My Top 5 Healthy Food Alternatives at Chennai

I go by the mantra, "Live to Eat". Being the most loved job, I never restrict myself from experimenting new food or cuisine. But the most important thing I forget during this food journey is to respect and care for my health.

Healthy eating isn't about restricting ourselves from tasty food or eating uncooked food. I would translate 'Healthy' as 'Balanced'; so balanced eating or meal is all that we need. So compromising taste isn't my cup of tea; so I have been hunting for places that would excite me by serving a balanced and tasty meal.

Many nook-and-corner of Chennai is glowing with organic stores and healthy food options. Among the many, here are my top 5 picks around the city that serves a balanced meal both in terms of health and taste.

Here goes the list:
Green Cafe
They use organic ingredients to cook and serve balanced and gluten free millets based vegan food. There delicious menu would rekindle the forgotten South Indian traditional food. Kozhukattai, Paniyaram and Millets Pongal are my favourite.

Prems Graama Bhojanam
They serve millet based authentic South-Indian delicacies for lunch and dinner. Simple yet delicious; seeing those forgotten food delights would widen our chins. Must try is their Millets Dosa and Thattu Idly.

KA - The Organic Restaurant
Similar to Green Cafe, they set perfect example for unified agricultural process - they grow, they sell, they make and they serve. A thoughtful dining space that focus on organic food preparation and serve some delicious cluster of South-Indian food. Must try is Millets Dosa, Millets Pongal and Bajri Soup.
