  • Diet and Nutrition experts, doctors, mothers, grandmothers and ‘pados wali aunty’ – they all have one great advice for us – beta eat fruits as much as you can and as many as you can. While it’s good to consume lots of fruit because its high fiber content and other nutritional value keeps body hydrated, light and energized. But its simple foolishness to buy non seasonal fruits especially when your pocket does not allows. Think it for yourself, would you take a ‘fruit loan’ to buy out of -season avocados, kiwis, or pomegranate? Why not just buy what is fresh, easily available and fits well in budget?

Just get a `5 plain milk chocolate, place it between bread slices and put it on your grill pan on light heat. It will taste much better than your expensive spread! Or you can always opt for muesli for better breakfast options which otherwise include fruit smoothies and shakes and cornflakes mix. Or you can opt for organic tea instead for imported tea box worth couple of hundred bucks.
