September 14, 202115 min

Can two wedges of strong, salty, cheese stuck together with a creamy, generous layer of butter form part of a healthy diet? On keto, yes it can.  The words “keto,” “ketosis” and “ketones” are bounced around all over the place these days.

Hailed as a health drink with numerous benefits for the gut microbiome, kombucha has taken the global wellness world by storm. Yet it was never officially for sale in the UAE — largely due to concerns over whether or not it contains traces of alcohol — leaving fans to brew their own or get their fix elsewhere. But that issue appears to have been addressed, and now it’s for sale in local restaurants, shops and...

Don’t you just love it when something you may have considered a “vice” turns out to be good for you? Coffee has been on this upward trajectory for a while now, which just as well, as we drink a massive 1.4 billion cups a day across the globe. Although in the past, coffee consumption has been linked to heart disease, asthma and increased risk of stroke, many of those early studies have slowly been discounted. These...

Seva Table is tucked away behind Seva Experience, which is tucked away behind Jumeirah Center.  Yet everyone seems to know about this little “hidden gem”; staff were turning away would-be diners even on a recent weekday lunch. A few things you need to know: Everything in this cafe is plant-based and “free from” gluten, dairy and cane sugar, GMO and plastic. There are numerous nut, garlic and onion-free options too.

Angela Bishara started suffering agonizing joint pain and inflammation in her knee shortly after turning 30. Unable to drive, walk properly or stand up for longer than 10 minutes, she turned to the spice turmeric –and it’s primary bioactive substance curcumin – to tackle the symptoms of what would later be diagnosed as Hashimoto’s disease and reactive arthritis.  “I can’t describe the pain, the heaviness, the frustration, the fear of not knowing if I would...
