Food To Avoid This Monsoon
Monsoon is a season with very high levels of humidity and precipitation. Intake of street food is very much popular amongst all age groups as it is inexpensive and easily available. They may satisfy your taste buds but can also harm your health in many other ways! Here are a few things one should avoid during this season!
1) AVOID SEA FOOD
Monsoon is the breeding season for fish. Since most of the fish contain eggs inside them which are not healthy for humans when consumed directly, it is better to avoid them. Also to maintain freshness, preservatives are sprayed onto them with various harmful components! So avoid sea food.
2) AVOID LEAFY VEGETABLES
Since childhood, all have been taught the importance of eating leafy vegetables. However, in the monsoon, they are best avoided. The smut present in them catches insects and germs. Strictly say No to veggies like cabbage and cauliflower whereas go for Bitter gourd and other healthy vegetables.
3) NO FRIED FOOD
There are strong evidence supporting avoidance of fried food during this very humid season. The major reason is the slow down of the digestion process and occurrence of gastronomical complications in this highly muggy season. It’s hard yet avoiding them shall keep you healthy!
4) NO FIZZY DRINKS AND LESS DAIRY PRODUCTS
As already mentioned, this season renders the digestive system. It is recommended to consume minimum dairy products and fizzy drinks too as they result in reduction of enzyme activity. Instead, go for clean water, Nimbu Paani and Shikanji!
5) STREET FOOD
Monsoons season is the one where one can see species of insects and mosquitoes. Since street food stalls are mostly open, one might be prone to water borne diseases such as diarrhea, food poisoning etc due to breading of insects in the nearby area. Avoid street food, especially the open ones!
