National: The international lifestyle channel LF launches another interesting show titled ‘Fit & Fast – Fuel your Brain.’ The show sees Chef & Host Rishim Sachdeva for the first time on Indian television where he takes viewers through a holistic approach towards fuelling the brain. His expertise on the show goes beyond food by speaking to experts and addressing multiple topics on mental fitness which need a lot of attention in today’s busy life. This show busts the daily myths about the brain and its fitness in equal measure. It also talks about specially curated recipes for the brain, special advice from experts and showcases a series of games to make one think and feel better.
Each episode has one focal point such as memory, energy, vision, communication, moods, addiction, decision making/problem solving, sleep, stress, senses, libido levels, motor skills and alertness/concentration. With all this Chef Rishim brings his affable self while addressing a serious issue with the utmost ease. He uses food as the power product on this show. Chef Rishim is seen in conversation with the expert whose advice is an inspiration for the dish he makes and then goes on to talk about it. A simple solution that has been available in the kitchen all along.
The season includes various superfood-heroes some traditional and others slightly more new-age. Hence, there is something for everybody. Chef Rishim uses his expertise of over 16 years where he has mastered the art of presenting dishes that are simple and succulent yet easy.
