Wellcure Tips:

  • Avocados that are just-ripe work the best.
  • The filling rajma (beans) make this a wholesome dish for evening dinner.

Eating guide:

  • Food group: Vegetables and legumes
  • Veggies, are loaded with enzymes and high water content. They aid in digestion and act as daily dose of vitamins and minerals.
  • Rajma is your legume category. This is whole foods and great addition for much needed protein and fiber.
