Good nutrition has always been a paramount factor in maintaining your health. In this era where everyone’s grinding themselves to be on the top of the corporate ladder, they might forget to pay heed to their physical health. Physical and mental health goes hand in hand. So, keeping this in mind, I, Swapnil Choudhary, an MBA in Marketing and a health enthusiast, gave it thought to bring physical health into focus and create a difference in how people eat.
Our body turns into what we consume! From ancient times our grandparents have put a lot of concern towards eating right. What to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat is always a dilemma among individuals. To resolve this issue, I at Mealslab dug deeper into the health and diet habits individuals should follow to bestow themselves a sound body and soul.
You might have a bunch of questions in your mind about Mealslab, so here I am, sharing about my startup.
Do read the whole blog to know everything about us! Let’s get going!
1. What is your business all about?
Mealslab™ is Indore’s first and only nutritionally balanced, perfectly portioned, healthy meal delivery service. We provide a wide variety of freshly cooked healthy meals to individuals across Indore. Our team of experienced chefs and dietitians work together to ensure that your meal is not just healthy but also tasty and varied. The meals are individually packed in hygienic, contamination-proof packages with nutritional content printed on each package. You can opt for various meal boxes as per your diet requirement.
2. How did you start your journey?
Mealslab started its journey with a small setup in the year 2019 and grew each year with dedication, hard work, and by being consistent and remaining true to ourselves. Those are the same values we use to help our customers reach their fitness goals. An entrepreneurial journey is always full of highs and lows! We did face roadblocks like everyone else. As the pandemic hit the world at a deadly pace, it affected our business too. But as no storm lasts forever, we restarted our business with full enthusiasm in January 2022.
3. What is your motivation?
Motivation comes from within. Be it – having an exhilarating workout session or having a balanced diet. We at Mealslab strive to work hard to make this world a healthier place with our balanced meals loaded with essential elements like proteins, vitamins, fibers, and other indispensable constituents. Healthy food choices are crucial for a healthy lifestyle. We understand this and try to deliver a wholesome meal with our offerings.
4. What inspired you to do this?
The idea behind establishing a platform like Mealslab caters to a healthy and balanced diet the masses triggered in Dec 2014. My father was diagnosed with bile duct cancer and underwent Whipple surgery. To fight such a painful procedure, one needs to be very cautious in having a diet rich in essential nutrients which help the body to recover.
At that time, there was a dearth of a platform that provided a healthy diet suitable for the patients. That day marked the inception of Mealslab. I decided that no patient should be devoid of getting a healthy diet. Hence, I started working towards my dream of building a multi-cuisine customized meal delivery kitchen with customized meals designed to fight diseases such as diabetes, renal/kidney disease, cancer, celiac disease, and others.
5. How many years of experience do you hold?
We kicked off implementing our dream in 2019 and got a great response from the users but got badly hit by the pandemic, which shattered our startup just like others. But in January 2022, we recollected ourselves and commenced our operations in full swing holding the title of the “only kitchen in central India to offer healthy meals to cancer patients.”
6. What is your aim/mission?
Our mission towards establishing Mealslab is quite clear. We aim to help people choose healthy food habits over junk and unhealthy ones. It can help reduce their risk of chronic diseases and improve their overall health in the long run, which is a prerequisite to fighting any deadly disease.
7. What are your future plans?
Expanding my horizon, I am working as a cancer coach to help patients sail through their cancer journey by counseling and educating them on the dos and don’ts if they’re suffering from the same. I also focus on delivering health in other cities in the coming years and initiate healthy meal delivery for every disease through my esteemed efforts.
8. What is something you want us to highlight?
You might have a misconception as some diseases are treated only with medicines. But as a matter of fact, a healthy diet sure plays a vital role in fighting those diseases as it maintains immunity. These diseases are treated by consuming the correct diet and healthy practices. We are such a platform that helps people in their recovery and healing process with our customized diet plans.
