5 Foods You Must Have to Keep Cool During Summer

Many people complain of health issues during the summer. These are mainly caused due to your body’s temperature rising and dehydration. Hence, it is important to keep your body cool to stay healthy during summer.

Following are five foods that will ensure you are cool for the summer:

– Melons
Watermelons and muskmelons have high water content and a significant amount of antioxidants. Both these help keep your body refreshed even while you sweat in the heat.

– Yogurt
Yogurt is a wonderful natural coolant. You can have it in various forms –drink a tall glass of lassi, eat a bowl of raita or plain curd with your meals or follow the latest food trends and whip up some frozen yoghurt loaded with the goodness of fruits at home. You could also make you salads cooler by adding a yogurt dressing instead of a mayonnaise based one.

– Lime juice
This summer, choose a refreshing glass of lime water that comes with tons of nutrients over packaged juices or aerated drinks that can actually be harmful for your health. Packed with Vitamin C, lime water detoxifies your system and keeps it cool even in this intense heat. You can also add some extra flavor to your tangy drink by adding a dash of salt, honey or even spices to it.

– Coconut Water
Add coconut water to your diet in the summer to reap various benefits from this simple and easily available food item. Not only is coconut water high in copper, potassium, magnesium, antioxidants and other required nutrients, but it also contains electrolytes and natural sugars that keep your body hydrated and help maintain its temperature.

– Cucumber
This vegetable has high fiber and water content, both of which help in cooling down your body in the summer heat since the two aid in keeping the toxins out of your body. Just munch on it during the day or add it to dips or salads.

Include these five foods in your diet this summer to keep cool. Combine them with precautions such as staying indoors as much as possible, drinking enough water and not exerting yourself, and you should be safe this summer.
