We had our meals in Gallery Café which serves buffet as well as tried few dishes from their newly launched à la carte menu. The best thing is they serve fresh fruit juices, loved orange and watermelon juice.

Even though the restaurant is located in a five-star hotel, menu prices are very reasonable and light on the pocket. Also would recommend Lamb Curry from the Indian buffet section, Chicken-Bacon Ceasar Salad, Grilled Fish and Shikanji from a la carte menu. They have an extensive buffet breakfast, loads of choices from Dosa to Sausages.

Their lunch and dinner buffet is no less and is sumptuous. Also not to forget the wide range of desserts and cakes. These are a must try. They have dining space outside in the garden as well.

Lifestyle Awareness Day 2018

Featured

Lifestyle can be briefly described as the way we chose to live our life. It is just not about living, it is about how we live. It is just not about eating fruits and vegetables, but also about ensuring that what we chose to eat, adds value to our health and life. It is all about living a life that is healthy, active and happy. It is about spending quality time with our family, friends and loved ones that adds to the overall well-being.

images

Every year in the month of February, Lifestyle Awareness Day is observed as an awareness initiative to educate and create awareness on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Through this day it is communicated to the people on the elements of good nutrition, physical activity, tobacco control, awareness against alcohol and drug abuse and the importance of safe sexual behaviour. Through this day the people get the opportunity of know and tackle lifestyle diseases like obesity, hypertension, depression, inactivity and unhealthy diets.

Living a healthy lifestyle is not at all difficult as we might think of. Just like anything else, it starts with a simple step. Whether it is quitting the habit of smoking or alcohol, or choosing to eat healthy and engaging in some sort of physical activity.

Noted below are some lifestyle changes that is recommended on this lifestyle awareness day for all for a better and healthier tomorrow:

  • Choose to reduce your salt intake: High salt intakes are responsible for issues related to blood pressure and in the long run towards heart diseases and strokes. Reduce the use of salt to minimum along with processed and fast foods.
  • Increase calcium intake: It is a vital mineral for bone and tooth health. It is also important for other body functions like the contractions of muscles.
  • Adopt to eating a balanced diet: Diet with the right ratio of essential elements like minerals, fats, proteins and carbohydrates are necessary for the proper functioning of all organs in the body and its development.
  • Quit smoking and reduce alcohol intake: Both these elements are of no good to us. Smoking damages our lungs and alcohol our kidneys and other vital organs of the body. The benefits are none, whereas, the damages are countless.
  • Exercise regularly and stay hydrated: Drink atleast 8 to 10 glasses of water throughout the day to keep hydrated. Water is the best medicine that we could have to stay healthy and cleansed. Exercising regularly keeps us fit and active and keeps our muscles toned and relaxed.

The world changes even before we could realize the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Take the first step forward and start living a happy and healthier life.

Enchanting Dubai


Our stay in Dubai was simply amazing.

Visit to the beautiful Miracle Flower Garden is absolutely amazing. From the entry gate to the emirates airplane, everything is decorated with flowers. Even though you are not a fan of flowers, you will love this place. It’s a must visit when you are in Dubai.

The Global Village is very close to the Miracle Garden but requires full day to cover up the place. It has stalls of almost every country showcasing their specialty when it comes to food and culture.

The amazing Dubai Mall is so vast that it would take atleast a full week to cover up all the stores in the Mall. It consists of all the major brands, offers water fountain show in the evening, entry to the very popular Burj Khalifa.

Healthy Eating for Busy Professionals

Healthy Eating for Busy Professionals

If you want to genuinely lose fat, you must make some lifestyle changes as well as a total commitment. You may ask what if you are too busy? Healthy eating habits are essential for leading a disease free life. However, this is something that people with busy professionals and lives can achieve. A busy social life and juggling a career is not easy and just getting some time to eat healthy can be difficult. More often, you eat whatever foods come into your hand, something easy and quick hack you could just pop in the microwave or oven or get a takeaway. Even if you out to a restaurant for lunch or dinner, you might as well eat smart, like ordering for fresh fruit juice instead of chocolate shake.

1

So how could busy professionals eat healthy meals and still carry on their daily activities? Well, healthy eating is essential to lead a healthy life. The secret is planning! Plan your diet and eat healthy foods, this will really help you even if you have a busy lifestyle.

Schedule a block of time – Each week, (the day may change each week) take inventory of what you currently have, create a meal plan or have Inspiring Health prepare one for you. Make your shopping list and go shopping. When you return from the store, clean, cut and prepare single servings of fruit or veggies. Make one or two items in the oven and place in separate containers to freeze and / or put in the refrigerator. This may seem like a lot, but it can be done in about 3-4 hours at a time. This will save you lots of time during the week, where you will be just heating up your food and not having to prepare everything during the week.

Eat Real Foods- Even if you are busy, try to plan your meal timings accordingly and eat fresh fruits, vegetables and eat easy to cook food. This will surely help you to offer a good diet and make you feel energetic whole day.

Protein shakes- keep fresh fruit juice, protein shakes handy, and this will truly help you with your diet. This will give you nutritional value and health benefits.

Change your habits- by eating healthy foods, you can change your taste for foods. Avoid craving for junk foods, instead of it change your eating habits, and eat healthy meals. The more you healthy, the more your body tells you that it wants healthy foods. Instead of that sugary milk tea, have green tea instead.

2

Drink more water and make sure to drink fresh juices and fresh fruits. Healthy Eating Habits have the potential to alter a person’s body and overall personality for the better. Regular consumption of a nutritious and healthy diet has always proven to have a positive impact on a person’s lifestyle and physical appearance. By consulting a professional dietitian, you could plan your diet and get the best suggestion of healthy eating, in your busy schedule as well. There are different types of diet plans available for busy professionals and this will give you the exclusive health benefits. Plan your diet today and stay yourself healthy, even if you are a busy professional!
