Nourish Yourself at The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa with SuperFoodsRx™
Langkawi, Malaysia – As part of Westin’s ongoing commitment to personal renewal they have teamed up with SuperFoods Partners LLC, owners of the SuperFoodsRx™ brand to become the first hotel brand to create a SuperFoods focused menu for their guests. SuperFoods are known for being health-enhancing and rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients will be the main ingredient in Westin signature dishes. The initiative, which has rolled out to Westin hotels is now the Westin Signature Breakfast- a SuperFoods breakfast selection that is offered at Westin properties.
Based on the nutritional concepts outlined in the bestselling series of SuperFoodsRx™ books, which is published by SuperFoods Partners LLC, the Westin SuperFoodsRx™ menu is not restrictive and is not a diet. Rather, dishes that contain the SuperFoods—fruit, vegetables, grains and proteins which are known to improve well-being and longevity—are marked by the SuperFoodsRx™ greenleaf logo. The logo signifies that a menu item has been approved by SuperFoodsRx™’s team of nutritionists and doctors, and that the selection contains nutritionally significant amounts of one or more of the SuperFoods.
Key to the SuperFoodsRx™ philosophy, and likewise to the new Westin menu, is “food synergy.” Emerging science shows that certain foods play off of each other. *Food synergy refers to foods that, when paired together, are even more nutritious than when they are eaten separately, for example:
- Avocados increase the absorption of antioxidants in other SuperFoods such as spinach and tomatoes.
- Sprinkling spices, such as black pepper on your food can increase the absorption of nutrients found in SuperFoods like spinach, beans, berries, green tea, and broccoli.
- Cinnamon and whole grains such as oats work together to control blood sugar, a win-win for everyone's body!
- Eating a handful of walnuts with any meal helps burn fat after you’ve left the table.
- Honey supplies ‘fuel’ for the healthy bacteria found in low fat and non-fat yogurt.
- Blueberries, wild salmon, avocados and spinach are all "brain food," each supplying a different combination of nutrients which will all work in synergy to provide an optimum cellular environment for our brains.
In addition to incorporating the SuperFoodsRx™ theme, the meeting packages at The Westin Langkawi feature SuperFoodsRx™ tea breaks as well. For inquiries, please email email@example.com or call +604.960.8888.
