Kickstart your 2018 health resolution with a food detox by the end of 2017.
December is a season which is all about sweet liquor, succulent poultry dishes and decadent desserts taking over your kitchen counter and your dinner plates. A lot of it can be overwhelming to our tummies, thus we have come up with a roundup of our favorite dishes from selected outlets around Mont Kiara and Hartamas that would please your holiday indulgence without causing any bloat—as just what the doctor ordered. In the spirit of our new year resolution to start a healthy lifestyle before the start of a new year, here are five dishes you can get in the area without any excuses to cheat.
1. Vitamin Power Shots from La Juiceria
Late-night partying and tormenting hangovers the morning-after is all too familiar during this festive season. Schools are out, so are the booze and the comfort food— therefore, what better way to kickstart a new day with a healthy cocktail of vitamins to calm the tummy from the rigors of champagne and creams? La Juiceria is a household name for a hefty selection raw juices on the menu, perfect to even kickstart a juice cleanse. However, our personal favorite is “The Defender” power shot, which is a cocktail of turmeric, organic cayenne pepper, lemon and wildflower honey. With an anti-inflammatory boost from the turmeric and the healing properties of honey and lemon, this anti-hangover powerhouse is a staple after a series of wild party nights as well as steps to overcome belly bloat from all the bread and grease from Christmas dinner parties.

2. Acai bowl from Cabana Acai Bar
#Millenial is still trending and we heard acai smoothie bowl is all that we, millennials eat (well, of course apart from the nasi lemak burger and salted egg yolk doughnuts). Acai berry which makes the acai bowl is heralded for a ubiquitous amount of health benefits such as metabolism boost and promotes digestion. Who knew a handful of small, round darling could possibly be super healthy and also refreshingly delicious as a breakfast option?

4. Vegan Ice Cream from Kind Kones
There is always a debate of pro-dairy versus dairy-free diet. We believe you cannot go wrong if everything is done in moderation— whether if it’s cream cheese or coconut ice cream. Here at Kind Kones, let’s be kind to our overworked digestive systems by nourishing it with the goodness of almond, cashew, and coconut cream in replacement for dairy. Also, Kind Kone’s ice cream is free from eggs, dairy products, refined sugar, emulsifiers, preservatives, additives, artificial colorings and flavorings too. After trying a Kone, it will take a long time (possibly never) for you to crave for a regular, highly-processed ice cream. As the first vegan ice-cream bar in Malaysia, it’s hard to pass them up without a trial.
