The latest trend we have been observing in the Capital is the increasing number of healthy food delivery services; offering everything from organic dishes to vegan-friendly diet, low calorie options and cold pressed juices.
Instead of ordering our regular biryanis for lunch at work, we’ve for the past two months been trying out several healthy food delivery options. And of all, these 6 healthy food deliveries in Delhi-NCR absolutely won our hearts and tummies!
What: Right from the packaging to the food delivered, you are bound to fall in love with them. They claim that each ingredient in our salad goes through various filtering gates, quality checks and validation from experts. They handpick fresh fruits and vegetables every morning from various places – including reputed vendors, native growers and their own field. Even the salad dressings are prepared in-house using ingredients imported from their valleys of origin. We were being told that most of their ingredients are being sourced from Western Europe, while the condiments are made in-house using native herbs. They also have a good range of cold pressed and sparkling juices on offer.
