Where We Are Going Today: Sinless, the guilt-free cafe

  • The Jeddah cafe, which serves a selection of healthy meals, is a boon for those keeping a close eye on their calories

JEDDAH: For those trying to eat more healthily, dining out can be a challenge if you need to count the calories. It can be tricky to choose from a menu when it is unclear whether any of the choices match your diet, making the prospect annoying and off-putting.

Sinless in Jeddah has a solution to this problem, as it only serves food that is healthy and guilt-free. That might sound a bit boring but rest assured that its offerings — from salads to burgers to salted-caramel popcorn brownies — are low-fat and nutritious without compromising on variety or taste.

The cafe was launched by Yasmin and Ramah Nassief, who believe that healthy food is the ultimate life choice. The venue is extremely cozy, decorated throughout with plants.

As for the food, what sounds better than low-fat pizza? Tasty, yet healthy. They also serve a range of healthy juices, including “beet it,” which is a beetroot-based juice, “carrot zinger,” a blend of carrot and ginger, and, my favorite, the “watermelon chia,” which is pretty self-explanatory.

Sinless is the perfect place for those who want to treat themselves, while treating their bodies to something that is actually good for them.

Saudi specialist teams to fight locust invasion

RIYADH: The Saudi Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture has deployed 40 field teams to fight desert locusts.

The teams will operate south of Riyadh (Wadi Al-Dawasir, Al-Sulayyil, and Al-Aflaj), southeast of Asir (Ahad Rafidah, Sarat Abidah, Wadi bin Hashbal, Tathleeth, Bisha, Tareeb, and Al-Khanqah, and their affiliated centers), Najran’s governorates and eastern desert, and the eastern Taif highlands in the Makkah region.

The ministry said that the Locust Control and Migratory Pest Center is implementing efforts to fight the locust problem in targeted areas, where the extent of the risk has been assessed.

Teams are specially equipped to fight the locust invasion, which began as an outbreak in Yemen, Oman and the Empty Quarter.

A total of 24 pest control teams, nine exploration teams, five supervision and monitoring teams and two maintenance teams have been formed to counter the threat.

Teams will be supplied with over 15,000 liters of pesticides as well as safety tools, spare parts, oil, and fuel as logistical support to aid the operation. SPA Riyadh

Measures aim to reduce breeding in the regions and meet the threat of swarms crossing from Oman and Yemen.

Abnormal rainfall in the south of the Arabian Peninsula has coincided with the summer migration of the locust swarms from East Africa toward southwest Asia (India and Pakistan), the ministry said.
