With monsoon on its way, we need to be armed with the perfect blend of health and immunity to make sure we stay well during this rainy season. A number of foods are available for us to choose from, in this lovely season. The following few are the best choices one can make to keep themselves fit and fine and enjoy the rain drops on their bodies:
This super amazing food item is packed with a ton of antioxidants that make your body easily get rid of toxins that accumulate over time due to work and stressful schedule. Add it to your soups and vegetables to make digestion better.
Tea is one of the best things you have at your disposal in this season. Add some tulsi leaves to it, along with crushed ginger and you will then get the perfect drink to delight your senses and keep away petty illness that comes along this season.
Besides being a great source of protein and dietary fiber, almonds are packed with a lot of nutrients. They make you feel full and leave no space for you to snack on junk food during the day. Keep them handy and avoid hunger pangs.
This is the best vegetable you can have in your salad. It is packed with a number of vitamins and minerals and folic acid and that’s what makes beetroot one of the best ingredients for adding to juices, soups, and salads.
No matter how chilly the weather gets when it rains, a few hours later the weather turns hot and humid again. The constant dripping of sweat makes our body lose salts and at times this can lead to dehydration if not handled properly. In order to avoid this, add two tablespoons of glucose to a glass of water and sip away during the day to beat thirst and dehydration.

Not only you can make ginger tea, but also make a ginger paste and have it along with your regular meals. Add rock salt, black pepper and crush them along with ginger and have your paste to maintain your health.
Curd being an antibiotic product, it is packed with a lot of healthy bacteria that do wonders for your gut and improve digestion. It is a great snack to have but should be avoided in case of a cough and cold.
