Scorching summer is up and excessive heat can upset the body causing irritability, sleep problems, exhaustion, dehydration and lack of concentration.

By eating plenty of cooling foods we can cool our body from the inside out.

Cooling Summer Foods – Astringent Foods!!!!   

 

 

The term astringency describes the drying and sometimes puckering sensation that is experienced after tasting.  Foods like bananas and grapes also contain an astringent molecule called tannin that gives these foods their “dryness.”  When you consume astringent foods, the tissues of your body contract, or shrink, and increase the water absorption by the body.  This absorption increases the water content in your cells which in turn, keeps your body temperature cooler.

Try it:  Toss a handful of grapes and bananas in your fruit salad and enjoy a healthy and fruity desert that will keep you cool in the summer.

Juicy and delicious water melons are a rich source of essential vitamins like vitamin A, B and C and anti-oxidants like lycopene. These vitamins are quite helpful for our body to produce required energy. Watermelon is a natural diuretic that facilitates the flushing out of toxins from your body gently and it cleanses your system to reveal youthful skin and also prevents excess oil secretion in skin during summer. Watermelon juice guards your skin from the damages made by the sun.
