Easy Food tips to stay healthy in summers that you can learn in 2 minutes
As promised, here are quick tips on summer food that you can learn under 2 minutes. Let’s go!
It is vital to hydrate yourself. During the summers, you are likely to sweat more than any other time. So give your body a little something to drink every once in a while. If you are bored with plain water- for no apparent reason, it’s ok. We don’t judge.
You can eat your water! Yes, that’s right. Eat fruits like cucumbers, watermelons, squashes, which are up to 70% water.
Just don’t be dehydrated, it’s not fun.
Ah, the classic coffee question. Coffee can be avoided during the summers. But if you still need a caffeine kick, we have some alternatives to coffee. We believe in the brew! So here goes:
- Matcha Tea (not annoying as green tea).
- Lemon Water (good for glowing skin & weight loss).
- Apple Cider Vinegar shots in the morning. Again works very well to wake the body up. Apple has the same refreshing properties as coffee.
These have antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
Probiotics are live bacteria/yeasts that have numerous beneficial effects on the body. They help your health skyrocket. Foods like yogurts, Greek yogurts help cool you down during summers.
Increase fiber in your diet
Eat your vegetables, and do not skip fiber. Fiber is essential for your body. Summers or not, you need these to upkeep a healthy diet!
Avoid junk food.
We understand summers can make you extra lazy. You might feel tempted to order takeout and order a recipe of disaster. But do not do that. Fight the will. The carbs you intake during the summers are prominent for longer as compared to the winters. Cook healthy alternatives at home.
If you have cravings regardless, a tiny splurge once in two weeks won’t hurt. But try getting healthy meals that are fulfilling for you. Head over to our eBooks section to find out more!
Summers are exhausting as it is. The uncontrolled sweating shouldn’t slow you down from living your best life. Healthy cooking, even during the summers, is going to reward you in the future. To sum it up: follow a diet plan, stay hydrated, and follow meal preps. Also, try to make your own ingredients and marinades whenever possible.
