Food Prevention during monsoon

Here are some food hygiene precautions and diet modifications for the monsoon season:

Avoid heavy salty food as it promotes water retention and bloating. It is better to have medium or low salt food.

Eat foods which are drying in nature, the most popular being makka (corn), chana (chickpea), besan (gram flour), jow (oats). Eating watery foods like rice, lassi, watermelon, muskmelon creates swelling in the body.

Maintain the general hygiene while eating out and definitely avoid roadside vendors as very few people have the high immunity to handle the bacterial overload at such places.

The milk is the better diet in this season. Drink butter milk as it improve digestion. Oily food should be taken in less quantity.

Eat light foods like vegetables, fruits, cereals etc and avoid too much of meat or fish. One can also enjoy grilled, tandoori foods which need minimum oil/butter.

Avoid foods which are very sour like tamarind (imli), chutneys and pickles as they promote water retention.

Consume a lot of bitter vegetables like karela (bitter gourd) and bitter herbs like neem , methi (fenugreek) seeds, haldi (turmeric) as it prevents infection. more

amongst other things.... make sure your source of water is clean, thats probably the most common cause of gastroenteritis, a disease that increases in monsoons..... more  
Besan is definately good in all seasons as it is protein rich. About lassi/yoghurt I am talking about here is because of the monsoon season as they are fat laden products and in monsoons one should avoid such things. If you prepare lassi at home that will not be fat laden and that is permitted. more  
I thought Besan was not good for health while Lass/Yogurt was. I am assuming you are only referring to the monsoon season. Timely post by the way Richi. Keep it up. more  
Useful information Richi. Thank you more
