It’s Healthy, Tasty…It Has To Be Lebanese!
Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Our food choices each day affect our health and how we feel today and in the future.
You’ve probably read our previous blogs about Lebanese cuisine being one of the healthiest foods in the world because of the ingredients we use and the way we cook our food. According to Health Line, Lebanese food is in 10th place on the list of top healthiest cuisines because of our low-fat meals which make it the perfect choice if you want to eat healthy and also lose some weight.
Always eat salad and а starter before the main meal!
It’s very important to start your meal with the salad and some mezze.
A super-healthy choice for salad is Tabbouleh made of chopped parsley, tomato and bulgur with a dash of olive oil and lemon juice.
If you fancy cold starters why not try our hummus or baba ganoush! As you know Hummus has become one of the hottest health foods in the last few years, and with good reason. Made from chickpeas and ground sesame seeds, plus olive oil, hummus is packed with fibre, protein and healthy fats. Usually eaten with pita bread, but if you’re considering the healthier option, then why not order it with a side of fresh vegetables. It’s a perfect combination plus you will keep calories to a minimum.
If you want to try something different you can always order baba ganoush – a tasty, creamy eggplant dip that looks like it contains mayo, but is actually made from eggplants which are considered one of the best fats for weight loss.
Equally take a look at our main dishes, with some great healthy options for lunch, such as fresh lamb, chicken and fish.
Lamb is a great option and also has an impressive nutritional value. It contains a range of beneficial nutrients including protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.
On our menu you can find variety of options that include lamb, such as cutlets, grilled lamb and kafta. All of them are mixed with vegetables making them an ideal healthy lunch option.
Chicken – a favourite amongst many. Not only does it taste good, but also has plenty of health benefits to offer from protein through to healthy fats.
With this in mind we recommend our CHICH TAOUK. It is perfect combination of chicken chunks marinated in lemon juice and Abd El Wahab’s tasty garlic sauce.
Fish is one of the most beneficial protein sources for your diet. Packed with essential nutrients, like omega-3 fatty acids, and also known for being a great source of protein to keep your body lean and your muscles strong. So for those who enjoy fish, SAMKEH HARRA is a delicious and equally healthy option from our menu.
