Feel the heat? Take a chill pill with 6 naturally cooling foods

Whether it’s the wrath of the summer gods or just humanity-induced climate change, the summer heat is here in all its glory. As the mercury reaches higher levels that go beyond scorching, you can often feel drained, fatigued and dehydrated.

Luckily, the wisdom of Ayurvedic healing is here to the rescue. According to Ayurveda, it is essential to change your dietary habits and lifestyle with the change in seasons.

Here are a few naturally cooling and water-rich foods that you must consume in the summer season.

CUCUMBER

Cucumbers are not just the best way to add some crunch to your salad, they are also rich in antioxidants, promote hydration and help cool your body.

CURD

Rich in probiotics, curd is great for your gut and helps soothe your stomach, making it a great summer saviour. Have some spiced buttermilk or whip up some good ol' cold, sweet lassi to quench your thirst.

BOTTLE GOURD

Bottle gourd or lauki as we call it in India is a summer treasure. The green vegetable is about 92 per cent water and rich in vitamin C, K and calcium. Embrace lauki ki sabzi or have green lauki juice.

MINT

There’s a reason why mint or pudina is a staple in summer drinks, chutneys and desserts. Load up on this cooling and refreshing herb to help keep headaches, bad breath and indigestion at bay.

WATERMELON

Melons are synonymous with summers. Melon, watermelon or cantaloupes are all great ways to stay hydrated and keep your minerals and electrolytes in check.

COCONUT WATER

There’s nothing like coconut water to quench your thirst in summer. It is a great source of vital nutrients and electrolytes, some even call it nature’s own energy drink.

The change in seasons can be often tough on the internal systems but it always helps to listen to your body and just pay attention to your cravings.
