December was the month of cakes, roasts, cocktails and whisky. And now that the celebrations are out of the way, it's time we start fueling the 2017 engine with some good, healthy food. Now perhaps this year, like every year, you will start with resolutions you'll probably not keep, but we would like to help you keep the healthy eating and getting fit one. Now, Hyderabad may be famous for its biriyani and shahi tukda, but there is no dearth of health conscious people in the city and neither is there a dearth of places that serve healthy food. Here are some places in the city that serve some great healthy food:
Drunken Monkey, Madhapur
Open: 8AM to 1AM

Terrassen, Banjara Hills
