The change in temperature on the street dictates its rules, and surprisingly, this aggressively sunny period, bringing with it a number of inconveniences, discomfort, must also be governed by rules, following which, life will be more pleasant.
Rule № 1
In summer we sweat, and this is a physiological process for thermoregulation. With sweat, we lose water and important electrolytes – Na, K, Mg, Ca, which require replenishment. It is difficult to do this with a colored liquid with sugar or sugar substitutes and bubbles, so do not “quench your thirst” with such drinks, but listen to your body and replenish the water balance primarily with the formula H2O.
Safety, caution and vigilance. Remember that the heat makes adjustments to the quality of products, in case of non-compliance with the rules of storage of which the danger increases exponentially. Be especially vigilant to products such as sausages, raw meat and fish, dairy products, cream, exclude those products that spoil quickly at this temperature. Avoid deliveries at this time, combine the pleasant with the useful.
Summer is a real gift to our body in terms of enrichment of macro- and micronutrients. Add greens, vegetables and lettuce to every meal. They are rich in potassium, calcium, B vitamins (especially folate), C, antioxidants.
Berries, fruits – a must, but let’s try without overeating (melon and watermelon say hello). Dilute the diet with cold soups. You will find high-quality protein in eggs, fish, meat (without frying), legumes. They are perfect for breakfast and lunch.
Dinners are sometimes made from a combination of vegetables and healthy fats (for example, stewed zucchini, zucchini, tomato, onion with olive oil, sesame seeds, olives or avocado).
Hot time has its nuances, but does not cancel the fullness and diversity. Use the season 100% for your own benefit, without heaviness and dehydration.
