Summer Care - What to EAT?

Food and what you eat or drink can make or mar your summer. Always remember to carry a bottle of boiled water. Some in Kerala use herbs while boiling water. This has a cooling effect. You could also try adding a pinch of coriander seeds or cumins while boiling water. Avoid roadside fruit juices or sodas when you are not sure of the water that has been used. Do not take cut fruits or pavement food. Eat vitamin rich foods - large amounts of vitamin C and E seem to make skin more resistant to burning. So do carotenoids (found in green and yellow fruits and vegetables). Include plenty of foods that are rich in these nutrients in your diet. Make sure you drink plenty of water. Go easy on you diet. Replace spicy and oil food with lots of fruits and salads. You will feel and look fresher.
