The brand has launched the first pillar, Restore (Food), in collaboration with
renowned nutritionist and food consultant, Dr. Ankita Jalori. The Leela has re-

curated menus to achieve the right balance between health needs and gastronomic
expectations by focusing on millets, lean proteins, low-fat dairy and whole grains.
Speaking about the launch, Mr. Anuraag Bhatnagar, Chief Operating Officer,
The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts said, “Challenges of the contemporary
world and our fast-paced lifestyles often pose a disruption for our overall health.
With Aujasya by The Leela, we are embarking on a lifelong commitment to holistic
wellbeing. Our first step with Dr. Jalori has paved the way for a renewed take on
food and nutrition. Her expertise in the field combined with her unmatched
experience has enabled us to brew signature dishes with a renewed nutritional focus.
We are delighted to begin this journey on such a meaningful note and will soon
expand our wellbeing offering as we build on the concept of the 2Rs of Wellbeing
with a signature touch of The Leela, while staying true to our brand ethos of placing
the guest at the centre of everything we do.”
Dr. Ankita Jalori, Food and Nutrition Consultant said, “Having worked in the
nutrition and food industry for over 20 years, I am delighted to work with The Leela
on conceptualizing Aujasya by The Leela. Today people have become more aware
and conscious of their wellbeing. Balancing nutrition with taste can be quite a
challenge. My science and knowledge and the skill and creativity of the Chefs at The
Leela have come together to create this unique brand program for The Leela and I
