Wonderful taste of being healthy


Nestled in a quiet little lane in Jayanagar, Bangalore is Enerjuvate, perhaps the only space in the city which wonderfully combines health activities and healthy tasty food. 

I am naturally resistant to anything offered to me as 'good for health' because usually 'good for health' often turns out to be tiring, bland, tasteless and uninteresting. 

I am happy that Enerjuvate proved my previous trends wrong. Here's a photo tour of my visit to Enerjuvate...


The cafe at Enerjuvate is named as Aasan - Payasam. Aasan indicating the curated set of energy infusing physical activities like yoga, kalari, pilates,dance and Payasam indicating the tasty food you get as a reward for the workout...


I was impressed by the sleek setting and creative decor with multi level seating area offering private hangout zones...






As I enter, I was offered the very refreshing Rose Chia seed Lemon Spritser...





Sunayna Hiran, the co-founder is a true believer & follower of a healthy lifestyle. She has been practicing yoga for many years and wanted to share the positive impact with everyone around her...


Abhay, her better half has successfully battled with weight for years...


You would want to start with a completely nutritious and tasty Mezze platter. Carrot, basil and sesame hummus with vegetable sticks and crackers...


We headed to Euphoria for some rejuvenating Yoga...


The experienced instructor who is a former wrestler pushed us to do more than we believed we could...




Darshana Nahata, the other co-founder has a passion for design. We can see her imprint in the incredibly creative decor...


Antioxidant smoothie with goodness of green tea and fresh greens calms your senses after the yoga session...

The orange and chili juice provides you with the Vitamin C and tingles the taste bud with that hint of chili...



In the end the seasonal Strawberry Mojito will cleanse your palate and make it ready for the delicious meal ahead...



The menu is curated by Monika Manchanda, the forever smiling baker, blogger and food consultant...


Thai Guava Salad - When seasonal sweet guavas pair with a sour & spicy Thai style dressing, magic is created...



Watermelon delight - Dressed in a creamy vegan sauce with crunch of pumpkin seeds and hint of chili will leave you pleasantly surprised...



Avocado, Corn & Black Rice - Warm grilled corn, creamy Avacado and the wonder Indian grain black rice come together in this jar salad to create a fabulous symphony...


Tandoori Tofu with naan crisp - Warm Tandoori tofu & lentils with crisp naan bits is the salad which screams comfort meal. Who said salads need to be bland and boring...



Carrot ginger soup with millets & house salad - Sweetness of carrot balanced with sharpness of ginger together create a perfect winter solace...



Tomato Rasam with cold red rice salad - Move over tomato soup, we have a much flavorful tomato rasam to add to the spice quotient. The cold red rice salad further enhances the flavor...


Scrambled Tofu Wrap - A spiced tofu bhurji wrapped in whole wheat & jowar beetroot wrap served with red bell pepper dip...


Ragi Vegetable Pancakes - Ragi pancakes with vegetables for added crunch, served with a podi spiced vegan sauce, spicy mint chutney and house salad. This will change your mind about pancakes for good...


Pumpkin & Potato Roesti - A refreshing take on the roesti with slight sweetness of the vitamin rich pumpkin, topped with beet & carrot salad and basil flavored creamy vegan dip...



Saffron drink to wash down the food...


The pizzas are completely redefined with amaranth flour and ragi flour bases. The toppings are nutritious with vegan & no cheese options available for many of them,

Salad on a pizza is the ideal holiday-healthy combination of oranges, rocket leaves and fresh feta cheese on a ragi base to create a delicious burst of flavors...



House pesto with grilled baby corns, broccoli and garlic topped with cheese...



Honey roasted apple wedges, rosemary twigs, roasted garlic, chilies topped with feta and walnuts...




Enerjuvate offers gluten free, vegan and processed sugar free desserts that you can enjoy guiltlessly. 

A tricolor orange, kiwi, and vanilla chia seeds cake to mark India's Republic Day. This gluten free cake is the perfect dessert for that fresh citrus feel. One that leaves your sugar craving satisfied yet leaves your body happy as well...


Strawberry, banana & basil nice cream - Relish the flavor in this one...


The key to end any happy meal is a nice warm drink. Enerjuvate's infusions are based on the principle of cleansing and detox with healing and nutritious properties of herbs and spices. With options like rose & betel leaves, thyme & lemon, rosemary & orange they are fitting end to the delicious and wholesome meal or a quick recharge for people on the go... 


One can always expect to walk in at their boutique called #HEP and find some new products that stand out in design, craftsmanship and utility, carefully curated by the founders from across India...


Overall, the experience was both energy infusing and rejuvenating. I can say with absolute certainty that a visit to Enerjuvate can make the most snooty 'health regimen' haters sit up and take notice.

Leaving you with some smiles...

  14. I like the Stop Wishing Start Doing sign Shiju. This applies to me, I bought a heap of gym equipment to help me get fit & lose weight but am not good at keeping up regular workouts. Then I wish I could lose weight...
