After a week of endlessly indulging in fries and pies, Fiber is the ultimate destination to have a balanced meal. Healthy food has had the reputation of being tasteless or fade, but Fiber provides meals that are not just healthy, but also finger-licking good.

The wholesome and nutritious restaurant is just about 300 meters away from AUB’s main gate, making it a highly accessible place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Unlike the typical boring diet green salad dieticians prescribe, Fiber offers a variety of consistent meals.

One of Fiber’s downsides, one you should know about from the start, is that you basically pay the price for your health. Most items are at an average of $10-15, whether it is a morning wrap, tapas, salad, sandwich, or platter.

All items on the menu are labeled with the calorie count, with the most calorie dense meal being the Pumpkin Burger at Kcal 550.

Luckily, you can also find a few items that are quite affordable like the Lentil Salad, Pumpkin Soup, Protein Pancakes, Mexican Omelet and Penne Alfredo, all under $7.

In terms of ambiance, the place has this green theme going one. The green furniture, green placemats, and green walls, give the vibe of a botanical garden.

The place also has its own dietitian that can find a diet plan that suits your lifestyle best. The package will include, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as a snack to keep you sane when hunger strikes. They also have detox plans, for those interested in a different experience.

Not only that, Fiber can adapt to any of their customers’ needs. They can mend the plans to suit any diet, be it vegan or vegetarian. A personal favorite is their Veggie Wrap. A mix of grilled and colorful veggies, such as eggplant, carrot, mushroom and squash fill the brown tortilla, which is topped with a layer of melted cheese and a light tomato pepper sauce for that extra touch of juiciness.

For only Kcal 180, this wholesome wrap keeps your hunger intact until dinner time, with its high nutrient content.

Another staple to have at Fiber is one of their pizzas. Their selection includes plain and cheesy pizzas as well as meaty pizzas with a dash of pizzaz.

The dine-in experience is enjoyable with their attentive service and complimentary starter being a hummus dip with veggie sticks.

The healthy eatery trend is definitely blooming in Lebanon, with Fiber being one of the recommended stations for a nourishing meal and remarkable taste.screen-shot-2017-02-03-at-11-17-33-am screen-shot-2017-02-03-at-11-17-39-am
