Mango:  According to celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, this juicy seasonal delicacy and king of fruits rides the summer-monsoon waves. Rich in Vitamin A and C, apart from just being great in taste, soaking mangoes in water for approximately 20 to half-hour make them a fast and effective cleanser of the whole system. In her own words Diwekar says “to appear as if a queen you’ll got to keep good company of this king of fruits.”

Cashew Apple: “Five times richer in vitamin C than an orange”, says nutritionist Diwekar in her latest audiobook. Cashew Apple may be a summer conical fruit that creates for the “perfect tangy drink with just one bite”. Rujuta also states that being rich in carbohydrates, this fruit has excellent antitumour and antimicrobial properties – that’s exactly why even the worldwide food giants have an interest in it.

Gajar Halwa: Loved by everyone, this staple dessert usually finds itself centrestage in every celebration thanks to its gooey goodness. Overloaded with flavours, Gajar halwa isn’t really considered good for one’s health. But Nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar busts this common myth around this seasonal delicacy and states, “Gajar halwa, that’s cooked amorously , warmth and joy in your kitchen are often and actually , always is 100 times healthier than cereals”.
