HomeLifestyle

August 06, 2021

In summer, we are often less hungry with the hot weather and especially less desire to eat hearty and hot dishes. Logical, right? But you still have to eat to avoid discomfort.

So what to eat when it's so hot? Digesting food requires energy from the body, which warms it up through the metabolism. This is why we are less hungry! We, therefore, prefer small portions several times a day.

But when the sun is shining outside, and the market gardeners' stalls are full of seasonal fruits and vegetables, nothing could be easier. So here's a guide to what to eat this summer!

Maybe you think that it is better to eat oranges in winter, to fight against colds and flu. But orange is rich in potassium, a mineral salt that your body needs to recharge and rehydrate in summer because a good part of the water in your body is lost during the natural phenomenon of sweating. This is no reason not to exercise!

Yogurt
