We just experienced summers and the scorching heat that it brings along. While it is so hot, we tend to change our diet or in some cases tweak it. This makes us rely on foods that have a cooling effect on our body. But, now that the seasons have changed, it is not advised to follow the same diet and we used to. With the rains come humidity and ever-changing temperatures, so eating foods with cooling effects will create issues. The monsoons also have a reputation of viral fevers and infections, so opting for foods that have anti-bacterial properties is the best to move forward. So, here are some foods that you should definitely have during the monsoons.

 

GARLIC: 

Garlic is packed with antioxidants that boost immunity levels which help you fight the viruses that surface during the season. While garlic can be consumed in almost anything, the best way to include it is in your dal or rasam. The pungent smell and a bit of spice ensure the smooth running of the digestive system. It also increases the metabolic rate which becomes slow during the season. 

 

GINGER:

Just like garlic, ginger is also packed with anti-oxidants. It also has healing capacities that make it an effective food item to fight cold and cough. Ginger tea is the first thing that comes to mind on a gloomy day and honestly, it is the best thing ever. Just grate some fresh ginger into a mug of warm water and squeeze in a lemon. This can be your daily dose of immunity.

 

TUMERIC:

Turmeric is one of the most respected spices in India and this is not just for no reason. Turmeric has many medicinal properties and is a well-accepted immunity booster. While monsoons have a reputation for spreading diseases, turmeric can work as a best anti-biotic agent. Drinking turmeric infused milk every day can be a great way to boost your immunity.

 

ALMONDS:

Almonds are high in protein and low on fat. It can be a great way to start your day as it packed with various nutrients that are beneficial for your health. The tasty nut fights diseases, boosts digestive power and keeps your sugar levels under control. 

 

WATER: 

Last, but not least, we cannot stress how important water is for the body. With the ever-changing temperatures and rising humidity, the body starts sweating which results in loss of water. This can put you at the risk of various infections and diseases that are quite common during the monsoon. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily to help your body get rid of all the harmful toxins.
