Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit Ups the Ante on Healthy Dining Options With Fit Bowls, Vegan Sushi and Even Anti Flu Juice
Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit has expanded its healthy dining options. A highlight is special Vegan Sushi developed by Nikki Sharp, a Los Angeles-based health coach, yoga instructor, vegan chef and best-selling author of Meal Prep Your Way to Weight Loss and The 5-Day Real Food Detox, who hosted the resort’s 2018 Wellnessing Getaway. Other additions include a fit bowl with 20 different vegetable, grain and fruit options to mix and match and four other types of bowls with novel healthy ingredients. This can be teamed up with four different juice combos including one designed for the flu season. The new lineup of offerings complements the resort’s vegan and vegetarian tasting menus offered at its fine dining restaurants.
The unique vegan sushi is made with quinoa and cauliflower rice, purple cabbage, red pepper, carrots, avocado and cilantro.
To make one’s own salad, complements like almonds, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, amaranth, grated coconut, chia, linseed, dried cranberries, dried blackberries, spirulina, dates, and prunes can be added to different types of lettuces like romaine, kale, red leaf, arugula, spinach, green leaf, little gem, and mesclun greens. A variety of vinaigrettes are provided for dressing. Four types of bowls are offered from a quinoa, chickpea, sweet potato purée, beetroot, and sunflower seed mix and rice noodles with black beans, French beans, and green beans to a compilation of wild rice, lentils, sweet potato with paprika, cabbage salad, carrots, and brussels sprouts and an açai bowl. Juice options include a signature Green Juice; Anti-Flu Juice with ginger, orange, lemon, pineapple, and honey; Detox Juice with pineapple, spinach, beetroot, ginger, and coconut water; and Energetic Juice with beetroot, carrot, celery, green apple, cucumber, and coconut water.
