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.

OIC, GCC chiefs discuss boosting cooperation

RIYADH: The secretaries-general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) met in Riyadh for talks on further strengthening ties between the two bodies.

Head of the OIC, Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen, congratulated his GCC counterpart, Dr. Naif bin Falah Al-Hajraf, on his appointment to the position earlier this year.

During the meeting, they discussed joint implementation mechanisms for the OIC-GCC cooperation agreement and exchanged views on regional issues relevant to member states of both organizations.

Meanwhile, Al-Othaimeen spoke by phone with the former GCC secretary-general and current Bahraini minister of foreign affairs, Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani. Their conversation touched on the OIC’s efforts to help stop the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic in member states.

In relation to the organization of this year’s Hajj season, Al-Zayani praised the decisive actions of Saudi Arabia aimed at protecting Muslim pilgrims from the health threat posed by the COVID-19 outbreak.
