Top 8 Healthy Places to Eat in Dubai

Struggling to diet or have a major sweet tooth? Look no further than UMI's top list of healthy places to eat around Dubai! Sometimes we notice ourselves snacking a little too much on sweet or fatty foods, but it can be hard to find alternatives. There are many benefits to incorporating healthy eating habits into your daily routine: lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and better general health. While it's initially attractive to start a new diet full of organic, green food, it’s easy to lose enthusiasm for always taking the low fat, low sugar option.
