This blog is a part of niwi.ai’s “healthy restaurants near me” series. Today, we have included a list of 16 healthy restaurants in Gurugram, Haryana. With this blog, we aim to destigmatize the non-availability of healthy foods and restaurants to sustain a proper diet. We feel a diet should not restrict you from having a social life or from going out and having fun, rather it should support you and your schedule.
This series will include blogs that will give you insights about the healthy restaurants near you, their specialty, and their contact information so you can enjoy guilt-free indulgence. :)
Despite great strides made in the health sector over the past few years, there still seems to be a decline in the overall health of Indians due to lack of nutritional awareness. The lack of nutritional awareness can mask itself in many ways - from not knowing what to eat, when to eat, how to eat, or not having enough resources to eat. Good nutrition is pivotal to living a healthy, fulfilling, and disease-free life.
A lot of our clients who have taken an initiative to adopt a healthy lifestyle often ask us the million-dollar question – “What should we eat when we go out?” or “Where should we go out to eat?”. We get it, it is easy to plan healthy meals when you are indoors but when you’re out to party with your friends or go for a casual lunch date to a nearby place it can get tough. Where to go and what to order are a few questions that can take hours to decide.
The other day, we were in a session with one of our clients Suraj who started his fitness journey 3 months back. His ultimate goal is to lose weight and indeed has shown great progress in his 3 months with us. This time around, he asked us a question that compelled us to create a series of ‘healthy restaurants near me’. “My social life has taken a toll ever since I started dieting. Would you recommend some healthy restaurants to go to with my friends?”. Suraj almost felt guilty going out to eat as he felt he was cheating on his diet so he spent 3 months living a solitary life. A lot of people have stigmas like Suraj but what they don’t understand is that a healthy diet does not have to confine you to anything, it is meant to liberate you. There are many food choices and restaurants that you can go to and enjoy but unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of information out there as to which restaurant has healthy options to eat.
Suraj also shared the concerns of his friends about going to a traditionally healthy restaurant because they feel that they don’t have to be compelled to eat healthy food just because he is. So, we made a promise to Suraj to also include restaurants that are not traditionally known for being healthy but do have some great healthy options so people like Suraj and their friends can have the best of both worlds.
Keeping our promise, our certified nutritionists have teamed up to share top healthy foods, healthy restaurants, or just normal restaurants that sell some healthy items that could benefit you. We also have included vegan, gluten-free, and non-vegetarian options so anyone and everyone can leverage this blog.
This is a series so don’t worry if you aren’t from Gurugram, we will have a blog for your city very soon so stay tuned for that! Just let us know which city you’re from at email@example.com.
