Summers

It’s the season of light food and lot of fluids. This is the time of year for salads , icecreams and cold soups. In this season food with cooling properties should be consumed.
Food like cucumber, watermelon, melon, litchis, mango, lime, gourds are consumed abundantly because they have more water content and thus give you a cooling effect.
Oils  should be consumed least, as the body already excrete a lot of sweat and grime. Pulses which are lighter like moong and masoor are the best for this.

Monsoon

This is the transitory phase between summer and winter. In this season almost all vegetables are available so it becomes more difficult to chose what is right because monsoon months are notorious for water contamination and spread digestive disorders including jaundice and typhoid.
In this season avoid raw food and food high in water content.
