Manushi Chhillar explained in the video how health and nutrition are two causes she has always been passionate about. "Proper nutrition has manifold health benefits. I intend to tell as many people as possible, about the positives one can unlock by eating right. So let's get to it," wrote Manushi Chhillar in the caption of her post.
She further revealed how she began cooking in her college days to get proper nutrition from the food that was cooked in her hostel. This was thanks to her upbringing in a family of doctors which made her very health-conscious since childhood. "My parents are doctors and they have always told me that our eating habits and the food we eat defines our total health. With this learning, I have been able to lead a very balanced life because awareness about nutrition is key for anyone to understand whether they are planning their meals correctly," said the 23-year-old actor-model.
