It’s the new year and staying healthy is on everyone’s Resolution list, while the concept very easily and soon fades away by the end of January, one major reason for that happens to not having much source of access to Healthy alternatives to life, and what alternatives we are provided with are generally very dull to keep our resolve pumping.
Thus, we present to you Flax, an all healthy eatery which majorly focuses on Salad that are 100% healthy and also provide yummy taste for beginners and others in sync. Lower Parel is teeming with offices, and yet, many will agree that lunch options that tick all the boxes in terms of being healthy, quick and hygienic are few to come by. But Flax, tucked away in the Todi Mill compound, close to Cafe Zoe, is changing that. Their menu comprises largely of salads – assembled ones and a DIY salad bar, sandwiches, wraps and our favourite – the vegetarian and non-vegetarian bowls!
We tried the hearty Chipotle Cowboy Bowl (INR 345), which isn’t exactly inexpensive, but as you can tell from the picture, is massive and because of the varied ingredients such as the grilled chicken, guacamole, mixed beans and ragi chips, offers loads of variety and is perfect to keep you fuelled all day! While all aren’t adventurous enough to assemble their own salad, do try the signature Glow Bowl (INR 210), that promises to have anti-ageing benefits. Packed with kale, cranberry, chia seeds, chickpea, avocado, beetroot and loads more, it definitely will keep you feeling energetic all day. The game changer? They have a turmeric dressing to go with this salad. Who would have thought good old haldi could pair so well with mustard for a dressing?
If you’re looking to hit the re-set button with your diet after binging over the weekend, their Healthy Heart smoothie and Vitamin Boost cold pressed juice is just what you need! While you can drop by here for a bite, they deliver in the Lower Parel area and open as early as 10 am. So you could book your daily lunch meals with them and have healthy routine going!
