It’s incredibly difficult for a foodie blogger to stay thin without resorting to ill advised bulimia. Post Christmas is the most difficult time to fit into one’s clothes, so I’ve turned to a nifty little app called My Fitness Pal (FREE) which counts calories and scans bar-codes. This app has allowed me a platry 1200 calories per day. I might have been stuck at home eating salad if it wasn’t for the arrival of M, a unique dining and drinking concept in the heart of London’s City.
As though he knew the struggle ahead of me Head Chef Jarad McCarrol (formerly Chilton Firehouse) has created a very special Detox Diet to kick-start the New Year. M RAW restaurant one of the 100-cover restaurants within M, will be offering a three meal daily diet adding up to a mere 800 calories. The menu features a gluten, wheat and dairy free Coconut Quinoa Porridge and RAW juice breakfast, Lunch of a Sashimi sampler platter and a Shitake and Kombu gluten free Ramen Dinner. The perfect combination of nutritious and delicious.
This fits in well with those who are fond of last years fad favourite the 5:2 diet, and the growing population of self diagnosed celiacs.
M RAW also features a Tartare and Tiradito bar, a casual dining concept featuring brightly coloured seating, sharing tables and high stools. The bar serves up nutritious and mouthwatering tartares, sashimi, pulsing salads, cured and smoked dishes and yakitori. Signatures dishes include: Scallops and Bacon made with Scallop Tartare, Blackmore Wagyu Brisket and Wasabi Ramen and White Chocolate and Lavender soup with Lamington soldiers. I’m a sucker for Lamingtons, but not quite sure if they fit in with the resolutions….
