The arrival of the monsoon has always been a reason for pleasure for all. However, not many of us realize that changes in seasons have an impact on our health. Again, very few have an idea about the effect of food consumed during different seasons. Monsoon tops the list when it comes to impacting human health in terms of food habits. This is the very reason that makes it important to have a properly balanced diet during the months of monsoon.
Health issues that one might face during the month of monsoon.
Not just cough and cold, the monsoon season can also make one suffer from digestive problems. It happens because humid weather slows down the process of digestion causing gastronomical troubles. Added to this is the chance of getting affected by different types of diseases like malaria, dengue, typhoid, and many others. This makes it all the more important to keep a check on what one eats during the season.
What food to avoid during the month of monsoon?
The climatic condition of the country India is monsoon type. However, the monsoon season does not last forever. It is during June and July that avoiding certain food will help. Following are some of the foods that must be completely avoided.
First of all, make sure you avoid the consumption of all kinds of seafood as they may be the carrier of water-borne diseases during the season. Further, monsoon is the season in which prawns and fish breed making the avoidance of consumption far more crucial.
- Junks and fried foods
Nobody can enjoy the season with a bloated stomach, especially when it is bloated with unwanted gas. As humidity makes our digestive system slow, junk food may become a barrier to healthy digestion. Similarly, fried food can generate unnecessary gas in our system making it a reason to avoid them. Along with this spicy and dry foods must also be avoided.
- Certain vegetables
Leafy green vegetables often serve as the platform for the growth of bacteria and fungi making them harmful to our bodies. This is truer as the monsoon serves as the best time for their growth with its moist temperature and humid ambience. In case the consumption is necessary one must make sure that the vegetables are properly washed in lukewarm water before cooking.
How to replace junk food during the monsoon?
The focus must be on building a good and resistive immune system to fight infections and diseases. Our immune system craves nutrients, probiotics, and antioxidants to strengthen itself. Thus, by making one’s diet rich in fruits like apples, litchi, plums, cherries, and nuts like almonds, walnuts, and cashews one might make themselves monsoon ready.
However, fruits like watermelon and muskmelon must be excluded as they can become carriers of water-borne diseases. Again, to keep yourself hydrated and resistant to infection, a combination of gourds can also be added to one’s diet. With all these included a perfect diet during monsoon lets you cherish the glittering leaves and flowers of nature.
Food has a direct impact on a person’s health and so its consumption must be well regulated according to seasons to avoid any health troubles. Food in monsoon therefore must not be consumed without paying attention to its impact on our life in general and health in particular.Below Is Native Ad test END OF NATIVE AD TEST(updated)
