After seeing an incredible 50% increase in the number of dishes sold from their popular Veganuary menu this year, All Bar One is inviting guests to join them in fighting the hump day slump, as they serve up a selection of nutritious vegan, power-food dishes to celebrate #WellnessWednesday.
Gone are the days when healthy eating meant torturing yourself with a boring and restrictive diet, the Wellness Wednesday menu strikes the perfect balance between health, taste and nutritional value - leaving little need for compromise on either!
Carefully created with a registered nutritionist, these dishes fuel both body and mind with fresh, seasonal ingredients that are perfect for summer. Bringing vibrant colours, explosive flavours and low calorie, vitamin rich ingredients together on one plate, the new menu allows guests to really get the most out of their meal.
All Bar One’s resident nutritionist, Sarah Jackson said, “When All Bar One asked me to create a range of dishes that help their customers contribute to their 5 a day and nourish their body from the inside out, I couldn’t wait to get started!
'After lots of research, recipe development and nutritional analysis we have created four amazing dishes to go into the ‘Nutritious Power-foods’ range. The dishes are not only packed with healthy nutrients but are also full of flavour!”
Supergreen noodle laksa (ve)
- Pak choi, spinach and beansprouts in a spiced coconut sauce, topped with vermicelli noodles. Containing two of your 5 a day and half of your RI for folate and vitamin C, this dish was a strong favourite from the Veganuary menu that just had to make a comeback!
The power of five (ve)
- Pan-fried medley of greens, butternut squash, aubergine, mushroom and peppers in a toasted sesame and miso sauce, topped with a rice noodle cracker. At 300 calories or less and containing a whopping five of your 5 a day, there’s also the option to up your carbohydrate intake by adding a side of rice.
Avocado & black rice salad (ve)
- Onion seeds, quinoa, soya beans, baby kale and chilli with a creamy avocado centre, topped with a coconut dressing and tortilla crisp. Rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin B6 and containing 2 of your 5 a day, fish eaters have the option to top up their Omega 3 levels by adding salmon fillet to their salad.
Moroccan squash salad (ve)
Roasted butternut squash, spiced quinoa, chickpeas and sugar snap peas, topped with pomegranate and a coconut and turmeric dressing. Containing 2 of your 5 a day, packed full of Vitamin C and coming in at under 450 calories, try mixing things up by adding halloumi (V), chicken breast, tempura seasonal mushrooms (VE), king prawns or salmon fillet.
Diners can toast their good health with one of All Bar One’s many vegan and vegetarian wines and, for the calorie conscious consumer, the bar’s Skinny Fizz (VE) (containing no added sugar and coming in at only 57 calories per 125ml) allows guests to treat themselves to a glass of bubbles without the guilt!
Those with a sweet tooth can also have their cake and eat it with vegan dessert options, including a Rich Chocolate & Avocado Pot (VE) and Raspberry & Coconut Sorbets (VE).
