For those who are trying to control what they eat but are forced to give in to that 4pm hunger, life is tough. Office canteens don't serve anything that doesn't have greasy and fried written all over it. Get out on the streets and you're tempted by masala dosa, sandwich and vada pav. In short, diet aur weight loss ki band baj jati hai. The alternative could be carrying your own homemade healthy snack but honestly, who goes through that much trouble unless pregnant or seriously unwell.
A few weeks ago I heard about this new website which makes healthy snacks and delivers it to you. Snackosaur is a Bangalore based startup and is currently delivering in Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi. A team of chefs makes the snacks with taste and health as priority. You can pick from two assorted boxes of sweet and savoury items: Regular Box and Trial Box. You can also make your own box or order the snacks individually. The delivery is free for orders of Rs 299 and above.
I tried the Trial Box (Rs 299) which had small packets of five snacks. My favourite was the Strawberry Wasabi Peas (Rs 120 for 150 gms) with a nice hit which is followed by sweet flavour. The Dried-Fruit Mix (Rs 50 for 50 gms) – dried papaya, pineapple and mango – is ideal for sweet cravings. Use them as toppings and make your oats interesting. The Almond Prune Oat Granola Bar (Rs 90 for 70 gms) is ideal filling and loaded with oats, nuts, prunes and flax seeds and is rich in dietary fibre. The BBQ Roasted Edamame (Rs 160 for 150 gms) is one of the most interesting snacks - salted, crisp and full of flavour.
The products might come across as little expensive but if they save even 50 per cent of my medical bills, they are completely worth it.
