With our bodies more vulnerable to diseases and infections during the rainy season, we should take extra care of our eating habits during this time. Here are some quick tips to help you decide what to eat and what to avoid.
Foods to avoid
You probably love seafood more than anything else, especially the fish and the prawns. Rainy season is the time of the year when these living things breed. You will not find fresh seafood this time of the year. Switching to poultry in the rainy season is a better option for your health.
- Fried food
All the fried food that brings water in your mouth should be avoided. Impossible? Minimize it to the maximum limit then. In the rainy season, the digestive process of the body is slowed down. Unless you want to upset your stomach and cause it to bloat and give you more complications, avoid fried food. Imagine, what fried processed food will do to your digestive system?
The fizz drinks aren’t healthy in any season. What do they give us, sugar? More technically, they can minimize the enzymes in the body by causing the minerals to wash away. Drink purified water instead, bacteria develops quickly in water, so if you have a sensitive digestive system boil the filtered water too before drinking. Adding lime to water is a better and a healthy option than having sodas.
- Leafy vegetables
Yes, doctors and dieticians advise us to consume green leafy vegetables. They never say consume them all around the year. It is true that these are rich in nutrients, but in the rainy season, these become more prone to germs and may have worms and larvae.
- Healthy eating tips
Impure water as we mentioned is the biggest reason for diseases in the rainy season. Again, be sure about the purity of the water that you consume. Wash all the fruits and vegetables thoroughly. You can add 30 ml of vinegar to ½ liter of water and soak the fruits and veggies in the solution for about 10 minutes. After that wash them with clean water, the process will kill 99% of the bacteria. Drinking warm beverages like green tea or tea with ginger and a dash of mint will be beneficial.
Stay healthy in the rainy season with these tips, which are easy to follow and will rather save you some money on the foods that you will avoid.
