Perfect for a healthy lunch at home…

We’ve been at home for quite a while now, and if you’re anything like us, you’ll have gone one of two ways; living the healthy life and following quarantine workouts, or ordering in all your favourite indulgent treats.

Fortunately, Dubai is full of healthy restaurants that you can access without getting out of your chair thanks to the city’s delivery services. So get yourself back on track with these delicious and nutritious healthy lunch options for a guilt-free meal time…

Flexi Kitchen are promoting a ‘Flexitarian’ lifestyle, which means someone who eats mostly fruit or vegetables – but sometimes extends their diet to include meat, fish or poultry.
