Best Drinks to Stay Healthy During the Kerala Rains

The rainy season brings relief from the summer heat in Kerala, but it also poses various health challenges. Increased humidity and moisture can lead to a higher risk of infections, colds, flu, and other ailments. To combat these issues and boost your immunity, here are some healthy drinks you can easily prepare at home:

Herbal Teas: Herbal teas made with ingredients like ginger, turmeric, tulsi, lemongrass, cinnamon, mint, and Brahmi can help boost your immunity. Boil two cups of water, add two teaspoons of your preferred herbs and spices, strain the tea, and sweeten it with honey or jaggery if desired. Enjoy it hot for its flavorful and health-boosting properties.

Manjal Paal (Turmeric Latte): Also known as ‘haldi doodh’ or ‘turmeric latte,’ this bedtime drink is great for the rainy season. Boil milk and add a pinch of turmeric once it reaches boiling point. You can add honey for extra sweetness. This drink can relieve cold and flu symptoms, warm your body, promote relaxation and sleep, and support joint health.

Low-Calorie Soups: Vegetable clear soups are nutrient-dense and beneficial for digestive health and weight management. Ingredients like carrots, celery, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, broccoli, lentils, and spinach can provide warmth, comfort, and support for your immune functions.

Warm Water with Lemon and Honey: This simple and soothing drink aids digestion and promotes hydration. Just mix warm water with a squeeze of lemon and a dash of honey. Additionally, hot kanji water infused with spices or herbs of your choice can provide the necessary nutrition and energy for the season.

These drinks can help you stay healthy and enjoy the rainy season in Kerala without falling prey to common seasonal ailments.
