BROCCOLI SPINACH SOUP

Manvi Sagar
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.
