  • Gorge on the veggies: Needless to say, leafy greens possess immense benefits for your body. Vegetables like broccoli, beans, sprouts, spinach, kale are the key to a disease-free life. Dark green veggies contain vitamins, minerals and fibre. They reduce the risk of obesity, cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
