Struggling to find a lunch that leaves you energised rather than sluggish? You’re in luck.
Friday saw the launch of a healthy, stress-busting new menu at Manchester’s Scene Indian Kitchen, courtesy of very our own Jeannette Jackson.
The biochemist and celebrity nutritionist has long extolled the virtues of certain foods in the battle against stress and work-based anxiety. Now, working alongside Scene’s executive chef Sudesh Singh, Jeannette has designed a scrumptious new superfood menu to feed the executive brain.
Guests were treated to a veritable feast of sample dishes, including chicken infused with Indian spices, a moreish superfood stir-fry vegetable medley, and a refreshing watermelon with pistachio and mint salad.
Speaking at the launch, Jeannette, said: “I’ve spent my career travelling all over the world, working with executives on reducing stress in the workplace through nutrition. I realised that Manchester is home to a thriving business community, which could benefit from the same approach, and the Manchester Stress Institute was born.
“The goal is not only that people themselves learn more about nutrition and how what they eat can affect their stress levels, but that it filters down to the supermarkets and restaurants.
“Scene already offers a forward-thinking dining experience and was, therefore, the ideal partner for this venture. It’s been a pleasure to work with Sudesh and I think we’ve created a menu that is not only delicious but ideally formulated to support the city’s booming business community.”
Available in the restaurant, as a takeaway or even to order straight to your desk or boardroom, the new Superfood menu comprises perfectly-blended low calorie, high protein authentic Indian dishes.
Each ingredient is specifically chosen for the properties it has that make it a must-eat for Manchester’s executives.
For example, low-GI quinoa is anti-inflammatory and counts anti-depressant effects, amongst its multiple health benefits, whilst vitamin B-rich salmon is necessary for healthy bones, brain and heart.
There’s no compromise on taste or flavour, with every dish staying true to the restaurant’s Indian cuisine.
You can customise your menu too, with a choice of tasty proteins, including pan-grilled sea bass, chicken, or rib-eye steak, salads such as spicy 5 bean, or kale and beetroot, and sides.
Scene will also be offering yoga and bhangracise on site, as part of the new healthy living initiative.
