When you’ve got a sweet tooth that needs satisfying, you can either bake something or order in. But unless you’re a seasoned Circuit Baker, chances are you’ll end up ordering in a gazillion calories worth of confectioneries.
Well, here’s a third option – Seriously Keto combines the convenience of ordering in, with an indulgence your waistline can afford to have. If you haven’t already heard, this bakery offers low-carb, gluten-free and zero-sugar alternatives to your favourite sweet treats.
A Seriously Keto red velvet cupcake, for instance, has only 160 calories and 3g of carbs – a far cry from the usual 290 calories and 37.9g of carbs of an average cupcake! With options like (keto)cakes, bread and desserts, their menu has healthier alternatives to things you never thought could be healthy.
Price range: $5.90-$50 per item. Minimum order $5.
Delivery fee: $7.50

One common gripe people have with eating healthy is that the price tends to be on the higher side. One way to save and still eat healthy is by getting an AMGD Gold Pass that allows you to get fresh meals delivered for only $12 a meal (U.P. $17).

With the Gold Pass, you’ll get 101 healthy meals to order within nine months. Of course, if you can’t commit, there are options like the Happy Pass (50 meals), Blissful Pass (20 meals) and the Overjoyed Pass (5 meals). Note that the less meals your pass comes with, the more expensive each meal is.
Price range: $12-$17 per meal
Delivery fee: $2.50. Free for two or more meals.
