If your fitness is suffering because there’s no time to flip nachni rotis in the morning, just order a healthy tiffin
While the whole city is on a detox diet, Shonaalii Sabherwal’s tiffin helps you flush out toxins. The concept of macrobiotic revolves around dividing your meal into 50-60% whole grains, 25-30% vegetables and 5-10% beans. It’s a multi cuisine dabba where you get to sample exotic cuisines with Greek paella, Mediterranean taboule, Thai curry, Japanese sushi on rotational basis. All food is completely free of any dairy products, sugar and artificial preservatives. You even have desserts such as a gajar ka halwa, tofu cheese cake, apple pie, almond cookies – all made with natural sweetener derived from brown rice or barley.
Sonal’s Healthy Tiffin Service delivers homemade diet dabbas across the city. The dabbas are made sans oil, cream, butter, rice or paneer. For starters, you can slurp on soups – mushroom, mixed vegetable, palak or tomato. A serving of sprout salad takes care of your vitamin intake. You can even get a green leafy vegetable subji with gheefree chapattis – nachni or bajra bhakri – to eat it with. There’s also fruit salad for dessert.

Calorie Care is the city’s only calorie counted meal service. This place has a line of nutritionists to plan your meals, depending on your bodies’ sugar, salt, protein, calorie requirement. The fairly diverse repertoire serves Indian delights such as masala yoghurt salad, louki-chanadal, bhindi bharwan with dal, chapatti and chaas. If home-style food bores you, then pick from pasta Neapolitan, tangy tofu in black bean sauce, khimchi and others dishes from their international section. All meals have high, low and medium versions, packed in microwavable boxes.
