Loren plans to blue your mind
The Loren Hotel has launched a healthy menu complete with green juices, portion control and vegan options.
The Blue Mind menu is available now at the Pink Beach Club, The Loren's oceanside restaurant.
“Our Blue Mind menu is an extension of The Loren's sustainable food mission,” executive chef Tim Sullivan said. “We source as much as we can locally, supporting our trusted Bermudian fisherman and farmers and ensuring that we only use high-quality, fresh ingredients that have travelled the least amount of distance. Our menus change with the season, so we are always using food at its peak freshness. The Blue Mind menu was created with the same seed-to-table and sea-to-table commitment but with an added focus on supporting a healthy lifestyle, treating your body well by caring about what you put into it.”
The menu is plant and lean protein focused while incorporating portion control and balance.
The idea is to enjoy the Blue Mind menu alongside the peaceful sounds of the ocean at the Pink Beach Club and turn off the noise from the outside world, even just for a little while.
The name ”Blue Mind” was inspired by marine biologist Wallace J Nichols, who believed that we all have a “blue mind” — a mildly meditative state characterised by calm, peacefulness and unity, triggered when we're in or near water.
“Our location already has a great sense of tranquility and now we are pleased to offer guests the Blue Mind menu inspired by the natural environment which surrounds us,” Mr Sullivan said. “Our new food offerings will embrace energy, health, and all-day performance with options that are low in salt, bad fats and refined sugar.”
On the autumn Blue Mind menu, diners will find green juices and smoothies, and blue mind embrace bowls like the vegan black bean taco bowl, General Tso cauliflower bowl and fall vegetable tian with Wadson's Farm roasted chicken, butternut squash & toasted pumpkin seeds, among other dishes.
The new menu is available at the Pink Beach Club at The Loren, open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
