2 The Right Bite
If you’re among those who grab a sandwich and coffee at the nearest café for lunch, there’s a new food service in Ahmedabad—Velvety Food—that can help you start eating healthy. For now, they have nutritional fruit and salad boxes that can be delivered to your doorstep. If you stick to the basic watermelon, apple and papaya, they have the Basic Fruit Box; add a few more like kiwi and black current and you get the Exotic Fruit Box. The chana, corn and sprout bowl is a good choice for those looking for a nutritious meal with protein and fibre. They also have an option of customising your fruit box.
