With people getting increasingly health-conscious, they are turning to healthier food options, and restaurants are adapting their menus to meet that demand.

The famous South African restaurant Nando's, was always a hot favorite for those who were watching their diet without wrecking their calorie or macros. (Trust me, I know a few who keep a count of it, on a daily basis). If you are rushing to order, quick tip - simply pick a lean protein like 250 gm of a chicken butterfly ( 471 Kcal) and add Spinach (148 Kcal) or Chargrilled veg at (82 Kcal) and if you like add freshly squeezed orange juice and done!

If you are on the hunting for a delicious meal without wrecking your diet, you may want to try Nando's. (

A range of healthy, hecks at Nando's

Nando's is not just famous for its art but also its hacks. There are many ways you can try the hacks of eating a healthy, guilt-free Nando's. Ask for skinless chicken, watch the grams and Kcal highlighted in the menu, add greener options along with chicken, like Quinoa salads, avocados, halloumi, sweet potato mash. As the chicken is always flame-grilled, never fried, it just makes it a better option for you.

Not many know that Nando's sauce is gluten-free. So is the chicken when you eat it on its own. Once you inform the restaurant manager or as they call them 'patraos' they can guide you better.

Avid Nando's fan, claims that PERi-PERi chicken is just so addictive. A couple of the secrets are - chicken is sourced locally, delivered fresh, and never frozen. Before they go on the grills, they are marinated in Nando's secret sauce for 24-hours, so the flavor goes right through the bone.

PERi-PERi, also known as the African Bird's Eye Chilli, is the key to Nando's flame-grilled, PERi-PERi chicken. It's grown in the African soil, so the magic starts from the ground up. It tastes incredible, but the benefits don't stop there as the PERi-PERi chili seeds are rich in Vitamins A, B, and C.

Gluten-free sauces, salads and more

Nando's sauce does not add preservatives or add ingredients that contain gluten to any of the sauces. It includes sauces used for the preparation of the flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken and the table sauces. Also, salads and the chicken range, are all gluten-free. PERi-PERi is a natural preservative that prevents from adding weird or unnatural ingredients to the sauces.

If you have a food allergy, please let the Patrão (Manager) know so that you can find out exactly what's in the food.
