Healthy Hotspots you must visit in Doha
I have lived in Doha for ten months already and it’s safe to say that I have done my research of all the healthy hotspots around here. When I’m honest moving here was a little scary as I had no idea how I will be able to adopt my healthy habits over here. Luckily it was a lot easier than I thought and this city offers many great healthy places to eat and enjoy fresh juices and smoothies. I want to share some of my favourites with you.
“Conscious eating is not a diet, it is a way of life which declares that you are the expert of your own body. Conscious eating is all about paying attention to your body and what you put in it, and you just have to listen to it to know what, when and how much to eat. I choose to follow a plant-based diet consisting of superfoods, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds in search of optimal wellness. But I’m not here to tell you that following a plant-based diet is the choice for you. Every person is different. It’s just a matter of eating more consciously. I became 100 percent vegan about three years ago and I made that choice because I felt like it was the right thing to do for my body. I felt amazing. I really had more energy, my skin got better, I started running marathons, boxing, hiking, yoga and meditation. I couldn’t go back to my old habits because I feel the difference and I see results every day.”- Ghanim Al Sulaiti

A concept made in Germany – was launched by David Baumgartner with the slogan “fresh to eat”. The success story began in 2007 with the first Salad Bar in Munich’s Schellingstrasse, and has since spread right around the world.
The idea for dean&david came to David during a sabbatical year following his political and economic studies. David travelled around the world with open eyes and was rewarded with the inspiration for his individual cuisine. Lifestyle with a kick of freshness, fast food was redefined and became simple, modern and urban. A hotspot for healthy trend-setters was born. dishes combine enjoyment and quality with healthy, light food. The secret of dean&david lies in the details. As a result they use only the freshest and accordingly vitamin and mineral-rich ingredients which are free from flavour enhancers – simple, healthy food prepared by hand!
