After receiving tremendous response and enormous success from its first edition, The Diabetic Food Trail® is all set, once again, to offer Diabetics, Pre-Diabetics and Health conscious individuals, a wonderful culinary experience at over 200 restaurants across Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore & Pune. The Diabetic Food Trail is presented by Britannia Nutrichoice Essentials in association with Biocon, the largest Indian Insulins Company. Britannia and Biocon have once again partnered with DFT, this year along with Fitternity.com, Health & Nutrition and Burrp!By extending their support, Britannia Nutrichoice Essentials and Bioconunderline their belief, in this ground-breaking health initiative with a profound social objective of triggering the food industry on the needs of healthy diabetic friendly cuisine.
Keeping in mind, the hectic lifestyle of today’s youth and adults, it has become extremely difficult to maintain one’s health. Upon seeing this, they will be introducing two main attractions to this edition’s Diabetic Food Trail- 1) Diabetic Masterclasses 2) Diabetic Fitness Bootcamps. The Diabetic Masterclasses will help individuals understand the ingredients, nutritional values, read packaging labels, learn exciting recipes which will help elevate the eating habits of diabetics without compromising on taste. These masterclasses will be held by renowned nutritionists and chefs across the 5 cities. With special focus on getting fit, the Diabetic Fitness Bootcamps tailored for diabetics will be conducted by fitternity.com
Held at the Hyatt Place, Gurugram the first Diabetic Masterclass event saw their executive chef Gautam share some interesting recipes incorporating the new range of Nutrichoice biscuits launched by Britania, keeping in mind the diabetic consumer.
The focus was to introduce you the diabetic or health conscious consumer to different recipes to fulfill their craving for sweets without running the risk of consuming sugar.
It was a really innovative and commendable effort by the chef, and I think overall its a great initiative.
As Seema Pinto – Director, Semora Entertainment Works and the brain behind this initiative said, “The focus of the second edition is on Diet and Fitness in effective Diabetes management. For a person with diabetes, eating nutritious and well-balanced meals with a regular fitness routine is vital in managing diabetes. This applies to pre-diabetics and the health conscious too”
Really a very thoughtful idea. The Masterclass held by Executive Chef Gautam was a treat to watch and a great learning curve for the ignorant as he touched upon various myths associated with consumption of sugar based sweets and it’s general intake in day to day life. All in all a nice learning experience specially for those associated with this dreaded ailment.
Neha Motwani, Founder – Fitternity.com, seemed very happy about partnering with the Diabetic Food Trail, this year. She said, “DFT is a great platform that enables users to experience healthy eating and manage diabetes in a fun and sustainable manner. It resonates with Fitternity’s philosophy of holistic fitness and helping users start & sustain their wellbeing journey through both aspects of ‘working out’ and ‘eating right’. We are excited to partner with the Semora team to introduce a never-experienced-before initiative that combines fun, food, fitness into one trail!”
The Diabetic Food Trail will continue to showcase special diabetic friendly menus across participating restaurants. The menus are engineered to be under a specific calorific meter with the help of chefs and acclaimed nutritionists from the country. Some of the restaurant favourites will also make it to these menus and these dishes will be reengineered to suit the requirements of diabetics.
Also for those who miss their sugar dose, the Diabetic Food Trail will also introduce a special Diabetic Dessert Trail which will allow diabetic patrons to sinfully indulge in a guilt free manner in their favourite dessert. The dessert found on this trail will use no processed sugars. I am already looking forward to be a part of this and I hope this initiative a kind thought reaches new heights sooner so that even the diabetic people can enjoy regular food and desserts guilt free.
