A new year, a new beginning, a new you! Self-improvement is the top resolution many of us make when we flip a page to the new year. This includes staying positive, being active and eating right.
If you love the food scene in Doha but want to start a healthy eating habit, that kale leaf won’t cut it. The latest collection on Zomato, Healthy Eating, has the top go to spots with delicious, healthy eats. Here’s the top ten rated healthy eats from the collection.
Where: Al Muthanna Complex, Al Hilal Rating: 3.5 / 5 Lowdown: If you have friends who aren’t really attempting to eat healthy this year, this spot will have you all breaking bread in peace. With a healthy section in the menu listing calories, protein, fiber and carb count, you can chow down at Crepeaway guilt free.
9. Al Jazeera Cafe
Where: Building 4, Katara Cultural Village Rating: 3.6 / 5 Lowdown: Conceptualized by the Al Jazeera network, you can start your day on the right track. Enjoy your meal with the latest news, interactive setting and beautiful ambiance. Try one of the fruit smoothies, herbal infused teas or grab a bite knowing you’re doing good by your body and global farms.
8. Dine Smart Restaurant
Where: Lulu Hypermarket, Barwa City Rating: 3.6 / 5 Lowdown: We all love to eat while we shop! And Dine Smart wants you to eat smart while you shop. Whether you’re craving Italian, Chinese, a sandwich or a simple salad, you can eat knowing you didn’t ruin your New Year’s resolution to keep it healthy and within budget.
7. Salad Boutique
Where: Aspire Park, Al Waab Rating: 3.7 / 5 Lowdown: They aren’t just famous for those large bowls of salads anymore. This will be good news for your anti-salad eating friends of yours craving risotto, pasta or even a burger. You can dine within the bright ambience, lounging in the oversized chairs indoors or dine under the stars in this cool winter weather.
6. Which Wich
Where: Medina Centrale, The Pearl-Qatar Rating: 3.8 / 5 Lowdown: Where the self-proclaimed “superior sandwiches” are made in the heart of The Pearl-Qatar. Grab a sandwich paper bag and like Aladdin, make wishes for the sandwich genies to grant on the spot. Feeling adventurous? Drop the bread and wish for a lettucewich.
5. Chef’s Garden
Where: Marwan Club, Education City Rating: 3.9 / 5 Lowdown: The horses in close distance, the greenery all around, the healthy dishes on the table. Where else can you get all three but the Chef’s Garden? Next to the Equestrian Club, you can’t go wrong with the food or view as many of the foodies have raved about in their reviews.
4. Evergreen Organics
Where: Qanat Quartier, Pearl Qatar Rating: 4.0 / 5 Lowdown: Co-founded by renowned Qatari foodie, Ghanim AlSulaiti, this vegan haven is all about eating and surrounding yourself with wholesome goodness. The very popular fresh pressed juices are now bottled up, so you can take a few on the go until your next visit.
3. Jones The Grocer
Where: The Gate, Dafna Rating: 4.1 / 5 Lowdown: With a new healthy menu added to the original, it’s no wonder JTG has climbed up the ranks. Already a popular breakfast spot, this JTG branch is still a top favorite with a die-hard Doha foodie following.
2. Zaatar we Zeit
Where: Opposite Souq Waqif Art Center, Souq Waqif Rating: 4.2 / 5 Lowdown: With many locations around Doha, the Souq branch tops the list for this popular Lebanese chain. This breakfast hot spot makes you feel all the good feels as you feast on a budget before shopping in the historic bazaar.
1. Meesh Me-Time Cafe
Where: Crowne Plaza Business Park, Najma Rating: 4.5 / 5 Lowdown: The highest rated healthy eat in the collection is a spot with “me time” in its name. It’s that kind of attitude that’s captured the hearts of Doha’s inhabitants.

I swear I’m working on a few new rants, including an upcoming rant series called W.I.S.S. (which will be explained and started in a few days!) among other things. In the meantime, I know I had promised to post some of my food creations from time to time. Today, the healthiest lunch I’ve ever had!
A makeshift salad consisting of blackberries, granny smith apples, tomatoes (I see it as a fruit!) and small cucumbers with a dash of apple cider and honey! Seriously, what is wrong with me?! I don’t do healthy but it tastes so good!!
