Virat Kohli Turning Vegetarian

Being from a Punjabi household, Virat Kohli savoured his Butter Chicken growing up. He revealed to us in the interview that he was a hardcore meat-eater. Around 2 years back he turned vegetarian, but not fully Vegan. Around 90% of the dishes he eats are animal protein-free and dairy-free. Since all his life he has been a non-vegetarian. So for him to suddenly turn a vegetarian was quite difficult, due to health reasons. As a result, he did a lot of reading and research on food and nutrition. Once he was sure about the nutritional content of the food and its value of what he eats it was easier for him to switch to a vegetarian diet. Virat Kohli frequently eats the Superfood Salad as he finds it to be a light and balanced meal. He even treated our CTO, Kamiya Jani to a bowl of delicious Superfood Salad and Mushroom Googly Dumplings at his restaurant One8 Commune for Sunday Brunch.
