The founder of Pure Juice and Smoothies, in 2015 ManviSagar started vegan health drinks, but then slowly expanded the menu to include soups, salads, and healthy cooked meals – both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Looking at the brighter side, she feels this lockdown has made everybody a lot more health-conscious. Building immunity is not a one day or one-week affair – there is no magic to it. Including a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables in our daily life has always been important. Manvi believes that the best part about a healthy meal is how easily it can be prepared, without taking a lot of your time. Here are two recipes that will help you stay healthy while treating your taste buds.
