Leafy greens: Spinach, cabbage and arugula, are rich sources of Vitamin B and pack a punch. One serving of leafy greens is loaded with fibre, calcium and almost the entire day’s recommended dose of beta carotene which is vital for immune system health.

While buying arugula leaves or rocket leaves, look for young crispy green leaves. Avoid flowered harvest, as its leaves are tough and bitter in taste.
