‘Eat seasonal’ is the advice that a lot of us have received from our elders at home. Many doctors and nutritionists also tell us to stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season for a particular time. Seasonal fruits and veggies are said to have a whole range of nutrients that can help equip the body to stay healthy during the season. Celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar is among the foremost and staunch advocates of consumption of local and seasonal food in India. Diwekar has an impressive list of clientele including Bollywood divas Kareena and Karisma Kapoor, as well as Varun Dhawan, among others. Diwekar reminded us of a delightful seasonal fruit- custard apple or shareefa- recently through her post on Instagram.
Posting a picture of a basket full of custard apple fruit, Rujuta Diwekar pointed at the various benefits of the fruit, which has a hard, green, scaly shell for cover. Diwekar reminded her Instagram followers that the fruit is in season right now and therefore, it is the right time to stock up on it.
