New Delhi, Aug 30 (IANS) Whether snacks happen to be your soft spot or you have a weakness for big burrito bowls, the Foodhall lifestyle superstore can transform your guilty pleasures into gourmet experiences that even die-hard foodies would find hard to resist.
A “Healthy Foods and Super Foods” festival on till September 5 in New Delhi and Gurgaon woos health-conscious foodies and anyone with a serious appreciation for good food as it offers the best and healthiest in snacks, poké bowls and chia seed bowls, among others.
Begin with oven baked chips for the perfect guilt-free appetizer. Whether zucchini, sweet potato or beetroot chips, they are immensely addictive, especially when dunked in the range of healthy dips available.
From the low-calorie, yet immensely flavourful roasted pumpkin hummus to a dip made of bell pepper, you might even be tempted to make a meal of it. If fresh and crusty pumpernickel or rye bread is more to your liking, pick it from the bakery and pair it with your favourite dips.
Takeaway tubs and pouches of delicious, sugar-free granola are guaranteed to make sure you start your day right.
Whether it is the wholesome blueberry, walnut, almond and flax seed granola or the pistachio, raisins, pine nuts and cocoa nibs version, your tastebuds are going to be as thrilled as your waistline is sure to be.
“Foodhall’s inventive chefs have created spectacular dishes incorporating health powerhouses that can help you fight disease, feel more energetic and even lose weight. Dig into the wild rice pilaf, the exotic, gluten-free amaranth tabbouleh or the triple mushroom quinoa risotto,” a statement said.
The most exciting of Foodhall’s offerings is the new international trend of Hawaiian poké bowls. A deconstructed version of sushi that is bursting with flavours, it is healthy and finger lickingly good.
To get yourself one, first choose from a base of brown or white rice or healthier still, a mixed spring salad. Add your choice of protein-anything from teriyaki prawns to miso marinated fish or soy glazed soft boiled eggs.
Next comes a healthy helping of veggies, all rounded up with dressing and topped with some delectable add-ons. If you are a huge fan of meals in a bowl and can’t get enough, the cafe will have you spoiled for choice with the Tex-Mex quinoa bowl, the healthy veggie bowl and a whole lot more.
