Feeling Peckish? Gotta have Peqish!

With the second week of Jan already in, deadlines are looming in again, so are the meetings and schedules. Keeping up with the resolutions is already looking like a task for some.

In the midst of all these, are you finding time for yourself? Trying to, you would say.

Finding a little me-time starts with enjoying a healthy meal for breakfast. Then, away from all the office craziness, a delicious yet healthy meal can help fuel you for the rest of the day. Happy and energetic you will be different from the hangry and grumpy you!

Now, you would say that healthy, delicious and affordable options are far and few in the city. And these options for breakfast and lunch hardly exist. That’s exactly what Team Daily thought until we came across Peqish.

Yes, Peqish.

The Peqish Food Co. was established on the principle that healthy, delicious, freshly-made quality food should be affordable, convenient and accessible in a grab-and-go format for those on the run.

The name itself is a play on the work “peckish,” a common British term for feeling hungry. Peqish’s perspective on food, particularly the obsession with “eating right,” is likely borne out of the scientific backgrounds of the founders. Based on their experiences in the life sciences industry, they saw first-hand the deleterious effects of a poor diet on one’s health. Despite the overwhelming amount of literature, the incidence of diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and autoimmunity continues to rise. As such, they were compelled not only to increase the community’s awareness of how we nourish ourselves but also to make nutritious and delicious food accessible and affordable.

Their tagline, “Eat.Right.Now” correctly sums up the essence of Peqish.

Before you begin to wonder what should you try out first from their menu, we have an answer for you. Their best-selling Festive Chicken Crancherry Lunchbox Classiq sandwich is to die for. Proceed with caution as this sandwich is addictive!

This super delicious sandwich is made up of housemade roasted chicken, greens, and the secret aioli recipe. Wait, there’s more to the best seller. The taste is then perfectly balanced with a touch of sweetness from their made-from-scratch crancherry compote. A bite into this heaven of a sandwich and you will know why it is a favorite.

Chicken Crancherry is a crowd pleaser but we wanted to know what do the minds (or more like the hands) behind Peqish like to munch on. So, we got in touch with Kenneth who is one of the founders at Peqish.
Kenneth says, “My personal favorite is our PQ Cobb Salad Box.”
On asking what makes this Cobb salad unique, he said, “it’s your classic Cobb salad using fresh, high-quality ingredients, but with a twist in the dressing we use: our housemade chipotle ranch dressing. It’s the perfect amount at lunch, but leaves just enough room for an afternoon treat.” He further added, “speaking of an afternoon treat, my other favorite at the moment is our Blueberry Cheesecake Loaf!”

Did you hear cheesecake? Yes! Cheesecake loaf!

Alright, looks like now you know what to have for breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack tomorrow.
(Yeah, we like to think about food all the time. Meal planning is life planning for us!)

While discussing food, we went on to talk about how Peqish has shaped up as a healthy favorite for everyone in no time. Like a proud parent, Kenneth said that starting the business itself was a big milestone for him. He said, “It was a sprint from reviewing interior design drawings through to construction and of course our opening last year. It’s been an exciting year, but we have even bigger plans for 2016.”

2016 surely looks like a great year for Peqish. They just launched a series of new products, including a kale caesar salad line, a hot chili line and a number of tasty loaves. On the expansion front, they have a number of new partnerships in the works, so expect to find Peqish products in even more locations.

But hey, when in doubt, Peqish and Team Daily will bring Peqish goodness directly to your door!

So, don’t be peckish anymore, head to Peqish and enjoy! 🙂
