Your fitness journey starts with what you eat and here are some of the UAE’s best Healthy food concepts in 2022

Created in partnership with Deliveroo.If you’re looking to maximize your workout performance, proper nutrition is going to play a very important role during your fitness journey. While achieving the right balance of complex carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats, and other nutrients is vital, sometimes you just can’t prepare the same for yourself.

The past few years have seen food delivery become an everyday part of our lives; rather than that one-time indulgence during the week.

Gone are the days when being healthy equated to surviving on basic salads and boiled protein. Brands across the UAE are becoming increasingly creative with their healthy offerings. Their constant innovation has allowed a rising number of UAE residents to not just make grand resolutions at the start of the year, but to actually stick to a healthy eating lifestyle in the long term.

From pasta to quesadillas, all the way to specialty bowls and burgers, here are the ten most popular healthy dishes available on the Deliveroo app to get fitter in 2022.
