Monsoon knocks with mixed feelings of a sigh of relief from the staunching summer with the beauty of nature- rain, while on the other hand the probability of infections, diseases increases, and unpredictability of the rain, muddy roads, commutation problems are the reasons for being cautious in Monsoon.
Things eating which you can boost yourself in Monsoon
During monsoon, increase your appetite for green vegetables, cereals, and fruits in this season – these will nourish your body with vitamins and proteins, in order to increase the immunity against infections. Instead of salads, steamed salads can be a better option to have. You should go for olive oil or corn oil while cooking. To increase the intake of the vital nutrients, one should have dry foods in monsoon-like chickpeas, oats, corns etc. You must include these ingredients in your food – jeera, pepper, coriander, ginger, garlic, turmeric, etc. They increase your body immunity against germs.
