Here are some tips to stay healthy this monsoon.

Say ‘NO’ To Street Food

During the rainy season we love to eat chaat, bhajiyas, and pakodas from the local streets, but the chances of this food being contaminated are very high, also it is unhygienic. Fried food should be avoided during monsoon.

Don’t eat pre-cut veggies and fruits

Pre-cut fruits and vegetables can easily catch bacteria and germs. Try to avoid eating pre-cut fruits and veggies. Also, vegetables like cabbage and spinach,and other leafy veggies should be cleaned and washed properly with lukewarm water before the preparation, as their leaves can contain worms.

Drink Herbal

Consume herbal tea for this monsoon to keep your immune system strong and healthy, it provides a therapeutic effect on your body. The tea should contain basil, pepper, ginger,cloves, and cinnamon which will keep your body warm.
