FOR THE MIND AND BODY
As with most great ideas, Nidhi Nahata’s, journey towards clean eating began with a personal experience. “I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and was looking for a diet change. This is when I heard about the 21 Day Health Retreat by Sharan and decided to go for it,” says 44-year-old Nahata. In the days spent there, Nahata had turned vegan and took to eating clean. “As a result, my cholesterol went down to 180 from 300,” she says.
Nahata started JustBe Café as an extension of her journey. It now houses a restaurant, a holistic studio, library and a recently opened Sound Therapy room. Built in a charming old bungalow in Sadashiv Nagar, the menu comes as a bit of a surprise. There are pizzas, nachos and even a cup of the quintessential masala chai. “Except, there is no oil used in any of them. The nachos are baked, pizzas are whole-wheat and topped with cashew cheese and the masala chai is made with almond milk,” she says.
JustBe Café also has a store that stocks natural organic skincare, apparel and other aids for holistic living. A farmer’s market each Sunday keeps the courtyard bustling as you buy fresh produce and other knick-knacks.
Sound Therapy, a new introduction, aids deep relaxation through a stringed therapy table and various musical instruments that produce calming sounds and vibrations.
