Organic Food Options In Mumbai
It’s easy enough to stick to eating nothing but organic food – as long as it is you who are picking out the ingredients you buy and cook with. But in today’s day and age, that is a rare luxury. More often than not, we turn to outside sources for food, especially when it comes to our daily lunch in our place of work.
There are many tiffin or dabba services in Mumbai, and just as many restaurants. Yet, despite the embarrassment of riches we have in terms of places to eat, the choices of places that serve of deliver organic food is far smaller in comparison.
To help out those of you looking for a suitable place to lunch, we offer you a starter list of places suitable for people who wish to eat organic food.
1. ORGANIC TIFFIN SERVICES
This tiffin service’s name is enough indication of the kind of fare they offer – organic all the way!

This is also an ideal service for vegans to order from, as they serve vegan versions of their meals on request. Furthermore, in order to make sure you get as much nutrition as possible, they offer brown rice as a replacement to regular rice on request.
With a wide variety of meal plans, designed to fit everyone’s budget, this is a great place to order from if you’d rather not go out!

Pricing here is dependant on the dishes. Their most popular food item is their Raw Pizza, which has a gluten-free base made of vegetables and seeds, topped with Vegan Pesto and fresh organic veggies.
