So, to maintain good health even in the rainy season, you need to pay special attention to the diet you consume. Having a balanced, healthy, and nutritious diet may keep you guarded against diseases and bring about a speedy recovery. Here are the do’s and don’ts of an ideal rainy season or monsoon oriented diet…read on:


Eat only well-cooked foods

Seafood and raw veggies and other types of foods are a strict no-no in the monsoon months. Such foods are usually full of microbes and dirt during the monsoons and may cause gastrointestinal issues. Only eat well-cooked, well-boiled, and freshly prepared food to stay safe and healthy during the monsoons.


Take an adequate amount of fluids

The monsoon season tends to be humid. Thus, you would usually perspire a lot and would lose much fluid from your body. Replenishing the lost stock of fluid is important. So, must drink lots of water, fluids, and masala chai. Even herbal concoctions made out of Tulsi, Cardamom, and Ginger can help by supplying your body with the necessary fluids and by boosting your immunity against disease-causing germs.


Green leafy veggies to be avoided

Though green leafy veggies are nutritional powerhouses in the monsoon months the leafy veggies must be avoided. The greens may go stale easily due to moisture accumulation on the leaves. Moreover, these leafy greens can make an ideal breeding ground for various microbes. So, try to avoid green leafy veggies during the monsoons.

Drink just clean water

Never drink water from the bore well and kitchens’ tap. Such water may be contaminated and may lead to issues like diarrhea, typhoid, and stomach infections.


Avoid intake of oily food

Monsoons are well associated with crispy pakoras as well as samosas…they taste heavenly in the monsoon season but having too much of these spicy, oily treats may make you feel full and bloated. Stomach problems are quite common in the rainy months as humidity lowers the pace of metabolism. This makes it difficult for your stomach to absorb the nutrients from food.


Add more spices to your food

Spices come with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Adding spices such as clove, black pepper, and turmeric to your diet is an effective remedy against infections. The symptoms of cold-flu may be reduced with the use of effective spices. These spices may act as an immunity booster too.
