While the thrill of summer and summer vacations never goes away, the glare of the sun can be taxing. Keep your temper low and your energy high by incorporating these tips. Since summer is hot, bright and sharp, this is the time to balance our bodies with natural coolness. Simply change the diet to cool and pure foods to enable our bodies to feel naturally fresh and light.
Enjoy the abundance of local fruits: juicy melons, plums, peaches, berries and more.
Pile your food basket with the vegetables that abound and steam or grill for a satisfying meal.
Drink coconut water, homemade smoothies, green juices, fresh lemonade and lassi (yogurt drink).
Fresh green salads, steamed or raw vegetables along with grilled chicken, fish, or meat make the perfect summer lunch and dinner.
AVOID hot and spicy foods or those that are overly sour and salty foods.
Wear a hat and sunglasses. Swim, walk on green grass and breathe deeply to energize your body.
