If you were among those
who thought healthy food was boring food, then here is a surprise for you..
Park Hyatt has launched a Diabetes Food Trail at Flying Elephant (this
started on the 14th Nov and goes on till the 30th Nov)

Conceptualised
and presented by Semora Entertainment Works; this unique initiative has been
supported by Britannia NutriChoice,and that is where the trail begins!!




The food
trail features 120+ Top Restaurants, whose Chefs have designed a special
diabetic- friendly menu, just for people with diabetes.  At Park Hyatt,
Chef Greg and Chef Vamsi have come together in creating this menu that is not
only healthy but filled with amazing flavours as well. No, am not exaggerating
or lying.. After having got the opportunity to taste the dishes that are part
of the menu I can say with conviction it is anything but bland…  What is
more, the calorie content is mentioned against each of the dishes  on the
menu, giving you insight into what you are eating! 

Another interesting trend am noticing is that the veg food seems to shine brighter over the non veg dishes.. 🙂 

Some of the dishes I tasted last evening was,

Turkish Lentil and burgle soup, chickpeas, dried mint and coriander (131 calories)

Quinoa and pomegranate  salad, orange slices, spinach, zucchini, celery with passion fruit dressing (131 calories)

For the mains, which were mouth wateringly yummy,

Brown rice congee, stir fried greens [bok choy, broccoli as well], shiitake mushrooms, ginger, spring onions, and sauteed garlic on top. I could happily just dig into a big bowl of this and be the happiest bunny around.. 🙂 (232 Calories)


Whole wheat pizza, thinnest base, ricotta cheese, parsley, sumac, rocket, apple  and quinoa as well- the base was super thin and it was just WOW… (294 calories )



Braised lentils,poached egg, steamed swiss char, onion escabeche, parsley pesto (252 calories)


While the non veg gang dug into the steamed Chilean seabags fish and the rice with chicken side, I eagerly waited for the desserts [ which are a slight variation from the diabetes trail, but healthy nevertheless]

The Desserts we dug into were, 

Lemon cheesecake mousse with berry compote served alongside two slices of fresh papaya (342 calories ) and Peanut butter frozen yoghurt cups, oats, granola and pomegranate.. [ Doc advices that no matter what dessert we have, it should be partnered with a fresh fruit]

Ah, what an evening it had been… So, if you are looking for a restaurant to have some delicious  food and keep it healthy, this is where you should head to..A lot of the dishes reminded of the Salad festival they held few months ago..
