Red peppers boost metabolism. They are rich in Vitamin C and help to fight sweet cravings.
Green tea is known for its anti-oxidants. It can be safely taken 3-4 times a day. It flushes excess fluids and reduces bloating and water retention. It increases metabolism and helps fat burning. Highly recommended by doctors and nutritionists!
Did you know that Tomato is a fruit and we use it in our tadka’s for all veggies 😀 ? Tomatoes are full of antioxidants and reduce water retention in body.
Many of us hate Garlic’s smell 😛 . Garlic is rich in anti-oxidants and allicin. Allicin helps to kill many harmful bacteria and viruses in our body. This is one reason why Indian curries do contain garlic.
Cucumber has similar slimming properties. It eases water retention and bloating in the body.
