Food items you should never eat in this monsoon
Have the rainstorm showers made you connect for some garam chai, Bhutta (corn), Momos and a steaming plate of pakodas? We start thinking of food items and start craving for them. It’s as if the monsoon experience is incomplete without the food we’re simultaneously imagining and salivating.
Here are some food items you should never eat in this monsoon-
1. Leafy vegetables
Leafy vegetables are a known fact that they are very essential for health. However, avoiding intake of leafy veggies during monsoon is suggested. The humidity, dirt and mud in the leaves make these veggies vulnerable to many germs. Therefore, in the monsoon season, you should have lettuce, spinach, chicken, and cauliflower on your not to eat list.
2. Deep-fried food
We understand how much you want your warm cup of tea to eat pakoras and samosas, but avoiding it is advisable. We say so because of the weather’s humidity. The human digestive system does not work at complete ability anyway, the method itself during the monsoon is a little slow. Eating these deep-fried food products can, therefore, lead to gastronomic complications such as bloating and stomach upset.
3. Sea Food
During the monsoon, seafood should definitely be prevented. The reason being, for fish and other types of ocean animals, monsoon is the breeding season. Fishes contain eggs that can cause stomach infection or serious food poisoning when eaten inside their bodies.
4. Roadside Juices
The juices sold on the highway can be produced from fruits that are cut well in advance and have a good opportunity of becoming infected during monsoons. Similarly, fruit salads sold on the highway must also be avoided as they are cut in advance and may become infected. Prepare your juices with fresh fruits at home and eat immediately.
Mushrooms usually grow in humid regions and need to be cleaned correctly before consumption, but the risk of bacterial diseases is much greater during the monsoon season. Therefore, it is advised not to consume mushrooms during monsoon to be on a safer side.
