When I was a child still living with my parents, the idea of having pizza for dinner every night was the ultimate fantasy. The worst part about being an adult is knowing that you *can* have pizza every night, but choosing to eat healthy alternatives instead--because now you know better. Okay, scratch that--the worst part is prepping and cooking said healthy meals! How many times have you caved and just ordered from McDonald's because you were too lazy to cook? Or because you were just bored of eating the same bland roti-subzi your maid cooks every day? What if we told you that there’s a way for you to eat healthy AND interesting food, without spending a single minute in the kitchen? Thankfully for us lazy, fussy eaters--where there’s a will, there’s also great food subscription services.
If you live in and around Bengaluru, ditch the grocery shopping and subscribe to these subscription boxes instead. Your tummy (and tastebuds!) will thank you!
