A Salad Company

Ask any ardent foodie. The one and only problem we face is the sky rocketing numbers in the weighing scale. Forget about bringing the numbers down, to maintain it the same itself is a big struggle. Workout for an hour daily, portion control, healthy eating here n there, all these will vanish in front of a biriyani feast or dessert safari.

I love salads basically. With light dressing I can have it as a meal. But cutting veggies is a task :) Sometime back while browsing I accidentally landed up on the website of A salad company. I bookmarked it and moved on. One fine day, Sreevarshini, the brain behind the new start up pinged me and asked me to try the salads. I happily said yes and insisted that I'll pay for my food. Their website is neat. They list their week's menu. Order has to be placed a day in advance. They have package options like, trial meal, meal for three days, five days and 21 days. Choose your plan, subscribe and the salad will be at your place on time. I went through the menu and wanted to have three salads on non-consecutive days. Spoke with varshini and went ahead and subscribed for three salads.

My first order was grilled chicken with whole wheat pita bread and green pepper hummus. Delivery was on time and was neatly packed. The meal had about 150-200gms of grilled chicken, 4 pieces of halved pita, few slices of cucumber with mint dressing, few slices of boiled egg and green pepper hummus. The meat was fantabulous. It was not even warm, even then the meat was soft n juicy. The cucumber had a nice crunch to it and the whole thing was tied by the green pepper hummus. Hummus had mild note of capsicum which was fresh and tasty. I stuffed the entire meal in two pita halves and enjoyed it thoroughly. I felt 4 pita to be too much for the quantity of the chicken n other stuffs. Just 2 pita halves was enough for me to satisfy my hunger.

After couple of days, the next meal was Mexican chicken salad. This was a four bean salad served on a bed of Mexican herb rice along with the Mexican spiced chicken. Beans (red kidney beans, chickpeas, green peas and white bean) were well cooked. The Mexican rice was tangy and went well with the beans and the chicken. The chicken again was juicy and well cooked. I felt the portion of rice was little bit more.

The last meal was the harissa spiced chicken with grilled veggies and mashed sweet potatoes. What a delightful meal it was. Spicy and juicy chicken with tangy grilled veggies and the sweet mashed potatoes were doing a jugalbandhi of flavours. Licked the box clean :)

Each meal is well balanced. While talking to varshini, I learnt that they pack each meal based on it's calorie content and each individual portion is weighed separately. All the three salads didn't make me feel full and at the same time I wasn't hungry either. They don't use artificial flavours or preservatives. Their "No" list is quiet huge. They use millets, whole wheat flour, butter and so on which are full of nutrition. One meal costs 155 bucks. Given the taste and quantity and the health benefits its absolutely worth the money. Definitely going back for more :)

The search for healthy food covering various cuisines, led Sreevarshini, a foodie herself to start this venture. A salad company proves that healthy food doesn't have to be boring. For now they cover most of the South Chennai and have future plans of expanding the delivery area further. Also healthy breakfast ranges are to be launched soon.
