The Health Box prepares all its meals from scratch {we’d suggest placing your orders a little in advance} using fresh produce from across the city. Choose from a range of wholewheat burgers, salads, grilled sandwiches, full meals such as the Thai Steamed Fish and Pan Fried Chicken, pasta, smoothies and all-day breakfast.

The best part? Their portions are huge and don’t leave you craving more. They deliver across Gurgaon & south Delhi.

Where: Order online here {delivery only}

Lean Chef

Think regular comfort food {burgers, pizza, pasta, wraps} but made using non-fatty ingredients. Although we weren’t super happy with Lean Chef‘s salad, we’d recommend going for the Southwest Chicken Wrap or the Hummus Burger {chicken/vegetarian}.

Their Rocket Pizza completely covered in greens is a refreshing change, but this comes without cheese {unless you request otherwise} which can really dampen the taste factor. We hear their Hummus Chicken Pizza and Pulled Chicken Pizza are winners.

Salad Days

Salad Days has saved us from going off our healthy resolves time and again. We love their website and how easy it is to order online – everything on the menu comes with pictures.

If you’re a noob, we’d say start with the Asian Chicken Noodle, the Chicken Santa Fe or the Smoky Tomato Mozzarella. They also have a bunch of fruit-based salads and cold pressed juices.

World In A Box

World in a Box makes use of superfoods {broccoli, quinoa, apple cider vinegar, red rice, sweet potatoes, cinnamon} and nutritionally-potent ingredients. Think gourmet meals but at a fraction of the costs.

We especially liked the Avocado Bacon Chicken Sandwich and the Crispy Cottage Cheese Sandwich.

You can also choose from a range of smoothies infused with honey for a sweet kick. World in a Box delivers across Gurgaon, but delivers to Delhi only for a minimum order of INR 1,000.

Smoothie Factory

As the name suggests, Smoothie Factory specialises in… smoothies. And does them well. Our personal favourites include the Factory Original and the Very Berry, but we suggest you take a pick according to your requirements {they’ve got specialty smoothies aimed toward purposes like meal replacement, energising, post work out etc}.

When it comes to food, they’re winning with their multigrain waffles, pasta, open toasties, sandwiches and salads.

Big sandwiches and salads loaded with vegetables- that’s Frsh‘s USP and a good one at that. We’re enamoured by their Herb Chicken Peanut Sandwich  {garlic-flavoured chicken with a low-fat signature sauce} and the Orange, Nuts, and Chicken Salad {herb-marinated grilled chicken, oranges, sweet corns, walnuts, raisins, and peanuts all tossed together}.

For a sweet refreshing means to wash it all down with, try the Passion Fruit Chia Lemonade.

Farmout is your go-to place for organic meals; the sheer variety here will amaze you. Choose from their full leaf organic teas, flavoured lassis {blackberry, anyone?}, bruschettas, soups and a super tempting Meatosaurus Sandwich {lamb leg and chicken salami with cumin and yogurt in a baguette}.

This cafe, aimed specifically at fitness freaks, boasts of a menu filled with wholesome meals. They’ve got salads, a variety of eggs, parathas, burgers, wraps, tacos, pizza and bakes. All the dishes have calorie indicators.

They also have some killer meal combos, protein shakes, smoothies, detox juices and desserts.

Nutritious Nation

Nutrition Nation doesn’t eliminate carbs or fats, but uses healthier alternatives to white bread, mayo, cheese and other fattening elements found at fast food joints, without compromising on taste. We recommend you try their Chicken Cajun Club sandwich, or their Pesto Eggs.

They’ve also got a pretty great variety of juices and smoothies {the Berry Blast is a personal favourite}.

Hwealthcafe

A tiny cafe in Defence Colony, it has a lot of surprises up its sleeve. We recommend the Wholewheat Spaghetti in Arabiatta sauce or the Grilled Fish With Parsley Garlic Sauce. They even have a range of low-calorie desserts.

While here, don’t forget to have the very filling Coffee Cinnamon Hi Protein Power smoothie {you can have it without the protein also}.
