10 simple steps to a healthy summer diet


Apr 05, 2017 | 0 Views


 Water is the key ingredient to keep the body cool. With high humidity level, sweat will not evaporate quickly. This prevents the body from releasing heat in an efficient manner. That is why it is necessary to hydrate and drink water, even when you are not thirsty. Increase water intake regardless of your activity levels.

 

      

·         Reduce intake of heaty vegetables and fruits, like spinach, radish, hot peppers, onions, garlic, beetroot, pineapple, grapefruit and ripe mangoes (if you cannot resist mangoes, soak them overnight in water).

 

   

 

·         Watermelon's high water content keeps you cool and hydrated. That same high water content will also keep you feeling full, which could curb cravings. Watermelon also contains lycopene, which protects skin cells from sun damage.

 

         

 

·         Green tea is the perfect way to supplement your water intake when it's super-hot outside. Studies have suggested that green tea may be helpful in fighting cancer and heart disease, lowering cholesterol, revving your metabolism and even keeping dementia at bay. And if sipping a hot drink in a hot month isn't your cup of...well, tea, try it on ice—the cooler temp doesn't compromise its nutritional benefits.

   

 

·         Sweet, juicy berries are filled with flavonoids, powerful disease fighters found in many fruits and vegetables. Among their other pros, they increase blood flow in skin and decrease sensitivity to light, which improves skin's appearance, structure and texture.

    

·         An inexpensive coconut is full of health benefits and has wonderful cooling properties. It is laden with simple sugar, electrolytes and essential minerals which help keep the body well hydrated. In addition, there is evidence to suggest that coconut water has cancer fighting and anti-ageing properties as well.

   

·         Protein-packed, portion-controlled and easy to tote in your beach bag (just freeze a cup before you go, so it stays cool until you're ready to snack), yogurt is made for summer eating. The protein satisfies your growling tummy, which will keep you from overloading on salty, high-calorie snacks at your barbeque. Yogurt also adds a dose of probiotics, beneficial bacteria that keeps your digestive system running smoothly.

    

·         Mint is a simple, easily available, inexpensive herb which you can add to your curd to make pudina raita or have it in the form of chutney besides using it in dips. The best thing about it is that you can grow it in a small pot at home for your use. Though it does not help bring down the body temperature, we love it because of the delicious and refreshing taste.

                 

·         Onions have amazing cooling properties. You can add it to your curries, dips, raitas, salads and chutneys to help keep you cool. The red onions, in particular, are very rich in quercetin, which is a natural anti-allergen. Having lots of onions can provide you protection against sunstroke.

       

·         This crunchy vegetable costs little, has lots of fibre that can help keep constipation at bay. It can make each of your bites crunchier and help you stay cool as a cucumber!
