BurJuman JYSK UAE Coffee Morning – Review
Spending an early morning at the J Cafe JYSK BurJuman with Dr. Rajul Matkar
When it comes to mall events, Burjuman Dubai is leading the way towards engaging with its customers in the most productive and proactive manner. Recently, the mall organized a talk with Dr. Rajul Matkar at The J Cafe – JYSk, on the nutritional needs of women across all phases in life.
The talk divulged some beneficial information about women health, breaking long-standing myths and cultural inhibitions that restrain women from consuming nutritionally appropriate food at different stages of their lives. Dr. Rajul Matkar initiated the talk explaining the necessary nutritional essentials that are to be consumed through food, including, protein, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, calcium, and fibers. While the talk established the scientific reasons behind the need for right nutrition, it was interesting to learn that women can consume many nutrients from nontraditional sources, for example, Calcium can be consumed from nondairy calcium-rich food, which includes green beans, tahini, kale, and tofu. Similarly, there are many plant-based proteins that can be consumed instead of regular meat consumption. The top plant-based proteins include quinoa, chia seeds, lentils, broccoli and more.
What the talk aimed at was to teach the women to be aware of their body requirements at different stages of their lives and make smart decisions while planning a meal. One piece of advice that took us by surprise was to look out for ’empty calories’, which basically meant to avoid food that just fills the stomach and offers no nutrition. This could be as simple as avoiding a packed fruit juice and consuming a whole fruit, to replacing fried fast food with slow cooked meals and other healthier options. Smarter choices can be the little changes we make in our lives that can help us fight diseases and have an overall positive effect on our lives.
The talk was organized at the lovely The J cafe located at the famous Scandinavian lifestyle store; JYSK. Since it was a morning talk, a healthy and delicious breakfast spread welcomed the guests, complete with seasonal smoothies, tea, and coffee. The JYSK at the Burjuman is also worth a visit for any lifestyle and home decor needs, offering plenty of inspirational ideas and decor options.
