Everytime I make sweet at home, I feel sorry as my husband cannot have it due to diabetics. Hence today, I decided to make the thiranga halva for him and people like him can enjoy freedom from sugar.

Palak: Vitamin A and C plus fiber, folic acid and 13 different flavonoids found in spinach are very beneficial in fighting against cancer cells. A study shown that these properties in spinach lower the cancer risk by 34%, particularly in breast cancer, cervical cancer, prostate cancer, skin cancer and stomach cancer

Cucumber: Cucumber helps in keeping the body hydrated and regulating body temperature. It also helps in flushing out the toxins from the body. It has  high water content, vitamins A, B & C.

Carrot: Forget about vitamin A pills. With this orange crunchy powerfood, you get vitamin A and a host of other powerful health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging.
