Why Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill is the healthy restaurant option this January in London…
With the beginning of a New Year, we often find ourselves pondering and reflecting on the next twelve months ahead, but mostly how we over-indulged on all those treats in December. Our conscience forces us to opt for a more healthy restaurant and lunch/dinner choice in London this January.
As January is the month of “Goddess Detox” the following shall serve as a wee guideline for the route to relieve our body of the odd pound(s) gained over the festive period. For over 100 years Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill has been serving up the most exquisite seafood and most delicious oysters in London. Whereas some might think of seafood and oysters as simply delicatessen (you are definitely not wrong), however little is known how beneficial these “les fruits de mar” are to our health.
Oysters are a most sufficient and excellence source of vitamin A and B as well as zinc, iron and calcium. Further, they are dramatically low in food energy (kj) for example a dozen oysters have only 110 calories. So anyone looking to get in shape this year can load their body with the essential nutrients it needs without a guilty conscience.
As mentioned the high level of minerals is rather impressive and contributes majorly to increase the bone density and strength and hence protecting our bodies from developing conditions and diseases like osteoporosis. The massive amount of zinc in an oyster has proven very beneficial to numerous points of our health.
A quicker wound healing and a boosted immune system against various infections are only a few of them. They certainly make for the perfect meal choice for cold winter months.
As a vital mineral, zinc is also important for proper growth and development of children and adults, which makes oysters a feast for the entire family.
Now, we are fully aware that oysters might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but luckily Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill has so many more delicious dishes on offer to help you detox this January.
Let’s have a closer look on seafood, in particular sushi. It has an enormous amount of health benefits including the ability to protect the heart, regulating hormones and cancer prevention.
Looking at our bodies as a working machine it is clear the heart is the engine that keeps it all pumping. So it is only natural and in our highest interest to protect and nurture this machine. Sushi has a concentrated form of omega-3 fatty acids and its delicious taste makes it the easiest way to access this source of good cholesterol. It keeps the bad cholesterol in our body at bay, minimises the risk of clogged arteries and helps to reduce blood pressure effectively. It’s clear that sushi is more than “just” fish.
Mainly served in combination with wasabi and ginger their active components help fight and neutralize free radicals. To be precise, both elements have an anti-carcinogenic and anti-mutagenic character and prevent any mutation of healthy cells into cancer.
Well, there you have it! Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill is the place to be as we will not only fill your tummies, but make sure your health is at its best this year.
