So what’s new on the pod summer menu? How about a foodie favourite breakfast of avocado and feta on toast with a fresh chilli kick? Or perhaps a Summer Glow Mango porridge to fuel up the Caribbean way? As a bit of healthy fun, they have bought a (non-alcoholic) Pina Colada to their blended-to-order Blitz range. Handmade with fresh pineapple, spinach, coconut, spinach and orange, there’s no need for added sugar. pods’ power ingredients are scattered through their healthy snacks with a Matcha yoghurt made with quinoa and pistachio and a refreshing Strawberry yoghurt topped with micro basil. The new Mediterranean tomato, nut-free pesto and mozzarella salad hero’s healthy fats with a grassy olive oil dressing. Served with or without chicken. Lunchtimes are always an adventure at pod, so its Balinese chicken salad or wrap ticks more than a few boxes. Crying out Indonesia, they’re made with chicken, Balinese dressing, mayo, coconut, coriander, peas, beetroot, seeds and cabbage – fragrant, and both sweet and spicy. It’s superfood heaven with a little bit of everything combined – and both less than 400 calories. Famous for their exotic hot pods, the new Indian Pasanda, with or without chicken is the perfectly spiced hero of the summer menu; a dish packed with authentic India, without sending you packing! One of its new baguettes might tempt you with the Vietnamese/French fusion that is the Banh mi pulled pork - or try the mozzarella, pesto, avocado and sun-blush tomato version – both served on superseed baguettes and packed with goodness and flavour. pod’s chefs source only the finest ingredients for their in house developed recipes, taking their bi-weekly chef special’s to an even higher level – check the Brazilian Xin Xim chicken stew, Piccalilli pulled pork and the Sri Lankan chicken, each served on three grain rice and topped with fresh herbs and served with a delicious side salad. Refreshing yet complex in flavour – you’ll know what pod mean when you are finishing the last mouthful of these taste adventures.
