A classic example would be meat. Now, consuming meat isn’t bad for health. However, in summer, it is advisable to cut down on your meat consumption for several reasons. One reason is that eating meat generates a lot of body heat. Another reason is that meat spoils easier during summer. You might have a state-of-the-art fridge, but how do you know where your meat has been stored, and or how long before it reached you?
Here are some foods, that you should include in your diet simply because they are nutritious and will keep you cool.
You may recognise the omnipresent Nutrela packets on supermarket shelves. Soybean meals are a significant and cheap source of protein and other nutrients including dietary minerals, and vitamin B. Soy is often used as a meat substitute and for a good reason–it provides the nutritional equivalent of meat, eggs and casein for human growth and health. So, ditch the regular meat, and cook up a yummy soybean feast to stay fuelled, yet cool this summer.
