Foods You Must Eat To Stay Healthy In Monsoon!

By Dr. Nikita Toshi +2 more

The monsoon season is a welcome change after four long months of scorching summer heat. However, while monsoon offers respite from the heat, it comes with its share of health risks. This is because of the weather changes (temperature and humidity) that spread of some diseases is facilitated significantly during this season. Consequently, infections, digestive problems and allergies are seen to be more common. But there is always a way to enjoy most of this season by following a few precautions and a healthy diet.

Foods You Must Eat To Stay Healthy In Monsoon! - PharmEasy

So if you want to enjoy the rains while staying fit and healthy, include these foods in your diet:

1. Soup –

Instead of munching on unhealthy roadside chaats, try a bowl of steamy hot soup if you are hungry. Filling and packed with nutrients, soups are easy to digest and will keep your tummy happy. A bowl of chicken soup or vegetable corn soup garnished with black pepper, garlic and ginger keeps you hydrated through the day. 

2. Jamun, Plum –

Fruits like Jamun and Plums should be a part of your daily diet. Jamun has a sweet but slightly acidic flavour – juice made of Jamun also contains bioactive phytochemicals, which reduce the risk of liver diseases. On the other hand, tangy and sweet plums are filled with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. 

3. Sprouts –

Sprouts are good for your health in all seasons, particularly in the monsoon. Not only do protein-rich sprouts make for a healthy breakfast or snack, but they also boost your immune system, thus helping your body to fight germs. 

4. Herbal tea with Honey –

Herbal tea, such as tulsi tea and ginger tea are your best friends during the monsoon season. Drinking herbal tea will keep you warm and safe from cold and flu while boosting your immunity. Add a few drops of honey – known for its anti-bacterial properties – instead of sugar.

5. Turmeric Milk –

A common kitchen ingredient, turmeric is a miracle herb that should be consumed in any form during every season. Rich in anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric improves your immune system and keeps infections at bay. Drink a glass of warm turmeric milk every night before hitting the bed to stay fit during the monsoon. 

6. Probiotics

You should include more probiotics and fermented food in your diet during monsoon. Yoghurt, buttermilk, and pickled veggies can make sure that your gut is healthy and happy. Probiotics are good bacteria and they live in our gut or intestinal tract. They help fight off disease-causing germs as well as bad bacteria from thriving in our bodies.

7. Lemon

Lemon is a great source of vitamin C and strengthens our immunity. Monsoons are the time when we are more prone to catching diseases. Vitamin C helps fight infections, ease digestion, and care for bone health. Full of bioactive compounds and flavonoids, lemon pulp or zest is an incredible addition to your monsoon diet. Having lemon juice or squeezing some on your food or salads is a good way to amp up your nutrition and immunity.

8. Dry fruits and nuts

Munching on dates, almonds, walnuts and cashews is a good idea in every season. These nuts are rich in vitamins and minerals and are great additions to your monsoon diet. Rich in riboflavin, and niacin, these food items help to strengthen your immunity. They are powerful antioxidants and keep your cells healthy. Say no to junk this monsoon and binge on some nutritious nuts, dry fruits and seeds.

During monsoons, you crave ginger tea more than often. It is scientifically proven that ginger might reduce inflammation and infections due to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activities.

Healthy lifestyle tips for monsoon –

Besides healthy eating, a few health tips such as the following can lower your chances of being affected by a host of illnesses:

  • Keep your house and surroundings clean.
  • Wash your hands with a hand wash before and after having a meal.
  • Always carry a hand sanitiser along when you step out.
  • Always wash the vegetables and fruits with clean, purified water before cooking or consuming them raw.
  • Last but not the least, take care of your gut. Monsoon can take a toll on your digestive system and we may experience frequent acidity, gas, bloating, etc. Some infections can also affect your liver. You should avoid fried foods and heavy, fatty dishes during this season. If you have developed a stomach infection, consult your doctor immediately.

Garlic has shown multiple effects like anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and antioxidant. These medicinal actions of garlic might be beneficial in tackling cough, cold, and flu-like conditions, especially in children.
