Monsoon being much awaited season after summer comes with lots of  things like Blooming flowers , Mitti ki khusbu , Tip-tap raindrops , Dip in temperature ( much relief from scorching summer heat).

All these being pleasant ones and people do enjoy rainy season and its delicacies .

But there are some unpleasant and unwanted things too  like virus , bacteria , germs , mosquitoes  and health problems related to these.
So one need to be careful and should take proper measures  to protect oneself from all these .

Some Foods To Avoid  in Monsoon 
1. Leafy Vegetables 
The grime and dampness present in it makes them susceptible to germs.
2. Fizzy Drinks 
It reduces minerals in our body which in turns leads to reduction in enzyme activity.

Some of  the popular  Monsoon Food 

ROASTED CORN 
Liked by all , its delicious and healthy .
It's a rich source of  Fiber , Vitamin C , Folate , Proteins & carbohydrate .
Vitamin C in it acts as antioxidant and  improves immunity .
It also helps to feel fuller for longer thus helps to maintain weight.

Hot soups are relishing and delicious and liked by people of all age group .

Past few years I am drinking lots of  green tea because of its health benefits .
Recently I saw a new brand  on Amazon , TE-A-ME 
It has some wonderful flavors of  tea .
I have tried few and liked them , good to taste & are refreshing .
Flavors like Peach Tea , Lemon Honey are too good .

They have some flavors in Wellness Infusion Tea .
The one flavor  which  I want to try is Cardamom Turmeric Tea .
It's  a blend of  Golden Turmeric , Cardamom & Fruity Orange peel .
It's rich in antioxidants and helps to flush out toxins from the body and improves immunity. 
We all know health benefits of cardamom and turmeric , when blended in a green  tea is too good .
Since it's packed in a Tea Bag , very easy to prepare  , one can add honey or sugar as per taste or can simply have it without any sweetner. 
These  packs are Travel  Friendly too .
