During monsoons your immunity could be compromised because of fluctuating temperatures, dehydration, inadequate sleep. Hence, you become prone to common ailments such as a sore throat, common cold, viral infections, jaundice and fever. Viral infections are often unpleasant and take five to seven days to clear. So build your immunity to manage these monsoon maladies. What you need are foods that are natural immunity builders. Here are 10 such that are best for you during the rainy season.
Eggs are considered one of the most nourishing food items. The egg yolk contains iron and vitamins A and D; the egg white is rich in proteins, which helps build resistance to infection. Eggs can be eaten on their own or added to other dishes. You can eat them boiled, scrambled, fried, or poached and also make egg curry, egg biryani, omelette, egg salad, egg rolls and sandwiches. An egg a day is preferred by eggitarians, but you can safely have two if you want. Make sure you do not wash eggs after you buy them, under running water. Also note that it is better to consume cooked products of egg rather than their raw counterparts.
