How many days in a row can you eat a salad for lunch?
If you’re new here, here’s something new for you (and so old for you regulars this side of town!) – I’ve been trying to get fit over the last few months. The first and easiest thing to do was eat healthier, or so I thought. When you work in Gurgaon and the only thing you can cook is Maggi (yayyy – ban! *rolls eyes*), the options for healthy eating are limited. I discovered a place that serves the best salad (as good as the ones I had in New York!) but…
How many days in a row can you eat salad for lunch?
My palate was bored out of its mind, ordering healthy food from the same places over and over again. I had started eyeing shammi kebabs and chicken biryani home delivery restaurants on Zomato. My will to eat bland food just for the sake of eating healthy was fast dwindling.
Enter – the folks at Eatonomist.
I had heard about them, but had never ordered because I kept thinking – no one will deliver just one soup! And such delicious sounding meals can’t possibly be healthy. And…I’m sure they’re not reasonably priced.
Turns out, they will, they are, and they sure as hell are! Eatonomist has officially found the perfect balance between tasty, healthy and filling meals. And I propose a re-writing of their slogan from “Healthy Delicious Convenient” to – food heaven for the waist-minded brides in Gurgaon!
What We Did
I decided to try out a lunch a day from Eatonomist’s extensive menu, for a whole working week. You know, mirror the hectic schedule of a working bride who is planning her wedding while completing projects late into the night. Could I manage to eat healthy meals that satiated my stomach and nutrition needs, without letting work and my taste buds suffer?
I was unsure how I would feel about a pre-decided lunch menu for a whole week. I typically eat on a whim – whatever I feel like, whenever I feel like. And the last thing I am is an easy person to feed. I am finicky about my food, and I think I have the discerning taste buds of a Masterchef Australia judge! :p
