Kaushiki Question by Kaushiki on May 24, 2022Hindi

Dear Roopashree,
What kind of diet will you advise in this excessive heat?
Also, are there yoga asanas that can keep us cool?
Thank you.


That’s a great question!

Nature always has a way of keeping us healthy and safe. Seasonal fruits and vegetables are the proof of the same.

However, we have moved away from all things natural and most of our diet includes either grains or packaged foods.

The simplest way is to consume all fruits -- whether its mangoes or watermelon -- and vegetables that come during the season in moderate amounts.

In vegetables, bottle gourd, cucumber, pumpkin, coconut all have a cooling effect on your stomach.

In greens, mint and coriander are your best friends to deal with the hot season.

Make home-made aam panna. Have a sattu drink in the morning and chaas in the afternoon to beat the heat!

You can practice Sheetali pranayam in the morning/evening for its cooling effect.
