Eat Well, Stay Well: 5 Foods to Avoid This Rainy Season

While the rainy season brings charm, it's also a time when bacteria flourish. Here are 5 foods to avoid this monsoon season:

Street Food

We all love hot pakoras and chaats during the rain. However, the increased humidity & the possibility of unclean water can lead to contamination and stomach infections.

Leafy Greens

Leafy vegetables are a great source of vitamins & minerals, but during the monsoons, they are prone to harbouring germs & parasites. Opt for root vegetables instead.

Pre-cut Fruits and Salads

Although tempting, during the monsoon, Pre-cut food can become breeding grounds for bacteria. Wash thoroughly and chop salads at home before consumption.

Stale or Leftover Food

The weather can slow down digestion during the monsoon season. Avoid consuming leftover food, especially reheated multiple times, to prevent stomach upsets.

Fried Foods

Fried foods are heavy & greasy, putting a strain on your digestion, which can already be sluggish due to the monsoon. Opt for grilled, baked, or steamed foods instead.
