Bharati Hegde, who plays the role of Chitra on Yaare Nee Mohini, is a person who believes in keeping herself fit. She follows Yoga and good food habits to ensure her health is taken care of. If you are a fan of Bharati, it is time to take care of your physical and mental well-being too.
The biggest concern about eating healthy is the notion that it might burn a hole in your pocket. Many of you might think that it will cost more. But that is not entirely true. Take Bharati for example, her favourite snacks are corn-based and corn is not expensive.
While many health dishes require expensive ingredients, these quick recipes don’t require more than five items. Take a look.
