Food delivery services now cater to health conscious office goers on the move with an occasional indulgence
A slew of new lunch box services is cashing in on the ever growing number of time-strapped professionals with not even a second to spare on packing their lunch, let alone cooking up a wholesome meal. We bring you the best ones out there.
iTiffin’s meals are crafted by food and nutrition scientists and expert chefs. The menu is categorised into a General Wellness Meal Plan, I Care meal plans for diabetics and a School Lunch Box option, all promising healthy vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare with calorie counts displayed alongside. While the I Care Meal Plan and School Lunch Box are yet to be launched, the General Wellness Meal Plan offers lunch and dinner with rotis, rice, a choice of veggies, meats, dal, raita and eggs.
Rs. 1,700 upwards per month.
At LunchBox, the promised focus is on nutritious home-cooked food. Choose from a host of options like a standard vegetarian meal with phulkas, curry, side dishes, rice, dal and yogurt, or go for the non-veg option which also includes fried rice and dessert. The diet-conscious are also catered to as are those looking for simple one-dish affairs — from lemon rice to different kinds of fried rice. Plus, mutton and chicken biriyani on Fridays. The good news is, you can also use their build-your-own-lunchbox option and customise your meal.
For some healthy vegetarian and egg-based options, we suggest you give ItsMyMeal a try. Located in HSR Layout, they cater to offices in the area. On the menu are classic North Indian veggie favourites like chhole bature, parathas, gobi Manchurian, and pav bhaji in addition to a variety of egg dishes from omlettes to biriyani and curries. ItsMyMeal Pampered Tummy comes with dal, egg or paneer, rotis, rice, curry, side and dessert. For something light, you could try their range of grilled sandwiches or phulkas with a paneer dish. Rs.25 upwards. Details: itsmymeal.in
