Looking to gorge on some healthy grub? At this cafe you can enjoy delish delicacies but with a calorie count
Who doesn’t enjoy going out and having something good to eat? But a day out with pals or BAE can account to a ton of calories that will become increasingly difficult to shed. What must a person do then? Order the basic AF salads or just avoid eating and going out entirely?
Luckily for Kanpurians, going out to have a bite no longer entails gorging calories after calories. Relatively new to the cafe scene in the city, NU is a ‘Health Cafe’. The cafe serves scrumptious dishes that will not sit in your stomach for ages.
The cafe is simple and elegant, the sophisticated interiors are warmed up with the use of natural colours in the decor. The blue, nude, green, yellow and the white make the place feel more open while the whimsical wall murals provide for a much needed fun element.
The simple and elegant interiors are a testament to the kind of food they serve at the NU Cafe. From vegetarian to gluten free and packed with protein if you’re looking for healthy you’re sure to find some here.
The cafe has all of your regular grub, shakes, smoothies, all sorts of egg preparations, breakfast bowls, platters, not so basic salads, pizza, pasta, burgers, sandwiches and much much more.
And the best part you ask? Well everything is healthy, it is prepared in very little to no oil, the veggies they use are fresh and if you like the restaurant can also inform you about the calorie count of the meal you’re having.
We love the eggs benedict here, beautifully poached eggs with a soft middle, hollandaise sauce, a layer of cheese all put on top of a homemade whole wheat bun and dotted with fresh greens.
And if you’re coming here for a post workout meal get the ‘gym special’ platter which comes with grilled chicken, sprouts, egg whites, sauteed veggies and a choice of flavoured tea/fresh juice/coffee/buttermilk. The tempting platter is perfect for a healthy joyride of good carbs and proteins with only 375 calories!
What’s more is that you can get a lot of healthy dessert options in the cafe as well for the days when the craving gets the best of you.
So the next time you feel like having a sumptuous meal that doesn’t take away 10 years of your life, head to NU health cafe in Kanpur.
