Trend eateries, tiffin services and even wedding caterers are waking up to health food like never before. Gorging on rich food at restaurants almost negates the effort put in otherwise to keep healthy. Says Nayan Yagnik, a restaurateur, “Restaurants are blamed for recycling leftovers.
We want to offer food without any artificial trappings of excess oil.” Alpana Patel, a health food caterer’s home delivery menu consists of soups, bake dishes, pizzas, sandwiches, paratha sabji, dhansak and brown rice, cutlets, corn bhel, baked veg, ragda patties, veg handvo, jacket potatoes and more. “I felt it is a lucrative option for a housewife like me.” Siddharth Jaiswal, who offers organic fruit and vegetable juices and low cal snacks, feels “Avoiding artificial flavours is the whole idea.”
A recent study found strong associations between frequent consumption of fast food and increased weight and insulin resistance in young adults. Says Mithun Shah, a health and organic food entrepreneur, “Diabetes is very common so we always get these requests to serve sugar-free ice creams and sweets.” Mithun uses rock salt, hand churned aatta for rotis, rain water and all the organic ingredients procured from the local farms. “When we use the electric flour mill for aatta, the important nutrients are lost.”
