Fitness first: These 6 healthy food you should eat in Summer season
LAHORE- Summer season is the perfect time to switch to light clothes and active lifestyle, but did you know it's also the right time to change your diet. During summers there is a large variety of fruits and vegetables in the market. Don't miss the chance to "Eat local, in-season fruits. Their nutrients are at their peak in the summer".

Here are some of the healthy food items you should add to your diet this year:

1# Mushrooms: This summer, the hottest choice for grillers is mushroom. A flavorful, low-fat substitute for meat that pairs well with heart-healthy ingredients like garlic and olive oil, the portobello is as good for your taste buds as it is for your waistline. Mushrooms are effective at stabilizing female test subjects’ blood sugar and minimizing insulin spikes, staving off cravings and keeping those unwanted pounds at bay.

2# Cucumbers: Stay cool as a cucumber this summer by making this crunchy veggie part of your menu. Super-hydrating cucumber is low in calories, loaded with inflammation-fighting antioxidants, and can even reduce your risk of hypertension.

3# Grapefruit:  Enjoy a cool and easy breakfast this summer by making grapefruit part of your regular routine. In addition to its high vitamin C content, which can boost your immune system and help you fend off those summer colds.

Grapefruit is an amazing choice for anyone trying to slim down. Studies suggest that grapefruit can help stabilize insulin levels, shutting up those voices telling you to indulge your sugar cravings, and it can also make it easier to shed that spare tire.

4#Watermelon: Getting healthier this summer starts with a familiar staple: watermelon. Made up of more than 90 percent water, this sweet treat is a great way to stay cool and hydrated, even on the hottest summer days.

5# Corn on the Cob:  Easy to cook, making corn part of your summertime menu is an easy way to make your meals healthier in an instant. In addition to packing nearly 2 grams of fibre in every 60-calorie ear, corn is a good source of lutein and zeaxanthin, a pair of phytochemicals.


6# Blueberries : Add blueberries into your favorite smoothie or just eating them on their own, each time you grab a handful of these sun-ripened berries, you’re steering a course toward better health. While they don’t share the same reddish hue as many sources of resveratrol, blueberries are still loaded with the stuff, making them a great choice for anyone trying to transform their body.

They’re also a low-glycemic food, meaning that they don’t result in drastic insulin spikes brought about by other sweet treats.
