Healthy Meal Idea Outside Parks
After a morning jog, Now the eyes search for a small snacks or a drink to satiate your morning cravings, but the thought of regaining the lost calories makes you shudder and you quietly walk back home for a bowl of cornflakes? Look around, you may find a solution to your problem. No, skip the stalls of choley-bhatura, kulchas, besan chilla, right in the morning. Focus on the coconut water vendor, the sprouts seller and the person selling Bael fruit (wood apple) sherbat.

They have the ability to improve the digestive system, improve metabolism, prevent anaemia, help in weight loss, reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, protect against cancer, improve skin and vision, and boost the immune system.
