How to master the warm season easily.

As the temperatures rise in the summer season, our body reacts accordingly to the heat. Using cooling (not cold) foods is one way to stay healthy and vital through the summer months.
From an Ayurvedic point of view, it is now time to reduce Pitta! All cooling foods, such as green vegetables, fennel, broccoli, cucumbers, but also sweet fruits, melons, mango, fresh figs as well as bitter herbs such as coriander, dill and borage should be on your menu now. Read more here:

  • Green vegetables: e.g. spinach, kale, chard and rocket are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are also low in calories and help to cool the body.
  • Fennel: is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. It can help relieve digestive problems and cool the body (e.g. in the form of fennel tea).
  • Broccoli: is rich in vitamin C and fibre. It can help cleanse the body and strengthen the immune system.
