Rising Temperatures and Health Risks

With temperatures soaring, the risk of illness increases as pathogens thrive in hot weather. To combat this, incorporating bitter foods into your diet can boost your immune system.

Nutritional Powerhouse: Bitter Gourd

Available year-round, bitter gourd is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also a good source of iron. While its bitter taste may not be popular, boiling and mixing it with rice and a bit of ghee can make it more palatable for both adults and children.

Other Beneficial Bitter Foods

In addition to bitter gourd, other bitter foods like drumstick leaves and flowers, fenugreek, kalmegh (green chiretta), and thankuni (Indian pennywort) offer various health benefits. Each of these foods can be prepared in different ways to suit your taste.
