How I started making my own salad without much effort!

Evening 4-5 is when I start craving to eat something.Usually I end up having some bakery or some other unhealthy food. Since these are easily available compared to something healthy like a salad. Healthy options are usually far from one's reach. Asking amma to make salad also along with breakfast, lunch box was too much.

Yesterday a text message from BigBasket triggered a thought in my mind & I wanted to try it out.

So I went ahead and ordered some sliced cucumbers, sprouts, green and red cabbage, some diced carrots. Bill including delivery charges came to ~80bucks (I chose minimum quantity of 200gm each and it can serve 5 days for me). I selected the early morning slot for delivery hoping to make and take salad to office. Delivery happened at around 8 & while my mom was busy preparing breakfast, I just mixed all veggies, sprout and added some salt, chilly powder, lemon to make my own salad :-)

Now I can be healthy without giving excuses, thanks to BigBasket for making this happen. Head over to "Cut Vegetables" section on BigBasket.

Very interesting move by an Indian bank to integrate banking with social. Wonder how it will be taken by youth whom the bank is targeting. Personally I like the design of the Debit Card so much that I want to get an account! Kotak jifi (Affiliate link)
