We all know that leafy greens are filled with nutrients and boost immunity to a great extent. But what is also true of them is that they are highly susceptible to germs in the rainy season given the fact that they’re rather damp and moist. Germs attach themselves easily to such foods and even washing them enough doesn’t leave them absolutely bacteria-free. So it’s best to stay away from veggies like palak, cabbage and cauliflower.
Cut fruits left out for long can be dangerous for your system, especially in the monsoons. Whether kept out at home or on the streets, cut fruits when left exposed for long, come in contact with the contaminated air present in the moist weather. We suggest you cut fruits and immediately consume them during the monsoons.
As much you love seafood, you must know that monsoon is a breeding season for fish and prawns. Moreover, the waters collect mud and grime during this time making it almost impossible to find a fresh catch. So wait for the monsoons to get over if you want fresh seafood to treat yourself to.
