

Tableside Guacamole, Chili’s

While the burgers from Chili’s could shatter any dieter’s resolve to eat light, their Tableside Guacamole, prepared right in front of you, is something that everyone on a healthy diet should try. After all, delicious avocado dip + salsa and tortilla chips = pure bliss!

Holy Guacamole! ? Here's the Tableside Guacamole, one of the signature dishes that I tried in the new menu launched at @chilisindia.

Soya Milk Cheesecake With Nachini Crust, Smoke House Deli 

While regular cheesecakes are a definite no-no for anyone on a diet, the Smoke House Deli (known for their innovative recipes) challenges popular perceptions with their deliciously healthy Soya Milk Cheesecake with Nachini Crust. Prepared with extremely health-friendly ingredients, this cheesecake is a must have for all who thing eating healthy equals eating bland.

Healthy food is often considered bland and boring. No wonder majority of us hate dieting! But what if healthy food tasted good? Wouldn't that be too good to be true? Well, it's true! Smoke House Deli has recently launched a new Health Menu. A lot of effort has gone in to make dishes using health-friendly ingredients and at the same time, make them taste so great! One example of the same is this Soya Milk Cheesecake with Nachini Crust which I tried at a recent blogger's meet. The cheesecake had just the right creaminess and texture that was well complemented with the crunchy ragi crust. Sheer innovation by @smokehousedeli at its best!
