There's a new breakfast in town. Think quinoa plus granola and what do you get? Qnola. Get your hands on some at the Kingly Street Deli.
The other day my friend invited a group of us round to soak up the sunshine in her garden, and as I was feeling bloated and a little uncomfortable after a carb-heavy lunch I decided to stop off at Whole Foods on my way and pick up a Kombucha drink that I’d been meaning to try for a while. Call it market research. I didn’t think much of my actions but I was taken aback by the almost indignant reaction my friends had to my drink choice, the fact that it didn’t contain alcohol and was purportedly good for you. I wasn’t drinking it because I was counting calories. I simply felt bloated and wanted to give my body a bit of a break.
And it seems this reaction has snowballed into a larger backlash against the idea of healthy eating and those who encourage it, no doubt due to an overcrowded market with mixed messages. “Is fat our friend or foe!?” “Will I be committing a cardinal sin if I eat meat on a Monday!?”. Which is why at The Detox Kitchen we really try to take it back to basics. We don’t use hard to pronounce ingredients (except maybe quinoa “keen-wah”. We don’t promote an all or nothing approach. We focus on fulfilment – physically and mentally. To quote supermodel Gigi Hadid, “Eat clean to stay fit, have a burger to stay sane."
