After a long day of work, your belly is usually rumbling for food. All you want to do is wind down, unbutton those pants and take off your shoes, but cooking and the dreaded dishes stands between you and getting to Zen. Forget about tomorrow’s worries and focus on today. Let Menulog help you enter the Zen zone with the best calming meals.
Asparagus has some pretty strange side effects but it also has other great properties that make you so calm you’ll be flying through fairyland in no time. People have long argued over the best way to enjoy it. Some say it’s wrapped in prosciutto but others say it’s on top of a pizza. We have to agree with the latter, this green vegetable is best enjoyed as a pizza topping! Vegan options and gluten-free bases are also available when you order a pizza delivery straight out of the pizza oven.

Did you know that smashed avo is actually the best cure for when you get smashed with work? Full of healthy fat and with more folate than any other fruit, avos taste so good that you won’t worry yourself over not being able to buy a house anytime soon. Forget avocado salad or avocado dip and go all out with the polo avocado: pan fried chicken breast with garlic, white wine & cream, topped with fresh avocado.

Grilled Salmon Salad
Everyone knows fish is good for you, but of all the fishies, salmon is one of the best sources of omega-3. Put some fish on your dish and wind back and relax knowing that you are protecting your heart and reducing anxiety and depression. For the freshest fish dish in town, try a grilled salmon salad served with fresh mixed veggies. Burger lover? Salmon patties are great sandwiched between burger buns and other delicious fillings.

There’s a reason Popeye’s favourite food was spinach – it’s about as packed full of magnesium as his forearms are packed with muscle. Magnesium makes you feel good, and the best way to get it into you is in a delicious palak paneer curry. Always reorder the same biryani or chicken curry? Try something different tonight to get to Zen and order a spinach curry with Indian cheese. We can’t think of a more delicious way to enjoy this leafy green.

Pineapple, Orange and Almond Cake
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. But, what if we told you that there was a fruit even more destined to reduce stress and keep the doctor at bay? Almonds and oranges are full of vitamins that help to reduce stress. You could go and eat an orange with a handful of almonds but we reckon there’s a better way to do it and that’s with a pineapple, orange and almond cake. Of course, dessert in the form of birthday cake or chocolate cake would never go astray.

Mixed Berry Cheesecake Tart
Carrot cake and lemon cheesecake are fine, but for something berry, berry good for transporting you to Zen, try a mixed berry cheesecake tart.
