Millets To Eat During The Summer

by True Elements 08 Sep 2023

Summer is here and it's time we alter our diets to the weather with some healthy and nutritional millets. Can millets be eaten in summer? If so, which millets to eat in summer? Which millets are summer millets? Etc. will all be answered in this blog. There are several millets known to the Indian diet but we need to understand which millet is easy to digest, hard to digest, easy to make and most importantly when to eat given the weather/season.

Millets that are cooling: The ideal millets to be eaten in the summer are Jowar, Ragi, Foxtail millet, Barnyard millet and Kodo millet. These cooling millets can be incorporated into your diet in summers.

Why are millets important: Magnesium is an essential mineral for energy metabolism, protein synthesis, blood pressure and blood sugar control. Millets provide a great lot of energy during these periods when blood pressure imbalances and diabetes are among our top concerns. The body needs the preservation of potassium and electrolytes in the sweltering heat. Millets, as high-nutrient meals, hydrate the body and help prevent significant illnesses including heat exhaustion, migraines and sunstrokes.

The above-mentioned millets to eat in the summer can be added to your diet in various ways such as:

  1. Cold Ragi Soup
  2. Mysore Millet Dosa
  3. Ragi Flakes
  4. Bajra Flour to make Bhakri/Roti
  5. Cereal Biscuit (Made with Jowar)
  6. Bajra Yoghurt Salad
  7. Jowar Pilaf

Many nutritionists and dieticians have always suggested eating natural foods as the greatest approach to keeping our bodies in balance. To make the offer more appealing, there has been a surge in recipes that substitute millets for wheat and rice in popular cuisines. Millets can be used to make cakes, noodles, cookies, dosa, khichdi, brownies, pav bhaji, and roti.

The most important element to keep your body cool is water. Ensure you drink enough water in a day to keep your body hydrated even if you are indoors. Water will help cleanse your body and absorb the nutrients of the food you eat better. So, get your hands on these millets and create refreshing summer recipes!
