Head Chef James' Healthy Favourites
Date: 11.07.2018
Our Head Chef has introduced a range of ‘Healthy Favourites’ to our menu.

Here James tells us the very personal reasons why he was so keen to include these on the White Lion menu.

James says ‘3 years ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes & decided to make some life style changes (a work in progress!), although nobody knows what causes diabetes it is known that body fat stops insulin from working & a healthy lifestyle tends to keep it at bay.

More & more people are eating healthier these days & many feel they can’t eat out as this would normally mean piling on the calories. To address this I have experimented with lots of dishes, many of which are below 500 calories, low in fat & contain 5 of your 5 a day.

My staff have all got on board with this & we are trying to implement a healthy eating at work scheme – it’s notoriously difficult for chefs & kitchen staff as we’re preparing food when everyone else is eating! Staff take it in turns to cook a healthy meal for each other, eating at regular intervals & making sure they eat a proper breakfast.

One of the most popular dishes on our menu at the White Lion is sweet potato, spinach & mushroom curry with cauliflower rice & naan bread. We have teamed up with our sister restaurant Sea Spice on this, we make the curry ourselves & Sea Spice provide us with naan bread, the cauliflower rice is simply cauliflower blended up with a little rapeseed oil & seasoning.

I’m delighted with the popularity of the healthy menu & am excited about adding to the choices on offer in the future too.’
