Ordering Online Vs Dine In

There was a time when a hearty home cooked meal was the only thing that satisfied us. Only time we got to eat out was at social gatherings and events like weddings (well, I still love the amazing free food at the weddings). Then came the era of dinning out which we still associate with romantic dates and in my case blind dates. Laugh all you may but its true that you can barely go out on a blind date anymore as now we all prefer to date Netflix rather than another human being.er_diningroom We prefer spending weekends ordering in rather than going out and in this post I am going to explain why in just 6 points  :-

  1. Cooking these days is an art and not a thing everyone knows how to do. After a long day at work people prefer to sit back on their recliners and enjoy their meals in front of their smart TVs
  2. Ordering in save time. Time taken to go to a restaurant and waiting time in the restaurant is a deal breaker for today’s impatient souls.
  3. Eating out alone can get lonely or it attracts unnecessary attention for men. For once all I want to do is eat my meal in peace and not entertain some random guy in his mid life crisis.
  4. If I go to a Mexican restaurant and ask them to serve me some nachos with mayonnaise instead of salsa, they would look at me like I am some primitive being who has no idea of how to eat. But at home I can eat what I want the way I want to eat it. We all have weird eating habits and would love to indulge in them without anyone judging us
  5. More options! I can order five different things from five different restaurants and enjoy them all at once. This is literally impossible while dinning out unless of course you were successful in cloning yourself five times
  6. There are so many discount and cashback offers available on online ordering websites. Its always cheaper to order in than dinning out and I love the idea of saving some money just to buy an extra dessert 😉Online-Ordering-System-Definition.jpgo7wnaxzimfjxrp-640m

By now, I am sure I have been able to convince you that ordering in is definitely preferred by a millennial like me. But at the same time if you want to impress your friends on social media, you have get up, put on your best dress and go to a fancy restaurant to click eye catching pictures of beautifully plated food.

Eat Any Time Snack Bars

Hey guys,

Howz it going? On several occasion I have suffered the embarrassment of a loud growling stomach in public. I am that kind of person who starts feeling hungry just after one hour of a huge meal. So, Eat Any Time just sent over some of their snack bars. Here is my review…

About Eat Any Time:-

The main idea behind the snack bars was to create something healthy as well as delicious to satisfy the hunger pangs in between meals. They realized that our snacking choices were very unhealthy (mostly deep-fried stuff) and they wanted to create some healthy –wholesome choices.

Their Story- (from their website)

“E.A.T. Bars Are Made From 100% Natural Ingredients. Each Bar Is Carefully Prepared Using Ingredients Which Offer A Blend Of Scrumptious Taste And Wholesome Nutrition.

They say experience is the best teacher and that is how we started with E.A.T.
Life, as we know it, is not easy but at the same time it is busy. Out in the big world trying to make our mark, fulfill our dreams we work hard and struggle every day. Me and my friend were two such people toiling day and night, often forgetting to eat on time, skipping our meals and bingeing on the junk. Before we realised we were sustaining ourselves on the junk food easily found at the stretch of the hand in every nook and corner of Mumbai.

Soon we began to feel the ill-effects of all the junk we lived on. We were fatigued, irksome, sluggish and unable to focus on things important to us. That is when my wife, who is nutritionist took matters in her hands. She made these wonderful nutrition bars from oats and other natural ingredients and wonder seeds. I started carrying it around with me, they were delightful and yummy and most importantly full of flavor they became our (me and my friend) savior and most importantly kept us healthy and wise.
We received a gift of health in that little power packed bar. A treasure we decided to share it with all. Thus evolved Eat Any Time (E.A.T.) BARS, so that health was available for all, at all times to simply by E.A.Ting!”

The Bars I received:-

I received a box of 4 snack bars, of different flavors. The packaging was nice and attractive. The bars had their ingredients and nutrition chart printed on them. Each bar is for Rs 50/-

MANGO GINGER:-

TANGY ORANGE:-

My Opinion:-

E.A.T bars provide a healthy alternative to our wrong and unhealthy eating habits.

These bars are easy to carry in bag. TANGY ORANGE is my favourite flavour 🙂 Bambaiya chaat was mu not so favourite. I loved snacking on these bars while reading a book a sipping tea. They are also perfect to carry around in your purse. They are easily available on Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal and other shopping websites.

So, hope I was able to help you find a good snack. Follow me on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM. Write to me at barkha.vyas06@gmail.com
