Think beyond pakoras and make some healthy choices for breakfast this monsoon
We all love this part of the year, the monsoon, to make the most of the rain showers. Who can forget a steaming cup of tea and a plate of sizzling hot pakoras? Mostly none. Don't forget, though, that the monsoon season provides the ideal conditions for the growth of bacteria and germs that cause illness. Additionally, your body is not prepared for the season. So, pay attention to what you eat. To stay fit and healthy in this weather, all fried foods should be avoided. The skies frequently change from being cloudy to sunny blue, and the fields are covered in lush greens. The breeze sings goodbye to the summers. This is one of the many ways that nature honors the monsoon. So, what prevents us from preparing a variety of meals to celebrate the season in our kitchens? There is no denying that we adore those fritters and kachoris, and the rain makes us crave fried food more than ever. However, we may go above and beyond those and satisfy our monsoon desires with a few other foods. Make some healthy choices for breakfast this monsoon.
