Healthy Diet and Nutrition Plan for This Monsoon

The lower immune system is one of the main reasons various common monsoon diseases find their way in our body. A healthy diet is a key to good health. Here are some smart tips for healthy diet in monsoon.

Healthy Diet Tips for Rainy Season:

  • Eat Seasonal Fruits:

    Fruits like apples, jamuns, litchi, plums, cherries, peaches, papayas, pears and pomegranates are some of the best additions to your diet in rainy season to improve the immune system. Avoid watermelon and muskmelon.
  • Avoid Salt:

    Lower down the salt intake as it causes water retention and high blood pressure which may cause additional problems in the rainy season.
  • Avoid Watery Foods:

    Buttermilk, lassi, rice, watermelon etc. can cause swelling in the body. Avoiding such foods will take care of the water retention.
  • Garlic:

    A hint of garlic here and there in your food will help in improving your immune system.
  • Curd over Milk:

    Instead of milk, prefer to have curd or yogurt as it avoids any possibility of bad bacteria entering the body.
  • Boil Water:

    Prefer only boiled or purified water. Avoid drinking tap water directly.
  • Bitter is better:

    Vegetables like methi and bitter gourd, neem and turmeric as addition to the diet can help in preventing infections.
  • Oils:

    Sesame, peanut, and mustard oil can invite infections thus prefer to use corn oil or light oil.
  • Avoid Spicy Food:

    If you are prone to allergies, avoid spicy food as it increases body temperature and stimulates blood circulation which leads to the faster spread of allergies.
  • Limit Meat:

    If you are a hardcore non-vegetarian, limit meat for a couple of months. Instead of heavy curry dishes of meat prefer soups and stew.
  • Steam it:

    Avoid raw salad and make sure to steam it before eating during the rainy season.
  • Herbal Warm Water:

    Those who suffer from infections and fever during rainy season can find relief with decoction prepared from ingredients like ginger, tulsi, and a dash of medicinal spices like cloves, pepper, cinnamon, cardamom.
  • Avoid Street-Food:

    Pre-cut fruit, fried food, junk food or any street-food should be avoided completely.


All these diet and nutritional tips along with timely preventive health checkup with your physician will help you to safeguard your health from the common monsoon diseases and enjoy the rainy season to the fullest.
