Organic Food In A Box

The Healthbox - The busy city life is to blame again, but after a day of work, you are so tired to cook anything let alone anything healthy. Then what do you do? You end up eating whatever’s there in the house.

Respecting that importance of food and time in a city like Delhi, Healthbox prepares a genuine healthy meal and deliver it at their office or home. Meals are prepared with locally sourced, fresh and seasonal ingredients. What makes this app different is that essentially, they’re cooking and incorporating everything you’re trying to, but the difference is in the taste. From organic flaxseeds, chia seeds, chef’s special gourmet detox meals, to all day breakfast meals, low fat burgers, whole-wheat wraps, whole-wheat sandwiches, gourmet salads and special detox smoothies, THB has all you sugar-free, gluten-free, skimmed milk, stevia fanatics covered.

Snacking Redefined

Snackosaur - Snacks are meals between meals. It isn’t exactly food but you also need them to keep functioning. But one thing that true about snacks is that you can never have too little of snacks. They go on forever and ever until you end up binge eating.

Worry no more as Snackosaur is here to redefine snacking in India by making it healthful, fun and delicious. The snacks by Snackosaur are new, unique and interesting and both sweet and salted variety.  The subscription boxes are ideal so that a neat package with a few portions of snack arrives at your desk even before that eye or mind has a chance to go wandering. Snackosaur switches up the snacks every fortnight with its subscription service; with 5 different varieties of snacks in each box, they try their best to ensure that you’re less likely to flirt with any unhealthy distractions. Snackosaur delivers in almost every city in India.
