Nowadays, instead of heavy and hot meals, it is useful to choose refreshing Turkish foods and drinks, giving both healthy, light and practical recipes.

In summer, you can ease the overwhelming effect of heat by making some changes to your diet. In this way, you are fed healthy and your water loss is reduced. Turkey Medicals member and Turkish Dietitian and Phytotherapy specialist ‘ recommendations that will allow you to relax in the Heat in Turkey are as follows:


* First choose water to refresh. Because replacing lost water is very important for general health. Consuming mixtures, especially for removing edema, at a time when water consumption is low, can lead to water loss to worse points.


* It would be good to avoid excessively fatty foods during this period. It is especially useful to take advantage of vegetables and fruits with low sugar content that can replace the water we have lost with sweating.

* When you do not want to consume vegetables as a meal, you can prepare salads with plenty of ingredients, healthy and satisfying. According to the content of these salads, sometimes they can be a side dish next to the dish, and sometimes they can be a substitute for the main dish.


* Yogurt, which does not end up counting health benefits, also has a refreshing feature. In addition, you can eat plain, as well as add fruit or freeze it.

* Along with sweating, water loss occurs, as well as mineral loss in the body. One of the healthiest ways to replace lost minerals is to consume natural plain mineral water. If you like the taste, you can drink a glass of plain mineral water every day if you don’t have blood pressure problems or sodium restrictions.
