What to order in a restaurant if you are on a diet? The chef answers

The opinion that proper nutrition is difficult, time consuming and energy consuming is still widespread. All these containers with buckwheat and steamed chicken, apples in pockets and eternal homemade preparations are the first thing that pops up in the imagination at the mention of PP. But healthy food can be delicious and available outside of your own kitchen. The chef of the mountain restaurant Rosemary of the Rosa Khutor resort Shah Akbari tells what to look for when choosing a dish and shares exclusives from the author's menu.

We promote healthy lifestyle. The concept of author's cuisine in the restaurant is presented in four elements. The aquatic is represented by the gifts of the sea. The element of the earth is reflected in the vegetarian direction. Fire is Kuban meat and vegetables cooked on fire. The element of air - poultry dishes and sophisticated technologies: sous-vide, molecular techniques that give a delicate, airy texture to the dish.

Are diet meals in a restaurant real?

Of course. First of all, you need to understand that you can choose any product, the main thing is the method of preparation. For example, even when processing lamb or beef, you can remove all the fat and leave only the pulp, thereby getting the maximum benefit and minimum harm.
Be sure to check with the waiters about the calorie content of the dishes or ask for the KBZhU card. Even dessert can be useful if it is made with the right ingredients.

For a long time I wanted to understand what proper nutrition is, and realized that for this, first of all, you need to give up fatty, salty and spicy. I steam, without adding bad fats (using olive oil, pumpkin oil instead of butter), adding more salads, vegetables, fruits.

Due to work I have to try a lot, but I try to stay on course healthy food, so there are many such dishes on the menu. Avocados are among the top favorite foods. I cook and eat in completely different variations - on the grill, in the form of guacamole, pâté, in a salad.

For the first

Cream soup from corn with smoked snow and raThe broccoli gu is my personal favorite. I changed the recipe for this dish four times. The soup itself remains the same, but we're experimenting with toppings. Ideally - crab meat, but we would like the dish to be available to everyone, so now we are preparing a winter version - with mussels. Unlike conventional cream soups, cream with a minimum percentage of fat is used in cooking.
